Dr. Jacquelyn Kotarac: Beloved doctor dies after getting stuck in lover's house chimney while trying to sneak in!
Dr. Jacquelyn Kotarac, a celebrated and praised doctor in Bakersfield (California), was discovered dead in a chimney of the house of a man she was dating. It seems like she was desperate to get inside the house and had tried different ways of getting in after she reportedly climbed on the roof of the house on Wednesday night, removed the chimney cap and slid feet first down the chute. Her body was found 3 days after it got stuck.
Although police have not released his name, NY Daily reports the man to be William Moodie.
Moodie seem to have sneaked out of the house on Wednesday to "avoid confrontation" while Dr Kotarac was trying to get inside the house. She even used a shovel to get in.
Mr Moodie, 58, described their relationship as 'on-again, off-again', but refused to comment on the circumstances surrounding her death.
He said: 'She made an unbelievable error in judgment and nobody understands why, and unfortunately she's passed away.

Her body was not discovered until a house-sitter noticed a smell and fluids coming from the fireplace on Saturday. The house-sitter and her son investigated with a torch and found Dr Kotarac's body wedged around 2ft above the interior fireplace opening.
It took firefighters nearly 5 hours to take the chimney apart and get Kotarac’s body out.
My personal speculation - It seems like Dr Kotarac had some argument or fight with her boyfriend. When she tried to get into the house to confront him, he didn't let her in - which led her to try all possible ways to get it. The last one is to try the Santa trick which left her stuck, resulting in her death.
Questions for this theory -
- Did the Moodie really leave the house before she got stuck? Or after?
- Why didn't he come back wednesday night?
- Why didn't he smell anything on Thursday?
Something definitely sounds wrong!
