NURSE MAY HAVE KILLED OVER 100, PROSECUTORS SAY
BERLIN A nurse who is already serving a life sentence for two murders may have killed more than 100 patients over several years at two hospitals in northwestern Germany, prosecutors said Thursday.
Investigators have completed toxicological examinations on patients who died during Niels Hoegel’s time as a nurse in Oldenburg and Delmenhorst.
They found a further 16 cases in which he is suspected.
In August, they said they had determined that he might have killed at least another 84 patients.
Toxicology results on another 41 fatalities have now been concluded.
