    Chaz Higgs is probably who you're talking about. I've read the book about it called Poisoned Love. He was also suspected of murdering his wife's deceased husband while caring for him in the hospital but it has since been proven that he died from natural causes.

    I have always been fascinated by Genene Jones. If only the first hospital had taken more action!The deaths at Sick Kids in Toronto is also fascinating as they never found a guilty person. Susan Nelles was accused but found innocent.

    I seem to recall a story recently where a LVN in TX killed a woman in a parking lot and stole her baby.
    How can a nurse do this. Killed the mom and stole her baby. She definitely needs help!

    This is an interesting article. I do believe that forums should be balanced because life is not all about positve, we also have to learn some negative things so that we will know how to make it in a positive light.
