The 'Tucson Weekly'
Dr. David Stidham had completed his day, seeing the young patients he comforted with toys, and enjoying an office visit with his wife and their two young kids. It wasn't unusual for Stidham, a beloved children's ophthalmologist, to zip back to his North First Avenue office in the evening to use a computer. Stidham set his office alarm at 7:24 p.m. When a cleaning crew found him outside, his scrubs were drenched in blood. Stidham, 37, was ready to drive home in his 12-year-old Lexus coupe when an assailant thrust a knife into him 16 times and bashed his skull, leaving a two-inch fracture.
