BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A former Bridgeport Hospital manager accused of sexual assault and voyeurism charges was found dead at his Stamford home on June 27 of an apparent suicide, according to the Connecticut Post.
Barry Barkinsky, 62, was found dead when police were asked to perform a welfare check because he hadn't been seen or heard from in a couple of days, the Connecticut Post reported. Stamford police, who found a suicide note, believe he died by grinding up a mixture of prescription pills and liquor, said the Connecticut Post.
Barkinsky, the former emergency manager at Bridgeport Hospital and a teacher at the hospital's nursing school, was accused of forcibly performing enemas on several men and secretly photographing at least a dozen others, according to the Connecticut Post. He pleaded not guilty to the charges when he was arraigned in Bridgeport Superior Court on April 19, added the Connecticut Post.
