With shock and incomprehension now giving way to a terrible sorrow, I offer tribute to our colleague, Dr. Steven Pitt, who was murdered on May 31, 2018 in the parking lot of his Scottsdale office as he was leaving work at the end of the day. His colleagues in Phoenix and Scottsdale followed every news development for days, waiting to learn how and why this tragedy took place, as five additional related murders followed Dr. Pitt’s.
