Murder and cover-up could explain the Florida dental AIDS mystery [see comments]


Br Dent J. 1994 Dec 10-24;177(11-12):423-7. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

This article reconsiders the murder theory regarding the transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from Dr David J. Acer to at least six dental patients which was initially dismissed by American investigators from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Florida Health and Rehabilitative Service Department (HRS). In the light of withheld behavioural evidence from medical records, legal testimonies, and personal interviews obtained during the investigation, the information presented here strongly supports the conclusion that these transmissions were most likely intended by the dentist to execute a political and social vendetta.
