TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) A local doctor took his own life while facing allegations he took pictures and videotaped his patients without their knowledge. Police searching his home say they found an extraordinary amount of evidence.
Meghan McCorkell spoke with a patient whos worried shes a victim, too.
Baltimore City police say theyve contacted some of the victims but say the numbers coming forward could be huge.
Police say Dr. Nikita Levya former OB/GYN at Johns Hopkinstook his own life inside his Towson home. Its the same house where Baltimore City police served a search warrant. Inside they say they found extensive evidence that Levy videotaped and took photos of his patients without their knowledge.
Its disgusting that youve got to trust these people and you cant trust him, said Tasha Bynam.
Bynam was a patient of Dr. Levys and received a letter saying hed left the facility but didnt say why.
I thought maybe hed moved on, got promoted or something, she said.
Hospital security was alerted on Feb. 4 by another staff member that Levy was using personal video equipment to tape his patients. Police are now trying to determine if others were involved.
A spokesperson for Johns Hopkins says Levy was let go from the staff earlier this month.
Police believe there were a large number of victims. Levy saw around 1,000 patients since getting his medical license in 1988.
And of course the pictures he took will be found on a Facebook page.
I expect to see and hear lots of these types of stories from public schools and Hollyweird
