The federal authorities announced on Tuesday they were looking for an accomplice who, they said, had been involved in a pill scheme with a former doctor who worked at Yale-New Haven Hospital and allegedly imported drugs from the Dark Web.
In a recent indictment in recent days, 37-year-old Dr. Jennifer Farrell, a former second-year hospital and Fulbright scholar, was charged with 36 counts of drug trafficking outside the realm of professional practice and not for legitimate medical purposes.
Authorities also announced the indictment of her alleged accomplice, 30-year-old Jamisha McCoy of New Haven.
Federal authorities, including the FBI, launched an investigation into Farrell’s activities, claiming she admitted to receiving packages of oxycodone and fentanyl tablets online from an unnamed source on the so-called dark web.
Investigators claim that she also prescribed painkillers at least 35 times to the names of at least five patients, including McCoy, whom she did not examine using a loophole in Yale’s software that allowed her to write several fraudulent oxycodone recipes, according to federal court documents.
The 30-year-old McCoy from New Haven is now wanted by the federal authorities after she was indicted for accusing her of the same crimes as Farrell.
