UAB Doctor Killed in Alleged Attack

Little is known -- publicly -- about the death of a UAB doctor.   Bill O'Byrne, 54, died while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Friends say he was severely beaten and left for dead in a ditch.   That claim has not been confirmed by  authorities.   O'Byrne was taken to a hospital in Mexico, and transferred to UAB, where he was pronounced dead this week.   UAB declined comment, at the request of the family.   The U.S. State Department last month issued a travel advisory, warning American tourists that violent crime is widespread in Mexico.
