Bronx Hospital worker Anthony Iuso, 44, was found dead inside a bathroom days after he went to the emergency room to get treated for an injured finger, sources said. Iuso was found locked inside a bathroom at Montefiore Medical Center where he worked.
Last Thursday, Iuso left his post on the third floor of the hospital to get a finger treated in the emergency room at around 1 p.m. After he was treated, he went back to the third floor, where he usually cleaned the operations room, to use the bathroom. It was the last time anyone saw him, his brother, Thomas, told reporters.
Iuso’s family made several attempts to contact their family member, including reaching out to the hospital. The family went to the hospital on Monday morning and asked to look at surveillance video. That’s when the hospital staffers discovered that Iuso was in the bathroom.
Thomas told reporters that the hospital had given the family very odd and suspicious information. “It doesn’t make sense why professionals would be acting this way,” he said.
It is unclear what happened inside the bathroom once Anthony was locked inside or how and when he died. He had no medical or mental health issues, his family said.
The police investigation is ongoing.
