The Nakhla Meteorite

Serial Killer Doctor Hangs Himself in His Cell (2004)

To English doctor Harold Shipman, the fundamental medical principle of "first do no harm" apparently meant little. After practicing medicine for decades, he aroused suspicion in 1998, when it emerged that he was named the sole beneficiary in a deceased patient's will—a will that Shipman turned out to have forged. He was arrested and ultimately convicted of killing 15 patients, but he is suspected of more than 200 murders. The final life he took was his own. How did "Dr. Death" kill his victims? More...

Graupner was a prolific writer and revered in his time. Why did he fall into obscurity? More... Discuss
