Cynthia Johnson said that after he lost his license, her ex-husband didn’t take care of himself, smoking and eating too much.

And investigators were closing in.

Federal agents were pursuing criminal charges for wire and health care fraud and a civil forfeiture of assets, Special Agent Kowalski said in his affidavit.

One person close to the case who asked not to be named said a federal grand jury had been called and Dr. Johnson was likely to be indicted.

But that didn’t happen. On March 5, he died of natural causes.
