Associates Now Cooperating With Prosecutors



BOSTON -- The case is growing against a Stoneham doctor linked to a notorious murder case.

Team 5 Investigates Sean Kelly confronted Dr. Timothy Stryker outside court Tuesday and questioned him about what Team 5 uncovered. The weight of the case against Stryker may be weakening his defense.

Case Grows Against Doctor

"I think Dr. Stryker's character has been revealed," said attorney David Yannetti, who represents Stryker's former close friend and patient, Richard Chambers who's now cooperating with prosecutors.

"Richard Chambers has decided to set the record straight and tell the truth," Yannetti said.

Chambers and Stryker are charged with suborning perjury. Prosecutors accuse both men of fabricating a story and recruiting someone to tell it -- all to clear Stryker from a multi-million dollar judgment against him.

A jury found the Stoneham doctor civilly liable for the unsolved 1993 murder of his girlfriend, Dr. Lynn Goudey.

Now, two men -- Chambers and their alleged recruit Craig Pizzano, who was already a state's witness -- say Stryker offered to pay them thousands to help execute the scheme he devised.

"He kept his promise to Dr. Stryker, and he now realizes that was a big, big mistake," Yannetti said.

"He knew that when it came time to face anyone from Dr. Goudey's family that he couldn't tell the same story. He couldn't do it," said Peter Bellotti, Pizzano's attorney.

"Both of these men are on record having a totally opposite story. These men have been coerced," Stryker said.

Doctor accused of killing his girlfriend dies in prison

Cause of Stryker's death not released

By Denise Lavoie

Associated Press / January 14, 2011

A doctor ordered to pay a $15 million civil judgment in the murder of his girlfriend has died in a prison hospital.
Timothy Stryker died Wednesday at Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in Boston, said Diane Wiffin, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Correction. Wiffin would not release the cause, but said his death had been anticipated.
Stryker, an endocrinologist, was serving a four-year prison sentence after pleading guilty in a perjury scheme. Prosecutors said he had enlisted two men to help him concoct a story about seeing his girlfriend with another man shortly before she was last seen alive.

Stryker was never criminally charged in the death of Dr. Linda Goudey, 42, an obstetrician from Stoneham. In 2006, a civil jury found there was enough evidence implicating Stryker and ordered him to pay $15 million to Goudey's family in their wrongful death lawsuit.
