Fake nurse who treated Bobbi Kristina arrested in North Carolina

- Sheriff's officials in a Georgia county say a woman accused of posing as a nurse at the hospice where Bobbi Kristina Brown died has been transferred from a North Carolina detention center to a Georgia jail.

Forsyth County sheriff's Deputy Epifanio Rodriguez said Wednesday that Taiwo Sobamowo has been booked into the Forsyth County Jail north of Atlanta. Sobamowo was arrested Sunday in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Rodriguez said she was being held on three charges in his county: financial identity fraud and forgery, both felonies; and a misdemeanor count of practicing as a nurse without a license.

There was no immediate information on when she will face a judge.

Police say they want to hear from other patients at the metro Atlanta hospice who might have had contact with the woman accused of posing as a nurse while caring for Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Duluth police Capt. Mark Hunter said Wednesday that investigators want to talk to people who had loved ones or friends who were under the care of Taiwo Sobamowo. Police said Sobamowo impersonated a licensed nurse with a similar name and faces charges.

A police report says Sobamowo was in charge of caring for the 22-year-old daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth.

Bobby Kristina Brown died at the hospice July 26, six months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her townhome.
