The patient was described as a student with Western Connecticut State University. She said she was “drugged up and out of my mind” on drugs that Fox prescribed. The relations happened at his office, and a sailboat, authorities said. She had begun seeing the defendant as a patient in 2011, when she was 18, for depression and an eating disorder.
Fox, incidentally, was a doctor for 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who police say murdered 20 children, six adult staff members and his mother on Dec. 14, 2012. The shooter committed suicide.
State police detectives looked into him after the fact, and dug up allegations against Fox during interviews of the psychiatrists former patients.
The now-disgraced doctor reportedly told investigators that he had destroyed records about Lanza, but remembered him. Lanza, then 15, had “aggression problems,” and resisted “engagement.”
The Office of the Child Advocate, a state agency, determined that the shooter’s anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder didn’t cause the shooting.
Fox, 66, is scheduled to be sentenced July 10 for one count of second-degree sexual assault, according to The Connecticut Post. He broke a law prohibiting psychotherapists from having sexual relations with patients. The plea agreement calls for a seven-year suspended sentence in which the defendant would spend 18 months behind bars, and 10 years on probation.
...later surrendered his medical license and moved first to New Zealand and later Maine.
According to the investigative file, over the course of one year, Fox prescribed what the victim called a “dynamic cocktail of psychiatric drugs.” The “constantly changing mix” of psychiatric drugs included: Ativan (anxiety), Saphris (bi-polar disorder), Abilify (schizophrenia), Nuvigil (sleep apnea, narcolepsy), Prozac (Major-depression, OCD), Zyprexa (Schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder), Xanax, and Vistaril (anxiety, tension). Vistaril also is used as a sedative and for general anesthesia.
I thought doctors were supposed to keep records for almost 10 years and I would imagine that they would want to see the records soon after the shooting .
Maybe he destroyed them to hide what he was doing.
The State refuses to release Lanza’s mental health records or autopsy/toxicology results and Fox claims to have little memory of Lanza. Fox also claims to have destroyed his medical records prior to his 2012 departure to New Zealand. Apparently law enforcement never thought it important, at least, to review Fox’s billing records, which Fox claims still existed in December of 2012. So how about now? Has Fox retained the billing records of his patients and will law enforcement finally look at them?
This is an important question. When Fox surrendered his medical license in July 2012 he also agreed (as a condition of surrender) to adhere to the records retention laws of Connecticut (19a-14-44). Fox was required to retain all medical and billing records for patients up to seven years after the last date of “treatment.” If one accepts that Fox last saw Lanza in 2007, then Fox admits he destroyed Lanza’s “treatment” records two years too early. And, of course, one can only assume that the records of the alleged victim(s) of Fox’s reported sexual assault also have been destroyed.

So is it possible when Lanza was younger the psychiatrist drugged him up and sexually assaulted him and put the idea into his head that paedophilia was beneficial to both parties, which resulted in messing Lanza up even more, resulting in him killing adults that were maybe responsible for sending him to the psychiatrist and the children he now fantasised about due to the brainwashing of the psychiatrist, which deep down he knew was wrong and this was his way of stopping it all?
