Investigators are reaching out to the public for information about a hospice nurse impersonator who may have cared for Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown in her final days.
Police want to speak with patients who were under the care of Taiwo Sobamowo.
Police arrested Sobamowo in Raleigh, North Carolina on Sunday, and charged her with ID theft, forgery and impersonating a nurse.
She faked her way into the hospice by using the nursing license of a registered nurse whose name was similar to her own.
Sobamowo was a contract nurse hired by Homestead Hospice to work on a PRN (as needed) basis at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, GA., where Brown was a patient.
“We had no reason to believe that she was anything other than a good nurse with proper credentials,” said Homestead Hospice CEO Mallie Sharafat, who added that the company ran a background check on Sobamowo.
Brown died July 26, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell town home.
Sarafat said Sobamowo was fired on Aug. 5 after she failed to provide a current nursing license.
She worked at an assisted-living facility in Forsyth County as recently as October.
Sobamowo was extradited back to Forsyth on Wednesday morning. She is currently being held without bond. She faces additional charges of felony Financial Identity Fraud and felony Forgery, according to the AJC.
The Georgia Board of Nursing sent out an emergency alert to all hospitals and nursing facilities after her arrest.
