NIH Scientist Accused of Sex Abuse
Nobel Peace Prize winner and National Institutes of Health Scientist Daniel Carleton Gajdusek was arrested Thursday (4-4) on charges of sexual abuse. Gajdusek has allegedly brought minors from Micronesia and New Guinea to the United States and was charged for child abuse and perverted practices. In February, one college student who, at age 13, came to live with Gajdusek began cooperating with federal authorities who had started their investigation into the matter last year.
