    I read "The Good Nurse," a book written about Cullen by a former med student. It was well-written. It made me mad that all those hospitals turned a blind eye.

    Gary Heidnik was a serial killer in Philly. He lured women into his home, killed them, cut them up and stored them in his freezers. He was an LPN. I remember the PA BON newsletter that listed his license revocation.
    When I went to PN school, the instructors told us all about Gary Heidnick (even though I remember hearing about it on the news). He was a LPN, and the school was located 2 blocks near the "torture" house where the found a few women alive that he planned to kill...creepy!

    I remember when Cullen was caught and reading the BON newsletter when they revoked his license.

    Wow, I've read about Heidnik but somehow missed the part about him being a nurse.
    His crimes were horrendous.
    I didn't realize he was a nurse, either. I still can't believe it took him that long to get caught.

    Lucky for you he was gone by the time you were in school! I can still remember watching the news at night and his story being one of the lead stories.
