Minn. hospital's chief of anesthesiology found dead along Minneapolis highway

A body found by the side of an interstate near downtown Minneapolis has been identified as that of Christopher Robert, DO, the chief of anesthesiology at Minneapolis-based Hennepin County Medical Center, according to the Star Tribune.

His body was found over the weekend and identified on Tuesday. According to the report, Dr. Robert was last known to be walking home from HCMC's anesthesiology department's holiday party.

Authorities do not know what caused his death, but did note it did not appear to be caused by a hit and run crash.

Dr. Robert's wife, Kerry Ace, DO, an emergency room physician at Children's Hospital in St. Paul, told the Star Tribune her husband "helped people every day" and that "he was loved by everyone who knew him."

Dr. Robert attended medical school at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and completed his residency at HCMC, the Star Tribune reported.
