Dr. Jesse Haggard, the formermedical directorofRevolution Medical CenterinPhoenix, is finally in the hands ofUS federal authorities. After fleeing from US to Costa Rica, Haggard finally decided to surrender in Orlando, Florida where marshals will take him from there.
In 2006, one of Haggard’s patients,John Vorves, abodybuilder, died of drug overdose. Based on theMaricopa County Medical Examiner’srecords, hydrocodone overdose was the cause of his death. At the scene ofVorves’ death, several bottles ofsteroidpills containingDr. Haggard’sname were found.
John’smother,Alice Vorves, was finally relieved that justice would finally be given to the death of his son. She is relieved to know that the doctor is finally in the hands of authorities where he would not be able to harm any one.
ABC 15, one of the networks, previously conducted an undercover documentary insideRevolution Medical Center. The network discovered several other patients’ deaths aside fromVorves. It was also during this time whenHaggardwent into hiding.
According to investigators,Haggardprescribed more than 220 painkillers in a month, which is excessive.
Haggard continued to offer his medical services online despite facing more than 15 charges due toillegal drug distribution.
In 2009, Sean Shafer and The Compounding Center, Inc.,of Phoenix, Arizona were charged with illegally distributing HGH. The indictment alleged that the company's Web site touted impermissible uses of HGH for "anti-aging" purposes and that from 2001 through 2006, nine doctors made more than 400 purchases totaling more than $1.1 million. The indictment also states that Shafer, in his capacity as the manager of the wholesale department of the Compounding Center, also sold a number of HGH kits to two undercover operatives who specifically told him that the purchases were for bodybuilders and athletes
