Blue worked as a family doctor at the hospital while also serving as the Teton County Coroner.
“Unfortunately St. John Health had told me I cannot use my personal computer at work even though other doctors do plus it is critical for my Coroner responsibilities. They have essentially forced me to resign effective February 10 due to this prohibition,” he wrote on Facebook.
Blue said he legally could not trash the hospital but expressed his frustration with the decision. He said, “you would think with all the recent publicity, they would have been honored to be associated with me.”
Blue will remain on as coroner until his term ends in 2023.

The decision to force the doctor out of his role comes only days after he appeared on television to reveal Gabby's cause of death. He revealed she had been strangulated to death and determined her body had been inside Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park for three to four weeks.
Based on his calculations, Gabby's body would have been left in the park around the end of August/beginning of September. He decided not to put an exact date on her death certificate.
Gabby's family flew out to Wyoming last week to pick up the body and bring it back with them to New York
As we previously reported, Brian returned home from a two-month cross-country road trip on September 1. The only problem was his fiancée was not with him. He decided to hire a lawyer and refused to speak with the police. A couple of days later, Brian went missing after telling his parents he was going for a hike at the Carlton Reserve.
