This is one of those bizarre sad tales, how in the world would a doctor do this? The nurses were right on his trail too with noticing the watch being gone and reported to security. The doctor was caught on security cameras outside throwing the watch into a grassy area and the watch was found.
The doctor, 32-year-old Cleveland James Enmon of Hermosa Beach, Calif. is also facing grand theft charges in the case. It sounds like the evidence is pretty well lined up here with what has been disclosed in this article. This somewhat reminds me of one we had in Irvine a few years ago where a doctor left in the middle of surgery to run to the ATM machine, but the patient in that situation didn’t die. I wonder if this doctor may have been on drugs or something to behave so strangely too. Very sad for the family too when the doctor you count on to save a life is not there for you. BD
