Who is Dr. Katherine Lindley Dodson? Wiki, Biography

Dr. Bharat Narumanchi was named by Austin, Texas, police as the doctor who barged into a medical office and took hostages at gunpoint before murdering a beloved pediatrician.
Police identified the victim as “Dr. Katherine Lindley Dodson, White female, 6/30/1977.” They identified the suspect as, “Dr. Bharat Narumanchi, Middle Eastern male, 8/10/1977.” The victim was more commonly known as Dr. Lindley Dodson.

The standoff and homicide unfolded on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 4:29 p.m at Children’s Medical Group. “He had numerous guns on him when he entered the building,” a police commander said in a news conference.

The motive is not clear, although Narumanchi was facing a terminal cancer diagnosis and had recently tried to apply at the doctor’s office.

“You saw her at your worst when your kid was sick, and she just always had a smile on her face,” said Karen Vladeck, whose children were Dodson’s patients, to the Austin American-Statesman. “She made you feel like you were the only parent there, even though there was a line of kids waiting.

Narumanchi, Who Was Also a Pediatrician, Took Hostages at Gunpoint But Let Them All Leave – Except for Dr. Dodson, Police Say

On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Austin 911 received a “Gun Hot Shot call” at 1912 W. 35th Street, Austin police reported in a news release.

“The caller reported that a male subject entered their place of business, a doctor’s office, with a gun and was holding hostages inside,” the release says.

“As the incident began to unfold, it was learned that several hostages were in fact being held inside the business. Several hostages initially escaped and others were later allowed to leave with the exception of Dr. Katherine Dodson.”

Dr. Narumanchi, Who Had Terminal Cancer, had Recently Applied at the Doctor’s Office

Officers conducted interviews with the hostages on scene and “were able to identify the suspect as Dr. Bharat Narumanchi,” the release says.

“Officers also learned that Dr. Narumanchi had been to this office a week ago and applied for a volunteer position. Dr. Narumanchi was a pediatrician who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Hostages reported to officers that he was armed with a pistol and what appeared to be a shotgun and had two duffel bags. Other than the previously mentioned visit to this office there did not appear to be any relation or other contact between Dr. Dodson and Dr. Narumanchi.”

Attempts by hostage negotiators to reach Narumanchi failed.

“We know they had contact a week or two previous when he applied for the position,” police said in a news conference. “He just kind of walked in and had contact with many of people.” Dodson was one of them. Police said Narumanchi’s family was considering hospice care for him.
