Police: Youngstown surgeon committed suicide after child porn charges

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A former surgeon in the Mahoning Valley has died after being arrested last week on charges of child pornography.

Police said Fred Koenig committed suicide with a knife at his home in Naples, Florida.

Koenig used to be a cardiac surgeon with Youngstown Heart Surgeons.

A clerk at Costco called police earlier this month, saying Koenig had printed objectionable photos.

He was arrested in the store parking lot for possessing photos of sexual performance of a child.
