Authorities claim that Dr Kosowski and Cozzi had a business disagreement before Cozzi disappeared. NBC Miami reports that even though Steven Cozzi’s body has not been discovered, detectives have said they have strong proof that Dr Tomasz Kosowski killed him. 

In addition to finding copious amounts of blood in his bathroom, investigators also found Cozzi’s phone, wallet, and keys in his law office.

Supposedly, Dr Tomasz Kosowski was present in the office when witnesses reported seeing a suspicious figure there, according to the authorities. Investigators said that after examining the plastic surgeon’s home, they discovered evidence that made them think he was the main suspect in the murder. Meanwhile, the nature of the evidence is still a mystery.

Dispute Over Insurance Billings

A disagreement about insurance billings may have been the driving force behind the alleged murder of Steven Cozzi.

In 2016, Dr Kosowski sued his former employer and co-workers at the Laufer Institute of Plastic Surgery, and the lawyer’s firm represented them.

His lawsuit says that a woman working at the institute failed to submit claims for his insurance billings, which resulted in online criticism of him. He said that the inappropriate behaviour had actually ruined his career.

The 44-year-old Dr Kosowski opened his own practice in 2018. The Daily Beast reports that although Steven Cozzi works for the law firm involved in the lawsuit, Blanchard Law, it is not yet known whether he was personally involved in representing Laufer Institute. He was last seen at the Blanchard Law Office on Tuesday.
