(Independent) — A Florida doctor accused of raping patients while they were under sedation has been found dead, according to authorities. Eric Salata, 54, allegedly carried out sex acts on two patients at his practice, Pura Vida Medical Spa in Naples, Florida, after giving them painkillers, laughing gas and alcohol. His body was reportedly found in a ditch near his home during a welfare check that was carried out because his ankle monitor had not moved in eight hours.
