A German nurse has been convicted for killing at least 106 patients out of “boredom”.
Investigators said Niels Hoegel (41), injected patients with lethal drugs and felt “euphoric” when he revived them. He claimed to be devastated when he failed.
Hoegel admitted to giving patients drugs that can cause heart failure or circulatory collapse, so he could then try to revive them and be hailed as a saviour. He was convicted in 2015 for murdering two intensive-care patients at Delmenhorst hospital near Bremen, but on Thursday, the on-going investigation revealed more details.
Hoegel isn’t the first medical practitioner to become a killer, there has been many cases earlier too.
As part of a wider investigation involving the hospitals he worked in, police and prosecutors reviewed more than 500 patient files and hundreds more hospital records. They also exhumed 134 bodies from 67 cemeteries, and questioned Hoegel six times. Police have said that if local health officials had not hesitated in alerting authorities, Hoegel could have been stopped earlier.
