Trump’s Drug Pricing Czar Found Dead; Multiple Blunt Force Injuries, Ruled Suicide

Daniel Best

For the record.

The Nov. 1 death of Daniel Best, who led U.S. Department of Health and Human Services efforts to lower prescription drug prices, has been ruled a suicide.

Police say Best was found "unresponsive" near the garage door exit of an apartment building in Washington, D.C.'s Navy Yard neighborhood at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1, and was pronounced dead by medical personnel who responded to the scene.

The city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Thursday said Best died from "multiple blunt force injuries" and it ruled his death a suicide. It would not release further information.

Two days before his death, HHS published a question-and-answer article where Best explained one of the initiatives he led was expected to save the government more than $50 billion in its first eight years on Medicare and Medicaid expenses—at the expense of drugmakers and/or other developed countries.

  1. Multiple blunt force trauma. Typical suicide.

  2. This must be either satire from The Onion, or a posthumously-published work of Franz Kafka. Suicide by multiple, blunt-force trauma? Come now...

  3. Oh, yeah, the most popular method of suicide...Beating yourself to death. Guess he couldn't find his nail gun.

  4. His wife needs to hire a lawyer to get the cause of death changed on the death certificate. His life insurance will NOT pay out on suicide death. This needs to be done immediately because statute of limitations. There needs to be other evidence of suicide like notes, previous attempts or threats to kill oneself etc etc.

    1. Most life insurance policies have a provision where they don't pay out for suicide withiwithin the first 2 years of the policy purchase, but after that period they typically do.

    2. True and I'm assuming that he has his highest value policy through his job which he recently started

  5. Drug dealers are going to be drug dealers. Sad, evil and true.
