Body Found Near Ephraim Believed to be Missing Doctor

Authorities Find Body Believed to Be Missing Wisconsin Doctor

Door County sheriff’s officials say a body found near Ephraim appears to be that of a missing Fox Valley doctor.

Authorities say a K-9 search team found human remains in the Town of Liberty Grove Wednesday afternoon near some trees in an uninhabited area.

Sheriff’s deputies and the state crime lab investigated after getting a search warrant for the property.

Sheriff’s investigators say clothing and personal items found with the remains lead them to believe the body is that of Dr. Jeffrey Whiteside, of Grand Chute, missing for about three weeks.

The Door County Medical Examiner is expected to do an autopsy Thursday to positively identify the remains.
