RIP JAMSHEED SHAMLOO (August 1, 1958 – February 27, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Monday at 4:26 p.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published in early July.

Based off the name, one can guess that the decedent was Iranian/Persian in heritage.

* The ME/C belatedly updated the government’s database entry to reflect their determination that the decedent was of “Middle Eastern” origin.

There is a record in California state’s Missing Persons database of a Jamsheed “James” Shamloo whose last date of contact was January 15, 2023. The birth date matches the decedent’s.

Height: 5 feet, 10 inches. Weight: 185 pounds. Last seen wearing blue scrubs.

* There were two major cases against this doctor handled by the state’s Medical Board. In 2008, his Physician’s and Surgeon’s certificate was revoked but stayed, and he was placed on probation for two years and was forced to enroll in a clinical training program.
