The Other Dr. Gilmer: A True Crime

Family physician Dr. Benjamin Gilmer will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, November 18th at 3 p.m. He will present his book, The Other Dr. Gilmer: Two Men, a Murder, and an Unlikely Fight for Justice

Fresh out of medical residency, Dr. Benjamin Gilmer joined a rural North Carolina clinic only to find that its previous doctor shared his last name. Dr. Vince Gilmer was loved and respected by the community—right up until he strangled his ailing father and then returned to the clinic for a regular week of work. Vince’s eventual arrest for murder shocked his patients. How could their beloved doctor be capable of such violence? The deeper Benjamin looked into Vince’s case, the more he became obsessed with discovering what pushed a good man toward darkness.

Dr. Benjamin Gilmer is a family medicine physician in Fletcher, North Carolina. He is an Albert Schweitzer Fellow for Life and associate professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill.
