Twisted Tale Of Murder & Embezzlement Stay Restitution Order For North Carolina Health Concern

From the Winston-Salem Journal on 1/13/14:

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center won’t be getting its $114,000 in restitution anytime soon from a Forsyth County man accused of embezzling from the hospital and killing his partner.

Last month, Judge David Hall of Forsyth Superior Court signed an order staying all civil proceedings involving the lawsuit that Baptist filed against Steven Byron Tisdale until Tisdale’s criminal case is resolved.
Tisdale., the former manager of the commercial-insurance collection division for Baptist, is accused of embezzling more than $100,000 from Baptist by cashing 219 refund checks between Jan. 1, 2011, and April 1, 2012. Baptist had to reissue the 219 refund checks.

Tisdale had agreed to pay $114,000 in restitution to the hospital as part of a plea agreement, but he skipped his hearing in February 2013 in Forsyth Superior Court and was later charged with first-degree murder in the death of his partner, Robert Bowie Tisdale. Robert Tisdale’s body was found in the couple’s house in Pfafftown.
