ABC News(BUFFALO, N.Y.) — The body of Dr. Timothy V. Jorden, the trauma surgeon suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend Wednesday, was found near his home today with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said.

Jorden was wearing scrubs when his body was found beside a creek in a wooded area near his Lakeview, N.Y., home. Police said they were able to identify the surgeon by his tattoos, but they declined to specify where he shot himself.

Jorden, 49, was wanted in connection to the death of his one-time lover, Jackie Wisniewski, 33, a nursing student who died Wednesday morning on the floor of the Erie County Medical Center.

The trauma surgeon, who also had Army weapons training, was considered armed and dangerous. He was the target of a hunt by local, state and federal authorities, including the U.S. Marshals and the FBI.
