When the tragic death of Patty Gilmore occurred, family, friends, patients, and contemporaries—all those who were considered advocates for Doctor Irvin Gilmore—stepped forward to support him when he was charged with criminal homicide. He was a man who had always shown good character and more importantly was a doctor who possessed a profound dedication to his patients.
This trait had made him a celebrity in his community. After reading this book you might agree or disagree with the verdict that was handed down in 1987 by the Gilmore jury. But the verdict isn’t the critical aspect of this case. It’s the unknown and unanswered circumstances that dominated this complicated case from the very beginning that has caused it to remain a mystery to this day.
Even though much of the memory and the speculation about it will fade away, as history always does, it will long continue to be an open case in the minds of many. Fortunately, reading and understanding all the evidence in the long series of events allows readers the luxury of judging Doctor Gilmore’s innocence or guilt in their own minds without the stress of being a member of an improperly influenced jury so prevalent in these types of celebrity cases.
Rule him innocent based on the facts, not because he was a respected and committed family doctor. Decide if he’s guilty based on the facts, not because he was a heavy drinker who perhaps harbored jealousy over his beautiful, much younger wife who could be hard to control.
Patty Gilmore’s tragic death marked the beginning of a long, tangled web of legal proceedings that matched a determined team of prosecutors against well-known defense attorney Emmanuel “Manny” Dimitriou.
