LOS ANGELES (KNX 1070) — The case of Dr. Ehab Mohamed — who first came under fire after a series of investigative reports by KNX 1070 — has taken a very dark and tragic turn: one of his patients has died.

Dr. Ehab Mohamed, an Encino-based OB/GYN, was charging as much as $650,000 for some procedures, yet allegedly lying about his credentials.

Now, a wrongful death suit has been filed and the LAPD thinks a crime may have committed after 61-year-old Sharon Carpenter Nicholson died on Mohamed’s operating table. Carpenter had undergone a $100,000, day-long liposuction procedure.
