-- An acclaimed trauma surgeon was found dead with a knife in his torso Sunday in his Park Avenue apartment in a suspected suicide, New York City police said.
Lorich was also a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College.
His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide, a New York Police Department official told ABC News.
Initial investigations did not find any signs of forced entry at his apartment, the official said. Authorities have not found a suicide note.
There are no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing, according to the NYPD.
The Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine released a statement of sympathy Sunday evening.
"Dr. Lorich was a distinguished orthopedic trauma surgeon and teacher serving at Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine. We mourn this tragic development and extend our deepest sympathies to Dr. Lorich's family, friends and patients," the statement said.
