The Angel Of Death (True Crime Documentary) | Real Stories

An alarming number of deaths occurring in the Intensive Care Unit of a California hospital had staff members highly concerned. Hospital staffers suspected one of the respiratory therapists was up to something. Rumor’s surfaced of a “magic syringe” used by the therapist, possibly to administer poison to kill patients in the hospital.

When drugs were found in the therapist’s possession, investigators brought him in for questioning, at which time he admitted to killing hundreds of people. Without corroborating evidence, however, authorities would have to let him go.

Forensic scientists were brought in to develop a method of detecting the suspected poisons in the bodies of past victims. When poison was detected in several bodies exhumed by authorities, the respiratory therapist called “the angel of death” would finally be convicted.

  27. Mariah MichellBeautyWednes says:

    Efen Saldivar,the human with the secret of evils mind. Become serial killer to the innocent patients at the hospital,so sad & scary. There was satan work at the hospital ready to kill every patients with his silent killer. Crazy. One of the nurse had been notice Efen Salvidar color and why she didn't report to the medical officers? Thank God the police got him.

  28. Zenas La Rosa says:

    Restraining patients is bad practice, very very bad.

  29. Willow says:

    Any Nurse who suspected anything this man was doing should have reported immediately to their managers, and if nothing done then work their way up the chain of command! That’s why they have a chain of command. As a Nurse I feel really angry about this and I hope those who didn’t needed fired, snd that the hospital lost their shirts in court! That could be someone I love.

    If he did it because if 'workload', he wouldn't be killing people that were set to be released early or that only had a couple of days left in hospital or that got a lot better from being very sick. He would only be killing people that were known to be on death's door, that had no great chance of improving, people that were on life support to be switched off soon or almost definitely.

    He did it for power and probably because he got a sick thrill from watching them die, sometimes slowly.

  32. Monty Wormald says:

  36. Ellen Knell says:

    It's funny that during most interrogations all the detective needs is a confession too the murder after a suspects is brought in, but here the murderer confesses, but its not enough to convict him…..odd!
