An oral surgeon and dentist, James Michael Ryan, has been arrested for allegedly supplying his drug-addicted girlfriend with ketamine and other drugs which led to her death after she overdosed.
The 48-year-old was charged with second-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Sarah Harris, after being apprehended on Tuesday.
According to the Montgomery County Department of Police, Harris, a former patient, began working at Ryan’s practice as a surgical technician in October 2020 and the two began a romantic relationship in January 2021.
At some point, she moved in with Ryan and he allegedly began feeding her controlled substances, including propofol, ketamine, diazepam and midazolam.
“I don’t think you’ll find a vein. I’m so dehydrated,” Harris texted Ryan on September 27, according to court documents obtained by the Washington Post.
Ryan allegedly instructed her to drink water and take a Xanax.
“Sarah Harris developed an ever-worsening addiction that was continuously fed over the months by Ryan,” investigators said.
Texts also show Harris admitting a ketamine overdose to a friend, according to the court document.
On January 26, 2022, Harris was found dead at Ryan’s home from a drug overdose.
