LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock's former Deputy Chief Medical Examiner is under fire. A document specialist from Austin who often works for defense attorneys has filed a medical board complaint against Dr. Paul Shrode. The complaint says Dr. Shrode falsified his credentials during his time here in Lubbock in order to get a job as the Chief Medical Examiner in El Paso County.
Shrode has said publicly he listed a law degree on his resume by mistake. El Paso County Commissioners are defending Shrode.
While here in Lubbock he worked on such high profile cases such as the death of teenager Thomas Mallory. Shrode was in Lubbock from mid 2004 to late 2005.
