BUFFALO, N.Y. - A body found is believed to be that of a U.S. surgeon who was the subject of a nationwide manhunt after his ex-girlfriend was shot dead at a hospital, police said Friday.

Police had been searching for 49-year-old Dr. Timothy Jorden since Wednesday morning. The body was found in thick brush not far from Jorden's home.

The man apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said Dennis Richards, Buffalo Police Department chief of detectives. An autopsy was being conducted.

The search began after 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski was found shot to death in a stairwell in the Buffalo, New York, hospital where she worked.
