(Examiner, The (Washington, DC) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Doctor apparently kills self; was under investigation
A former Johns Hopkins University gynecologist who lost his job after he was accused of photographing his patients illegally was found dead Monday morning in an apparent suicide.
Nikita Levy was discovered in his Baltimore County home at 7:14 a.m. Monday, according to county police.
Johns Hopkins received reports two weeks ago that Levy was illegally photographing his patients and possibly others with his personal photo and video equipment. The university reported the findings to the Baltimore City Police Department and ended Levy's employment Feb. 8, offering him counseling services, according to university spokeswoman Kim Hoppe.
Johns Hopkins and the police will continue to investigate.
