German male nurse suspected of killing at least 84 with lethal drugs

German authorities say Monday Aug. 28, 2017 they now believe that a nurse who was convicted of killing patients with overdoses of heart medication killed at least 84 people.

In 2015, Hoegel was sent to jail for two murders and the attempted murders of several intensive care patients at Delmenhorst hospital in Bremen, Germany.

Police said Monday that investigators exhuming and analysing more bodies had so far found evidence of "84 more murders", which would make him one of Germany's worst ever serial killers. The number of actual killings is likely higher because some possible victims were cremated, making it impossible to gather evidence, Kuehme added.

Speaking about the findings of the new investigations, Johann Kuehme, police chief in the city of Oldenburg said, "The insights we were able to gain are terrifying, they surpass what we could have imagined".

Schmidt said he was "speechless" about the crimes, which were committed randomly and against patients in critical condition.

They said he had utilized five unique medications on the patients, including alkaloid ajmaline and arrhythmia tranquilize sotalol, in the vicinity of 1999 and 2005. With sick patients, overdoses can lead to life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia and reduced blood pressure.

When the news hit the headlines, another woman approached the police with suspicions that her deceased mother was also murdered by Hoegel. "People at the clinic in Oldenburg knew of the abnormalities". In a three-year police investigation, it has become clear that the victims are at least four times more.

In January 2015, Hogel confessed to administering 90 unauthorized injections, of which 30 had been fatal because he had been unable to reanimate the patients. He said he felt euphoric when he managed to save a patient and felt devastated when he failed to do so.
