Police say Sobamowo, in charge of Bobbi Kristina Brown's care at the hospice where she died, was impersonating a nurse and faces charges that include identity fraud and nursing without a license. A Duluth police report obtained Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015, by The Associated Press states that detectives have documents showing Sobamowo cared for Brown at Peachtree Christian Hospice outside Atlanta.

North Carolina authorities last month arrested Taiwo Bolatito Sobamowo, who worked at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth at the time Bobbi Kristina was a patient there, acting on warrants from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office. 

“Sobamowo had provided fraudulent credentials under a different name to gain employment,” Forsyth officials said at the time.

Already facing similar charges in Duluth, in Gwinnett County, she now faces charges in Roswell.

“The Roswell Police Department is investigating a nurse who was practicing without a license in Roswell and other locations in Georgia,” the Roswell Police Department said in a statement.

“She applied for the position of a clinical manager and was hired by Homestead Hospice, located in Roswell, GA. Four warrants were signed by a judge on December 1, 2015, for Taiwo Sobamowo, age 32, from Buford, GA. Sombamowo will be charged with the following: Identity Fraud, Forgery 1st Degree,Theft by Deception, and Practicing as a Professional Registered Nurse without a License.”

Sombamowo has a criminal history and had used false credentials to land prior nursing jobs, the AJC’s Craig Schneider and Steve Visser recently reported.

Bobbi Kristina died in July after months of hospitalization, then hospice care.
