Lesa Buchanan’s boyfriend was the 42 year old Plastic Surgeon from Nashville, Tennessee who on Friday March 25th, 2010 was rushed to the hospital in Chicago where he was later pronounced dead. News released on December 18th, 2010 said that his cause of death was a massive heart attack, you must remember that he was also the doctor who on July 4th, 2005 was charged with second-degree murder and reckless homicide, the charges on him were later switched to unlawful negligence and giving illegal drugs (Oxycodone, a powerful pain killer) to Lesa, these illegal drugs resulted in a lethal combination that ended with her young life. On September 28, 2007 he was sentenced to two years in jail for her death and ordered to pay a $500.00 bond to keep him out of jail until his appeal.
Lesa Renee Buchanan was 35 years old at the time of her death (on July 4th, 2005) she was born on June 29, 1970 to Peggy Roberts, she had a sister Tara Bentley. When Lesa was very young she got married to the father of her daughter Jesse who she later divorced. Her daughter was 14 at the time of Buchanan’s death, she is now 19.
Ever since she was a young teenager she dreamt about becoming an actress and a model. Those dreams remained in her heart on 2000 when she met the surgeon doctor who later became her doctor and eventually boyfriend, he once said he did a series of plastic surgeries on her such as:
“A re-do breast augmentation, her eyelids, forehead, lip augmentation, liposuction. Full face laser, Botox, collagen, the list goes on.”
Lesa was a caring, loving mother and totally adored children, a children’s book author, who also did many children’s puppet shows but her laughter and kindness were taken from the world.
She dated Koulis on and off for several years but her family soon realized he was not the right man for her, in 2002 a few years before her death her mother and a friend took her to a hospital after they found her highly intoxicated with drugs, had marks all over her body, arms, groin and feet. Once she was herself again she told them that the doctor allegedly injected her against her will to keep her calm and willing to sleep with him.
Those same activities were the ones Lesa did with him in the last days of her life when a home video showed her getting injected at least three times. She told him she was not feeling good, she was having arm and chest pains, to that allegations he said she later told him she was feeling better, so they continued their wild weekend that ended with Lesa Buchanan’s terrible death, that same weekend her family said she was going to put an end to that relationship, somehow her plans changed.
