Just days after County Commissioners terminated Dr. Jerry Spencer as the Lubbock County medical examiner, Texas Tech is offering him a retirement package. Details of the package are not being released but a university spokesman says the doctor is expected to accept the offer.
County Commissioners hired an interim M.E. last week, as Texas Tech conducted an internal review of Dr. Spencer's work. Dr. Spencer is accused of improperly storing breast implants and an internal contraceptive device from corpses. Dr. Spencer said the items were used when teaching residents.
