Daniel Best commits suicide by beating himself to death
Nov 23, 2018
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Nov. 1 death of Daniel Best, a pharmaceutical executive from Bay Village who led U.S. Department of Health and Human Services efforts to lower prescription drug prices, has been ruled a suicide, officials in Washington, D.C., said Thursday.
Police say Best was found “unresponsive” near the garage door exit of an apartment building in Washington, D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1, and was pronounced dead by medical personnel who responded to the scene.
The city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Thursday said Best died from “multiple blunt force injuries” and it ruled his death a suicide. It would not release further information.
This is a bit like the man who shot himself in the head three times to make sure he was dead. His “multiple blunt force injuries” make me wonder which of these blows actually killed him. It is quite dangerous to save the people $50 billion in the cost of pharmaceutical drugs, which he claimed to be able to do. People have been killed for a lot less than that.
He was killed November 1st. The report above was published on November 15.
