Investigators had been eyeing doctor accused in sex-for-drugs trade for years
Medical license could be at risk
INDIANAPOLIS - Eye-opening revelations in a case involving a doctor who officials linked to the deaths of four patients and accused of exchanging prescription pills for sex could put his medical license at risk.
Court records the Call 6 Investigators obtained Monday linked Dr. Jeffrey Boone, of Noblesville, to four patient deaths from 2009 to 2012.
At least two women told investigators earlier this year that they had sex with Boone in exchange for medicine.
The Call 6 Investigators were at Boone's practice when the Drug Enforcement Administration and other law enforcement entities raided the office Aug. 8.
It is not clear why Boone still had his medical license, considering what regulators knew in 2006.
The Medical Licensing Board was aware of allegations that Boone overprescribed medicine and had sexual relations with patients seven years ago.
Investigators had also raised concerns that people with drug problems traveled to Noblesville because it was easy to get prescriptions.
Records indicated that patients traveled from Bloomington, Fort Wayne, Franklin, Monticello, Richmond, Rushville and Seymour to Boone's practice.
Several pharmacies in Madison and Hamilton counties stopped filling the prescriptions of Boone's patients.
