    Dr. Bradley Marshall, M.D.        |        Character In-Depth History
    A native of River's Edge, Bradley Marshall has been a pillar of the community for many years. The son of the late Jake
    Marshall a factory worker and Maxine a Communications professor at a community college in Miami, Florida. Bradley
    grew up as an only child.

    A classmate of Andrew Bradshaw, Natasha Garrett Bradshaw and Jillian Malone was the high school sweetheart of
    Leslie Bradshaw. When he left for college in the summer of 1983 they agreed to end their relationship. That summer
    Bradley moved to Waco, Texas where he attended Baylor University. His first week on campus changed Bradley's life
    forever when he met Dallas native Valerie Caldwell who was also a freshman at the university. They began to see one
    another and in October 1983 the couple learned that Valerie was pregnant. Bradley married Valerie in New Orleans on
    December 23, 1983. The next July their first son, Jason Tyler, was born. Bradley became a father for a second time in
    January 1985 when Joshua Ray was born three months premature. Both Bradley and Valerie struggled in the early
    years of their marriage and learned to balance their education with their children's lives. Had it not been for the Valerie's
    mother Lillian Ann Caldwell the couple would not have made it. Bradley returned to River's Edge in 1990 to complete his
    residency.

    Bradley and Valerie made their home in River's Edge after his residency. Bradley became an ER Attending at St. John's
    following his residency and tenure as Chief Resident. In 2000 he was promoted to Chief of Staff of the hospital. Valerie
    was a partner with Andrew Bradshaw. Their eldest son Jason was popular in high school and many believed he would
    marry his high school sweetheart, Jodi Bradshaw. Life for the Marshall family was anything but scandalous until one day
    when it was.

    In August 2001, months shy of their eighteenth anniversary Bradley was dealt a horrible shock when he learned that his
    wife had been having an affair with Andrew Bradshaw. Humiliated by her actions, Bradley filed for divorce and his picture
    perfect life crashed down around him. The affair not only had an impact on his life, but that of his children. Jason ended
    his relationship with Jodi and left River's Edge for early enrollment at the University of Oklahoma. Josh ran away to be
    with best friend April Bradshaw after her grandmother forced her out of town for getting pregnant.

    Valerie reached out to her husband after she learned he had filed for divorce and attempted to reconcile with him.
    Valerie pleaded with Bradley to meet her at Stewart Lighthouse on the edge of the Brazos River with hopes of repairing
    their broken marriage. An overworked Bradley fell asleep and missed his appointment with Valerie. When he arrived
    hours later she was nowhere to be found and wasn't answering her cell phone. Unknown to Bradley at the time Valerie
    had drove her SUV into the river when he didn't arrive. Lillian Ann Caldwell arrived in River's Edge while the police
    searched for Valerie. However they were only able to recover the vehicle from the river. Bradley was forced to accept the
    facts that Valerie was dead. Once the police suspended the search for his ex-wife Bradley had her declared legally dead.

    During the search for Valerie, Bradley had turned to former high school sweetheart Leslie Bradshaw who had returned
    to town. Valerie's sister, Victoria who had always had a secret crush on her brother-in-law became intensely jealous of
    Leslie's presence.

    Leslie's presence.

    When Bradley least expected it to happen - Jillian Malone a former classmate at River's Edge High School and
    President of Southern Texas University returned to town and immediately stole Bradley's heart.

    Bradley was drawn almost immediately to the sexy and sultry Jillian Malone. He thought them both to be kindred spirits
    and he knew that a relationship with Jillian would be very different from the ones he had with Valerie and Natasha.
    Bradley's mother who had come to River's Edge for an extended visit also fell in love with Jillian. The couple exchanged
    wedding vows at the stroke of midnight New Years 2003, much to the dismay of his recently returned son Josh.

    Their marriage remained stable for a year and half until Jillian was attacked in her home. Bradley became distraught
    when she insisted that her attacker was none other than his presumed dead ex-wife Valerie. Bradley feared for Jillian's
    mental stability checked her into mental institution for observations. After weeks of observations and Jillian insisted it
    was Valerie he learned she had not been lying. Valerie kidnapped Jillian and lured Bradley to a restaurant where they
    celebrated their 2000 anniversary. Valerie blasted Bradley for leaving her and marrying another woman. As he tried to
    reason with his ex-wife Jillian arrived with Jodi Bradshaw Hayes and their arrival spooked Valerie. Fearing for Jillian's
    safety he ordered her not to approach them, but Jillian was determined to not lose another man she loved. Bradley
    watched as the women struggled and within seconds Valerie slung Jillian over the stairs and to her death. Bradley
    reacted quickly and convinced both Jodi and Valerie to say Jillian fell by accident. Bradley later revealed to Jodi that he
    covered up Valerie's role in Jillian's death for Jason and Josh.

    Bradley threw himself into his work at the hospital after he buried his wife and in late December 2004 the hospital board
    asked him to focus his efforts as Chief of Emergency Medicine. He accepted the offer and remained in that position for
    five years. During Hurricane Ike in 2008 while he worked triage Bradley ordered an overdose of a medication that was
    administered by his order to a nine year old boy. The child who was also allergic to the medicine began to seize and
    died. The parents of the child filed a wrongful death suite against Bradley and St. John's Hospital that would later be
    settled out of court. Although the hospital board stood behind Bradley the guilt of killing his first child in twenty years of
    practicing medicine ate away at him and he resigned his position.

    Bradley is currently unemployed. His friendship with Brittany O'Keefe Pierce remains intact and he has been assisting
    her in her efforts to have a child with her husband.
