Dr. Finnegan in 1964
|Episode||The Good-Bye Room|
Dr. Finnegan was a doctor employed to examine and treat pregnant teens at St. Mary's Home For Unwed Mothers in the 1960's.
A known drinker, Finnegan's performance as a doctor was abysmal; six women bled to death on his delivery table between 1961 and 1968, before the Medical Board finally revoked his medical license. Sister Margaret, who ran the home would later say that St. Mary's resources were limited and Finnegan's price fit their budget.
After years of drinking, Finnegan died from cirrhosis of the liver in 1975. When Hilary's case was reopened in 2007, detectives, upon learning of Finnegan's reputation, suspected that Hillary might have died on his watch and that St. Mary's coverd it up. In the end, however, this proved not to be the case.
