Herbalist charged in death of diabetic boy treated with oils


A man who calls himself an herbalist is facing criminal charges in connection with the death of a 13-year-old boy under his care in Harbor Gateway.

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office charged Timothy Morrow, 83, with child endangerment and practicing medicine without a license.

Prosecutors say Morrow prescribed herbs in lieu of the insulin the boy’s pediatrician had prescribed, even when the boy became sick and semi-comatose due to complications from his Type-1 diabetes.
