Ronald E. Urry died in October 1998.

Pamela Urry, Bury (a U. nurse), and Engleberg have not returned requests for comment from The Tribune. McDonald died in 2011. A call to a number associated with Smith was not returned. Then-U. doctor Richard Middleton has declined comment, citing the U.’s ongoing investigation. Middleton previously expressed to Tribune newsgathering partner KUTV that he felt Lippert was "very strange" and told Urry of his concerns. Bruce Cohne said that due to massive heart attacks and old age, he cannot remember much about the company and its relationship to the U.

The University of Utah has set up a hotline for concerned clients at 801-587-5852 and can also be reached by email at andrology@hsc.utah.edu.

For those uncomfortable involving the U.,the San Antonio couple involved in the U.’s investigation may also be reached through the website "Was Your Child Fathered by Thomas Lippert?"

Current U. Andrology head Douglas Carrell, who was listed as an administrator for the Community Laboratory while Lippert worked there, did not return a request for comment for this story.
