The Angel of Death
A former Boy Scout, Rich always wanted to be the hero. That's why this portly
nurse pumped muscle paralyzer and other dangerous drugs into the intravenous
bottles of his patients in the emergency room of the Good Samaritan Hospital in
Long Island, NY.
On October 11, 1987 his gig ran afoul when he told a patient, "I'm going to make you feel better," and injected Pavulon in his intravenous tube. Immediately the man felt numbness and had difficulty breathing. However, he was able to buzz another nurse who saved his life.
The next day Richard's locker and home were searched and his killing utensils were found. Ever since Angelo started working the graveyard shift in the Good Samaritan there had been thirty-seven "Code Blue" emergencies leaving twenty-five patients dead. Prosecutors have only charged Angelo with ten of the deaths.
