Breaking News : Warhol's Doctor Attacked on The Anniversary of His Death

OK, so yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Andy Warhol's death and I was planning to do a post on it. And then this happened.

(New York- WABC, February 22, 2007) - An elderly doctor is hospitalized with severe burns after an alleged sexual encounter.

79-year-old, Dr. Denton Cox remains in critical condition tonight. The doctor is well known for treating celebrities early in his career, like Andy Warhol.
Police say he was attacked inside his penthouse at 530 East 72nd Street.

Eyewitness News reporter Stacy Sager has the latest from the Upper East Side.

Initially, the doctor told police he was mugged and doused with some sort of chemical. But story wasn't all true. For example, he waited to report it until he was found in his apartment the next day with burns over 40% of his body.
