Death

Dr. Kermit Gosnell

Abortion Doctor Delivered 7 Babies Alive, Then Murdered Them With Scissors

Despicable is too kind a word to describe Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Some called him a cold-blooded killer. The state of Pennsylvania agreed with that description when they convicted the doctor on 3 counts of first-degree murder for slaughtering newborn babies and for the death of a woman who overdosed on painkillers following her abortion while under Gosnell’s care.

Dying From a Food Allergy

Dying From a Food Allergy is Less Likely Than Being Murdered

A person with a food allergy is more likely to be murdered than to die from a severe reaction, according to a new study.

One in 10 children has a food allergy. Many sufferers and their parents experience anxiety about the possibility of a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, but until now no studies have estimated how common death from such reactions is.

Dr. Max Jacobson

The Secret Service Gave Him the Code Name “Dr. Feelgood”

Dr. Max Jacobson fled Nazi Berlin in 1936 and set up a medical practice in New York on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The location couldn’t have been more perfect. He catered to high-profile clients, including writers, musicians, entertainers, and powerful politicians. His rich and famous patients dubbed him “Miracle Max.” The Secret Service code named him “Dr. Feelgood” because of his unorthodox medical treatments for President John F. Kennedy.

Dr. Michael Mastromarino

Michael Mastromarino: The Organ Grinder

Biomedical Tissue Services was his company’s name; being a modern-day grave robber was more his game. Dr. Michael Mastromarino was a successful oral surgeon with a practice in New Jersey. He had a beautiful home, a wife, and 2 sons. He coauthored a prominent book on dental implants, Smile: How Dental Implants Can Transform Your Life. He was highly regarded in his field. How did this seemingly successful man later become known as the Organ Grinder and the Brooklyn Bone Snatcher?

Dr. Charles Cullen

Charles Cullen, The Killer Nurse: A Deeper Evil

After midnight, near the end of a 7-hour-long police interrogation that began on December 14, 2003, Charles Cullen said, “I did not want (people) to see me as this, what I am.” Somerset County detective Timothy Braun then asked him, “What are you, Charles?” The 43-year-old nurse replied, “A man, person, who was trusted and had responsibility for a lot of people dying…I hate myself for it ’cause I don’t believe I had the right, but I couldn’t stop, I couldn’t.” No, he couldn’t, and incredibly, neither could the medical establishment stop his reign of terror at the time.

Meet Kristen Heather Gilbert, a smart, accomplished RN, but a troubled soul.

In her youth, Kristen Strickland was known as a pathological liar. According to friends and neighbors, she often made the unfounded claim that she was a distant relative of the infamous ax murderer Lizzie Borden. Ex-boyfriends described Kristen as strange and controlling, eventually exhibiting a pattern of verbal and physical abuse toward them. For attention, she would fake suicide attempts, or when angry, she would tamper with her boyfriends’ cars or physically attack them, scratching them with her nails.

Harold Shipman

Harold Frederick Shipman was one of the most prolific serial killers the world has ever known, and the only doctor in the UK to ever be found guilty of killing patients. The son of a lorry driver, he was born in Nottingham, England, in 1946. Shipman was very close to his mother, who died of lung cancer when he was 17 years old. In the latter stages of her disease, a doctor would administer morphine to her at home. Eerily, his mother’s death occurred in a manner that was similar to what Shipman would later use in many of his murders.
