A gynecologist who was recently fired for secretly filming his female patients was found dead in his Maryland home after committing suicide.
Dr Nikita Levy, who worked at Johns Hopkins Hospital for two decades up until last week, is suspected of covertly taking pictures and shooting videos of his exposed patients.
Levy was found dead by police who arrived at his Towson home at 7am on Monday morning in a suspected suicide. They would not reveal his cause of death except to say that neither a gun or knife was used.
The 54-year-old doctor had not been charged with any crime, but his lawyer confirmed that he was representing Levy at the time of his death.
Levy had worked as a doctor at the prestigious school’s East Baltimore Medical Center in their gynecology and obstetrics department.
His trove of patients received a letter last week notifying them that he would no longer be working at the practice, but many are infuriated by the fact that a key piece of information was left out.
The letter did not mention anything about the allegations against him, leaving out the fact that a co-worker discovered that the doctor was using personal recording devices to capture his patients in their most vulnerable moments.
