                      Russell Vega


Russell Vega was appointed by Governor Jeb Bush in 2003. He has chosen to not speak for the dead, and instead covered the backs of corrupt law enforcement who covered up a murder.

Why does the current medical examiner oppose the former medical examiner who signed Murray Cohen's death certificate?

Dr. William Anderson was the medical examiner at the time of Murray Cohen's death. From the day he was presented with evidence that Murray Cohen was murdered, he has tried to fix his mistake and has recommended that Murray Cohen needs an immediate exhumation to determine his true cause of death.

How do we know Murray Cohen did not give himself Corazol?

1. The loving wife of three weeks lied about the circumstances

of how and where Murray Cohen died.

2. The loving wife of three weeks has spent over $140,000

fighting exhumation of her husband’s body.

3. The loving wife of three weeks clearly denied Murray Cohen

timely medical assistance.

4. The loving wife of three weeks faked CPR during the 911

call.

5. The loving wife of three weeks told the 911 operator that

Murray Cohen was not breathing and total gone when he was

alive and pleading for help.

6. The loving wife of three weeks is clearly hearding yelling at

Murray Cohen to “Give Up”.

The Killer told a much different version of how Murray died to the mourners at his funeral in New Jersey. Why does Medical Examiner Russell Vega refuse to speak with the witness to this day?

See Witness Statement 

_______________________________________________________

Medical Examiner, Dr. Vega has refused for the last 6 ½  years to speak with a witness who could provide him with proof that Murray Cohen did have neurologic and gastrointestinal symptoms prior to his death and would prove that his statement in his summary is inaccurate. Please see Dr. Russell Vega’s summary and opinion.

M.E. Summary Report

_______________________________________________________

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told Florida Department of Law Enforcement that Corazol was an unusual but reasonable cardiovascular medication.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper that Corazol could not remedy Cohen’s heart condition, kill pain, or improve his sex life.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told the Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper that Corazol was so obscure, that the FDA had no record of it.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told the Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper that Corazol was used as a cardiovascular stimulant in European Labs to cause seizures in rats to test anti-epileptic drugs.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told the Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper that Corazol solution in a high enough dose could cause a heart attack.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told Florida Department of Law Enforcement that he tested Murray Cohen’s embalmed vitreous fluid and found no presence of Corazol.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper that there was no way to know how the embalming fluid affected the test.

Dr. Goldberger, who performed the test at the Florida University Laboratory, confirmed that embalming fluid could mask the presence of Corazol.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told Florida Department of Law Enforcement that there was no value to further test for Corazol.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega wrote in his summary of March 18, 2004, that he believed an exhumation of Murray Cohen’s body would not yield any useful information pertinent to the cause of Murray’s death.

Medical Examiner, Russell Vega told the Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper the surest way to determine Murray Cohen’s cause of death would have been an autopsy. He further stated “ Looking Back, I Wish an Autopsy Would Have Been Performed”.

The Medical Examiner in charge at the time of Murray’s death, Dr. William Anderson and who signed Murray Cohen’s death certificate believes that an immediate and urgent exhumation is necessary to perform an autopsy and determine Murray Cohen’s true cause of death.

Why would current Medical Examiner Russell Vega oppose an exhumation and autopsy when the Medical Examiner in charge at the time of Murray Cohen’s death believes an autopsy is needed to determine the true cause of his death.
