PERSONAL LIFE: Dr. Payne was recently exonerated on all pending charges of first-degree murder in the Godley Hollow Angel of Death investigation. Dr. Payne had been accused of murdering over thirty elderly and terminally ill/injured patients over the last ten years. After an 18-month investigation, Dr. Payne was found to be innocent. However, the doc was only acquitted due to a lack of evidence. Some sources have said the physician performing the autopsy on the elderly patients didn't know to look for unknown drug compounds. Dr. Payne may have been performing clinical research on these patients without their knowledge, but we'll never know the truth.
