STAMFORD — A former hospital official facing charges he forcibly administered enemas and secretly photographed a dozen victims has been found dead.

Barry Barkinsky, 62, of Stamford died from an apparent suicide at home. His body was discovered by Stamford police Monday, the station said.

Barkinsky, an instructor and emergency manager at Bridgeport Hospital, had faced four counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and 10 counts of voyeurism.

Bridgeport police allege Barkinsky performed the unapproved enemas on students while working at the hospital’s nursing school and took thousands of pictures of about a dozen male victims.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier this month.

Barkinsky had been released on bond and was set to appear in court in late July.
