entry arrow10:07 PM | This is Dr. Potenciano Baccay.



Was Dr. Potenciano Baccay. He was one of Marcos' personal physicians and was Vice President of the National Kidney Foundation. But he made the mistake of revealing to the foreign press that the late strongman had kidney transplants in 1983 and 1984, fueling speculations that Marcos was seriously ill. He was later found stabbed to death, shortly after he spoke to The Pittsburgh Press. Police later said he was kidnaped and slain by communist rebels. A spokesman for Marcos later called the report "sheer fantasy." [Adapted slightly from The New York Times report.]
