However, the patient wasn't fooled and filed a complaint against Becton. Police subsequently found multiple naked pictures of different women on Becton's phone, which would have been fine if it wasn't for the fact that they all appeared to have been taken in a gynecologist's office.

The world's most uncomfortable casting couch.
Becton pleaded guilty and has just been sentenced to 36 months in prison. He will also be registered as a sex offender and will no longer be allowed to practice, proving honesty does not beget rewards when you're a huge creep. Clearly, Becton could take a few pointers from Choy up there.
Fugitive Doctor Steals Patients' Money ... And Their Organs
If you wake up in Kosovo to find yourself all alone, with sloppy stitches and a missing kidney, you either took a wrong turn somewhere and wound up in an urban legend, or you're a patient at the Medicus Clinic. The clinic was run by Dr. Lutfi Dervishi, who employed several other doctors and his own son in a scheme to con patients out of organs and money.
And the signs looked so trustworthy.
The clinic would convince people who were down on their luck that they could give their organs to those in need and make some cash -- it was like donating blood, but much more painful and illegal. What they were actually doing was selling the "donated" organs on the black market, pocketing the cash, and abandoning the donors with little to no medical care. Police found records of every operation carried out, along with forms the donors had signed confirming the donations were for a "humanitarian" purpose -- which is debatable, since we're not entirely sure that the ones who benefited qualify as humans. According to the uncovered documents, 30 people were robbed of their innards in just one month, so essentially a person a day. Hopefully they could afford post-operation ice cream for everyone.
Though Dervishi was the head of the clinic, he was by no means the creepiest person involved in the organ-trafficking ring. That honor went to Dr. Yusuf Sonmez, a surgeon described by his peers as "accomplished but rebellious." Pro Tip: "Rebellious" isn't a quality to look for in your employees when their jobs involve holding knives.

"Scalpels? Where we're going, we don't need scalpels."
Sonmez had previously gotten into trouble for trafficking organs in Turkey before relocating his illegal activities to Kosovo. When police searched the clinic for evidence, they found boxes of medical tools with Sonmez's name written on them, because damn these guys were not good at keeping secrets.
While the rest of Sonmez's cronies were busy having the book thrown at them, Sonmez went on the lam, skipping not only the town but presumably the country, as officials believe the mad doctor to be somewhere in South Africa. The actual whereabouts of the man dubbed "The Vulture Doctor" are anybody's guess, but we're pretty sure Batman should start searching for a trail of bleeding, kidney-less South Africans.
