Doctor in Buffalo murder has committed suicide

Fox News reports:

A body found in thick brush Friday morning is believed to be that of a special forces soldier-turned-trauma surgeon who was the subject of a nationwide manhunt after the killing of his ex-girlfriend at a hospital, police said.

Police had been searching for 49-year-old Dr. Timothy Jorden since Wednesday morning, when 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski was found shot to death in a stairwell at the Erie County Medical Center.

The body was found Friday not far from Jorden’s suburban home near Lake Erie.

Dennis Richards, Buffalo Police Department chief of detectives, said the man apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy is being conducted.

I hadn’t gotten around to posting on this murder yet, though many readers had sent me items about it over the last two days. Jorden of course was black and the ex-girl friend he murdered, Jacqueline Wisniewski, was white.

I have previously argued (here, here, and here) that while there is an element of potential danger in all non-marital sexual relationships, because of the violent sexual jealousy that may be triggered when the relationship ends, and therefore a society with mass non-marital sex, such as ours, will also have far more sexual violence than a traditional society, it is particularly dangerous for a white female to enter into a non-marital sexual relationship with a black male. But, while I have a huge number of news stories to back up this assertion, as well as the psychology to back it up (and in the third linked entry above the psychology is also explained in colorful and persuasive terms by two black female commenters whom I quote), I have no statistics to back it up. So here’s what I would like to know: Of all the white women in the U.S. who are murdered by a man they have had sexual relations with, how many are murdered by white men and how many by black men?

But that’s not the right question, as the answer would be meaningless in the absence of knowing the percentage of black man / white woman relationships out of all white women’s (heterosexual) relationships.

What we need to know is: what percentage of white woman / black man non-marital relationships end in the murder of the woman, as compared with the percentage of white woman / white man non-marital relationships that end in the murder of the woman?

I suppose that an enterprising researcher could find this out.
