Accused Ohio pill mill doctor died of overdose



Published: Thu, November 8, 2012 @ 11:28 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Autopsy results show that a doctor who died weeks before his trial on charges of participating in what authorities alleged was a notorious pill mill in southern Ohio committed suicide by a drug overdose.

The report obtained by The Associated Press indicates that Dr. Victor Georgescu died Aug. 4 from a toxic combination of vodka and sleeping pills.

Greater Medical Advance was the last pain clinic in Scioto County before it was shut down last year.

George Adkins, its owner and Georgescu’s employer, is serving a 10-year prison term for illegal drug distribution after his conviction in September.

Georgescu was scheduled for a trial on charges of engaging in corrupt activity, conspiracy to engage in corrupt activity, funding drug trafficking and permitting drug abuse.
