    Death Toll for German Serial Killer Nurse Goes Up, Another 97 Victims Suspected

    "...Högel was sentenced to life in prison in 2015 on two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder. But during his trial, he confessed to killing many others.

    He admitted to injecting 90 of his patients with a lethal cocktail of drugs in order to induce heart failure or circulatory collapse so he could try to revive them. Högel believed bringing dying patients back from the brink of death would help him shine as a hero and garner respect from his peers and superiors.

    The New York Times reported Högel said he acted "out of boredom" and Reuters added that he described feeling euphoric after bringing someone back to life, although he often failed..."

    German prosecutors have attributed one more murder to a former nurse accused of killing dozens of patients at two hospitals, bringing to 98 the number of slayings he is expected to face trial for later this year.

    Niels Hoegel is already serving a life sentence for two murders. He was charged earlier this year with killing 97 more patients over several years at the hospitals in northwestern Germany. His trial is scheduled to open Oct. 30 in Oldenburg.

    A former nurse has admitted to killing 100 patients in his care, on the first day of his trial in the biggest serial killing case in Germany’s post-war history.

    Niels Hoegel, 41, has already spent nearly a decade in prison on a life term for other patient deaths. He is accused of intentionally administering medical overdoses to victims so he could bring them back to life at the last moment.

    German ex-nurse convicted of killing 85 patients

    He was convicted of 85 murders. Who knows how many almost died but he managed to resuscitate, and how many died but the murders can't be proven. Clearly he got a thrill from being a hero when he saved someone.

    German Nurse Who Killed At Least 85 Patients Gets Life in Prison
    It is believed Niels Högel killed as many as 300 of his patients


    June 06, 2019

    "...CNN reports that Niels Högel, 42, a former nurse believed to be Germany’s deadliest post-war serial killer, received his sentence inside the District Court of Oldenburg.

    Sentencing Judge Sebastian Buehrmann called Högel’s crimes “incomprehensible,” according to CNN....

    On Wednesday, Högel asked that his victims’ families forgive his “horrible acts,” CNN reports.

    Judge Buehrmann chastised Högel’s co-workers — some of whom suspected he was up to no good.

    Buehrmann said Högel’s colleagues experienced a “collective amnesia.”"
