COOPERSTOWN – The day before she died, Elizabeth Welsh Callahan was under “severe emotional distress” stemming from her marriage to Casey Callahan, her physician, Dr. Joan Bachorik, testified this morning in her husband’s murder trial resulting from her death at a truck stop in Pennsylvania in January 2000.

“I remember her because she was probably the most pathetic person I had ever seen in my office,” said Bachorik.

Records showed that the day before her death, Elizabeth had an appointment with Bachorik, during which the doctor offered to call the police on her behalf. “But she refused out of fear that he would kill her,” she said.
