“A special agent with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Inspector General says there are at least two more suspicious deaths at Lexington’s Veterans Affairs Medical Center.”

“Those details emerged Thursday during Rick Ellison’s testimony at a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Lexington for Maria K. Whitt, a former nurse that has been charged in the death three years ago of a 90-year-old World War II veteran who was at the hospital off Cooper Drive.”

“Ellison was asked whether there were any other questionable deaths at the hospital.”

“There are two, at least two,” he said.

The special agent, who is based in Nashville, said there was an 88-year-old man with heart problems, and a 60-year-old man who had a massive heart attack. Both died after they were given morphine.”A
