A former Director of Radiology at Community Hospital has been charged with fleecing his co-workers in a phony investment scam.
Billy Lynn Ferguson gained the confidence of physicians and staff who worked with him at the hospital.
Ferguson outlined several schemes: buying used X-ray film to reclaim the silver and hitting "hot" stocks on the "Kansas City stock market."
Though he paid out more than two million dollars to investors, the government says he used new money from one investor to pay the others. The scheme collapsed in 1990, and he eventually filed for bankruptcy protection.
The 54-year old Salem resident is expected to plead guilty.
