Probe into slain doctor continues

By Deborah Highland Bowling Green Daily News

BOWLING GREEN -- Bowling Green Police Department detectives continue to investigate the homicide of naturopathic doctor Juan Sanchez Gonzalez.

The Natural Health Center for Integrative Medicine was open Friday evening when someone walked in and found Gonzalez unresponsive inside his business, police department spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward said. Gonzalez operated the center at 1022 U.S. 31-W By-Pass.

Police and paramedics were called to check Gonzalez's welfare and found him dead. Police have not disclosed his cause of death but are referring to it as a homicide.

This is the city's fifth homicide in 2017, compared with four homicides in all of 2016 in the entire county. Police have made arrests in three of the city's 2017 homicides.

Gonzalez's office website shows that he was a graduate of the Trinity School of Natural Health in Warsaw, Indiana, and a U.S. Army veteran who retired at Fort Knox. He also held an MBA from Western Kentucky University, according to his website.

"Prior to becoming a naturopathic doctor I was a clinical administrator and consultant. During my career as a clinical administrator, I was diagnosed with diabetes and discovered that western medicine as a whole could not heal this condition" Gonzalez said on his website. "This prompted me to find a way to provide healing not just for me but for everyone."

His practice offered medicinal herbs, anti-aging repair, nutritional counseling, iridology and other services, according to the website.
