Brunswick County District Attorneys Office is seeking extradition to transport the 29-year-old back to North Carolina.

Prosecutors first presented indictments against Sarah Cameron on Monday. After a Leland Police Department investigation, Cameron was charged in connection with the death of her patient, Bruce Harrelson. An autopsy found 66-year-old Harrelson died of an overdose.

Cameron was looking after Harrelson in his Leland home. At the time, he was diagnosed with Infantile Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriparesis, mixed athetosis, and congenital deformity of the hip, according to the Leland Police Department (LPD).

These conditions required a high level of care in order to function daily, according to LPD’s release Wednesday.

Arrested in Tampa, still employed

Cameron was arrested at 10 a.m. Wednesday by Tampa Police Department in Florida, according to Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office’s arrest record. U.S. Marshals Services assisted in making the arrest, according to the Leland Police Department.

She was arrested on a “fugitive warrant” according to the Florida arrest record.

LPD’s investigation culminated in charging Cameron with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of patient abuse and neglect, delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, delivery of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession with the intent to sell or deliver a schedule III controlled substance, a possession with the intent to sell or deliver a schedule IV controlled substance.

After being presented with the charges on Monday, a Brunswick County Grand Jury returned a true bill of indictment.
