LARGO -- A plastic surgeon with offices in Miami and the Tampa Bay area is facing a first-degree murder charge in connection with the murder of a lawyer taking part in a lawsuit against him.
Police searched Dr. Tomasz Kosowski's home on a warrant and arrested him Saturday at a traffic stop, taking him to the Pinellas County Jail. He is due for a first appearance today (Monday).
Not much has been released about the case, but Largo detectives say victim Steven Cozzi left his office at 1501 South Belcher Road last Tuesday (21st), leaving behind his wallet, car, keys and cellphone. Detectives found blood in the office bathroom and a strong chemical odor. Cozzi's body has not been located.
Cozzi's firm, Blanchard Law, was representing defendants in a lawsuit filed by Kosowski accusing a former employer of negligence, breach of contract, and fraud.
Kosowski's primary office is at Xiluet Plastic Surgery on SW 8th Street in Miami.
