Mauriello likens the widespread, complex investigation into Dr. Levy–involving issues of trust and a powerful institution–to that of former Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky and the Catholic sex abuse scandal.
“It’s a question of what was reported and what wasn’t reported, and you never really know what that was,” he said.
Hopkins says it acted quickly after a co-worker discovered a camera pen around Levy’s neck. They cut off Levy’s contact with patients. Now police are combing through computers seized from the home where he killed himself just weeks later.
“A person doesn’t engage in the activity that doctor was engaged in and walk in every day and appear and act completely normal. There’s always that something,” said Mauriello. “At this point, they’re going to have to evaluate everything they have.”
Federal investigators are assisting city police who have received calls from more than 2,000 patients.
The designated police hotline is 410-396-2269. Police say all information is confidential.
