Missing Bitcoin Millionaire Found Dead with Gunshot Wound

John Forsyth, 49, early Bitcoin proponent, founder of Onfocoin, and Emergency Room Physician who’s been missing for over a week, has been found dead under suspicious circumstances.

Forsyth was reported missing about a week ago when he failed to show up for work at Mercy Hospital in Cassville, Missouri.

Forsyth was so passionate about his job that he slept in his RV in the hospital parking lot when he had back-to-back shifts. Not showing up for work was a red flag for his colleagues, who told police that Forsyth never missed work.

Forsyth, 49, was last seen about 7 a.m. local time on May 21, the Cassville Police Department said in a statement.

The search was on, and police found Forsyth’s car with a few personal belongings inside at a local park. Surveillance footage captured his vehicle arriving at a Cassville aquatic park shortly afterward and a white SUV pulling up near him. Forsyth then got out of the car and walked away, but it’s unclear where he went, brother Richard Forsyth said.

Forsyth remained missing for a week until a kayaker discovered Forsyth’s body Tuesday afternoon in northwest Arkansas’ Beaver Lake, the Benton County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The body was found near the shore, about 20 miles south of Cassville, and had an apparent gunshot wound.

The discovery of Forsyth’s remains has stunned the community of Cassville, a city of about 3,000 people in southwestern Missouri, not far from the state line. Forsyth was a doctor at the town’s Mercy Hospital for two decades.

Investigators told the family they are working on retrieving information from John Forsyth’s phones. Meanwhile, Richard Forsyth maintains he has no reason to believe his brother died by suicide.

“I can give a TED Talk on why my brother did not kill himself,” he said. Richard Forsyth added that his brother didn’t own a gun as far as he knows.

“This is a man who just got recently engaged; he was involved in philanthropic work and other projects he was passionate about and making plans for the future. He loved his kids and was so proud of them. He was devoted to them and had plane tickets to see them. He described his fiancée as the love of his life,” Richard Forsyth added.

“He was the happiest I’d ever seen him in his life. He’d even started a garden. This is not a profile of someone who killed himself.”

Dana Kammerlohr, Cassville’s police chief, confirmed that Forsyth’s body was found in Benton County, Arkansas, but declined to provide more information, citing an ongoing investigation.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office said their investigation is ongoing and cannot release any details.
