BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say more than 2,000 patients and former patients have contacted investigators looking into secret recordings made by a gynecologist.

Dr. Nikita Levy was fired and later killed himself after the recording allegations surfaced. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (goog-lee-EL-mee) said Tuesday that investigators have started contacting patients. However, he said the investigation will be a lengthy and slow process.

Police have said the Johns Hopkins doctor used a pen camera to make some of the recordings and computer servers were found at his Towson home. Guglielmi says police are investigating whether the images were posted to the internet but would not say whether investigators have found if that happened.

The case has also prompted a class action suit against Johns Hopkins Hospital and a clinic where Levy worked.
