Murderabilia: Nurse Wants £10,000 For Harold Shipman’s Medical Examination Couch
PSST! Wannabe buy Dr Harold Shipman’s old medical examination couch? He was Britain’s most prolific serial killer, given 15 life sentences for the murders of as many as 215 patients.
Marjorie Chakravarti, 72, was a senior sister at the Abraham Ormerod Day Hospital, Todmorden where Shipman began his career as a GP and worked for seven years. She saw his old couch and bought it for £10.
And now she’s selling it on eBay. It’s yours for bids staring at £10,000.
An advertisement that has been published in two national and three local papers in an attempt to trace the relatives of more than 80 former patients of serial killer Harold Shipman. An inquiry, chaired by High Court judge Dame Janet Smith, is investigating the deaths of at least 466 patients of the former GP from Hyde, Greater Manchester, who is now serving life for the murders of 15 women patients. 6/9/2001
Mrs Chakravarti, who lives in Huddersfield, tells the MEN:
“My husband is ill, I am down-sizing. I have three sheds filled with rubbish and my intention is to sell it. To buy one of these new would cost around £770 and that’s without any history. It’s in reasonable condition for its age, I think it dates from the 1940s or 50s.”
That’s old enough for Shipman to inject with diamorphine and bury at the tip…
