The federal government has filed paperwork to seize all property owned by the woman behind Camelot Cancer Care.

The clinic's owner, Maureen Long, is accused of using drugs to treat cancer patients that were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration

Long also is now considered a fugitive.

Camelot Cancer Care shut down two years ago... lawsuits have been stacking up against Maureen Long.

A status report by the federal government says Long fled to Mexico to avoid arrest.

A federal complaint against the clinic and Long says the drug she used to treat patients is commonly used as an industrial solvent and is a by-product of making paper.

After the clinic was closed, investigators say Long continued working, mixing up the drug in her basement and then administering it in Tulsa hotel rooms.

One of her patients, 71-year-old Karin Kloeckner, died last year of septic shock and kidney failure.

The Medical Examiner's report said her death was brought on by liver cancer which was worsened by Long's treatment.

The forfeiture filed by the feds lists two homes and a lot, as well as money the government seized early in the investigation from Long's bank accounts -- more than $1.4 million in assets.

Long's website says Camelot Cancer Care has moved to Mexico -- and addresses the allegations.

Coming up tonight at 6 -- we'll talk more about that -- and take a look back at the only interview Long has given since Camelot was shut down.
