Stockport ‘Serial’ Killer Targets Dying

by | 16th, July 2011

A KILLER is on the loose in British hospitals. No. Not MRSA. This killer is human in its outward appearance. As the papers scream from their front pages:

SERIAL KILLER LOOSE IN HOSPITAL – Daily Mirror

HOSPITAL MURDERER TRIES TO MURDER 36Daily Mail

The Mail tells us of goings on at Stockport’s Stepping Hill Hospital:

A hospital poisoner who has killed three patients was trying to murder dozens more. The saboteur injected insulin into at least 36 vials of saline solution, knowing it could be fatal.

Any more facts?

Detectives believe insulin was deliberately injected into the saline containers which were in a store room used by at least two wards. Fourteen patients fell ill after nurses administered the contaminated fluid through drips.

Believe? What happened top a mass murderer killing 36 people?

The poisoner’s first two victims – a 71-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman who had multiple sclerosis – are believed to have been terminally ill.

Two very ill people are dead. What else?

It is understood the latest, an 84-year-old man who died yesterday, was not.

An elderly man in hospital for his and let us be presumptuous ill health has died.

Nurses and other medics who were working on the wards are being spoken to by officers because they would have had the expertise and opportunity to tamper with the glass vials.

Might anyone else have had the expertise to tamper with the glass vials? Yes. Maybe a visitor did it? Maybe they were tampered with at source? Maybe they are a faulty batch? Maybe there is no serial killer…

The other 11 victims are recovering.

The source of the story is Assistant Chief Constable Terry Sweeney of Greater Manchester Police (pictured), who tells a press conference:

“We have someone deliberately contaminating saline in the one place that people should feel they are being most cared for. We will be planning to take the person responsible for this contamination into custody and bring them to justice.”

Good plan, copper. You. Must. Catch. The. Killer!
