Bezerra was surprised to learn that he had been recorded assaulting the patient. The police are trying to find other possible victims of the anesthesiologist.
Barbara Lomb, from the local police station, told Globo, "The same nursing team, which did a brilliant job, worthy of all praise, also collected vials of substances that were given to the victim, possibly for the crime to be committed. I had never seen anything like it. We have 21 years of experience in the police, used to atrocities, all kinds of violence."
