This story about an immigrant doctor, Vignendra Ariyarajah, is going to make you sick.
I don’t know why it isn’t all over cable news this morning! (Is it reluctance to show another ‘new American’ in a bad light?)
Indeed, there is very little coverage of the case of the doctor now wearing an ankle monitor in the media generally.
It seems that the New York Post got the scoop and in its usual swift and sensational fashion, the UK Daily Mail published the story yesterday replete with many photos of the alleged mastermind of a gruesome kidnapping case that resulted in the death of a new born baby.
And, with a photo of the good doctor with then Veep Joe Biden!
Here is the Daily Mail (hat tip: Diana),
A married Harvard-trained cardiologist has been accused of having his mistress’ baby killed after she became pregnant by another man.
Dr Vignendra Ariyarajah has been charged with criminally negligent homicide, manslaughter, and assault.
He allegedly hired two people, whose names have not been released, to trap his mistress Paul Marie Raymond, 30, in a Brooklyn home and torture her for days.
The co-conspirators, a man and a woman, allegedly starved Raymond and gave her water only through a syringe on Ariyarajah’s instructions.
Ariyarajah allegedly hired two people to trap his mistress Paul Marie Raymond, 30, and torture her for days.
Sources said they induced Raymond, who was seven-and-a-half months pregnant, with fentanyl and PCP in their efforts to kill the baby boy.
Meanwhile, Ariyarajah and his wife were on a ski vacation in Montana, according to the New York Post.
Raymond suffered through a prolonged labor for four days before the baby was born alive on December 24, 2016.
The boy died hours later of an infection and lack of medical intervention, according to the autopsy report.
The child tested positive for both fentanyl and PCP.
Raymond had chemical burns to her face and torn-off fingernails. There were also marks to her arms and legs suggesting she had been bound by a kind of rope or cord.
Ariyarajah was charged last month after one of his co-conspirators began cooperating with authorities.
Authorities said that Ariyarajah, who was born in Malayasia and completed a fellowship at Harvard, first met Raymond when she began working for him at a MedCare Consultant Multi-Specialty Clinic.
There is much more here with more photos.
Visit the New York Post for its coverage as well.
By the way, Malaysia is a Muslim country, so we assume Ariyarajah is Muslim, but we do not know that for sure.
