Everyone talks about Elizabeth Holmes building up then bringing down Theranos but what about her other fraud half Ramesh aka "Sunny" Balwani?

The Wall St Journal did the most investigation into Theranos than any other news agency that I can find. Here is a link to their collection of articles on Theranos (not Balwani specifically but contains good investigative details about the company and its downfall)
