Transcript-Interrogation of Gregory Lee

Interrogating Officer: Sgt. Adam Dalton

Location: 12 Hill St.-St. Luke's Hospital

Date: 10/21/2012

Time: 2:30PM

Dalton: Thank you for speaking with me Dr. Lee. I'm sure you are very busy.

Lee: I am. Let's make this quick, yeah?

Dalton: Of course. For the sake of the record, you are the Ludarac family's doctor, correct?

Lee: Yes.

Dalton: I'm curious about Dana Ludarac.

Lee: What about her? I can't divulge any of her medical records or history without a warrant.

Dalton: I'm actually curious about her baby.

Lee: That makes two of us.

Dalton: What do you mean?

Lee: I mean I'm curious about her baby too.

Dalton: In what way?

Lee: As far as I know, our hospital has no records of her delivery.

Dalton: She was pregnant though?

Lee: Yes. She was seeing an obstetrician here, Dr. Chriton.

Dalton: Oh, perhaps I should be speaking with him.

Lee: Her. And incidentally, that would be quite difficult. She passed away recently.

Dalton: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. How did she die, may I ask?

Lee: To be honest, I don't really know. I never got the details. People were being pretty hush-hush about the cause of death. If I had to guess, I'd probably say it was a suicide, although I don't really know, but that's how folks are acting.

Dalton: Oh. Well not to be cold, but let's return to the subject at hand. Dana Ludarac was pregnant?

Lee: Yes, definitely. Dr. Chriton sent me the records of Dana's pregnancy in case she had any other issues. She was still coming to me for general medical problems during her pregnancy when Dr. Chriton was unavailable, although I don't think I have seen her in about five months or so.

Dalton: What sort of problems?

Lee: The kind that I'll tell you about if you get a warrant.

Dalton: You said she never delivered.

Lee: I said that I have no knowledge regarding her delivery. That is not to say that she never did. Some women switch doctors in the middle of their pregnancy, others opt for at-home births, which we would have no part of other than recommending an outside professional, but that would only be if the patient told us about her plans which Dana didn't. In my experience, detective, pregnant women can be remarkably erratic and irrational at times. It's a stereotype, but it's one stereotype that is firmly rooted in reality although it is a bit blown out of proportion. This is certainly not an isolated incident. In fact, it's quite common.

Dalton: Was the rest of the family in good health?

Lee: Warrant.

IO: Okay. Thank you for your time, Dr. Lee.
