Overview

Hospital Horror

Gaunt and ghostlike, Charles Cullen was a lifelong misfit who quietly became one of the most prolific serial killers in U.S. history. Over the course of sixteen years, he walked the hallways of hospitals and nursing homes in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where he worked as a nurse, "ministering" to the elderly and other gravely ill patients in critical care units. The self-appointed grim reaper played a cruel game, deciding which of his charges should die. . .and snuffing out their lives with fatal drug overdoses.

Nightmare Nurse

Cullen specialized in nighttime assignments to ICU wards that he used as his own personal hunting grounds. He was one of a sinister breed of health care professionals who murder their patients: a Death Angel. He confessed to killing as many as 40 patients from 1988 to 2003.

Death Angels Among Us

Now, bestselling true crime writer Clifford L. Linedecker and Zach Martin, a popular radio personality whose mother was Cullen's first known victim at New Jersey's Somerset Medical Center, tell the chilling story of a diabolical serial murderer who used his medical skills not to cure, but to kill the most vulnerable of victims. Be warned: Charles Cullen is neither the first nor the last such Death Angel--and any one of us could be next. . .

    A GRIM STORY - MORE FRIGHTENING BECAUSE IT IS TRUE

    'Nurse' as defined by Webster is one who cares for the infirm, one who attempts to cure and alleviate suffering. Forget our traditional view of a nurse when you open the pages of 'Death Angel,' a grim, cold-chill true story of serial killer, Charles Cullen. Penned by writer Clifford L. Linedecker and Zach T. Martin, the son of Cullen's first known victim, 'Death Angel' is a shocking chronology of lives lost and an intimate portrait of a psychopathic murderer who confessed to killing some 40 hospital patients between 1988 and 2003. Night time was Cullen's time. He requested after daylight hours assignments to ICU wards in Pennsylvania and New Jersey hospitals where he used the skills he had learned not to heal but to kill. He chose his victims at random, deciding who would live and who would die. After he was apprehended Cullen insisted that he hadn't wanted people to see him as he was, as who he was, Detective Sergeant Braun asked, ' Who are you, Charles?' 'A man, person, who was trusted and had responsibility for a lot of people dying,' was the answer. '......I had no right to do this. I had no right! I just couldn't stop! I couldn't stop it!' What could be more frightening than a man who repeatedly commits such heinous crimes, knows full well what he is doing, but cannot stop? From pictures included, Cullen is slim, a man with pleasant features. He doesn't at all appear to be the monster many claimed he was, yet his acts indicate he was less than human. What could possibly have compelled anyone to kill and kill again and again the most helpless of victims? Unfortunately, there is not an ending to this story. As late as June, 2005 Cullen's guilty pleas for five murders were accepted. And the victims families continue to plead for legislation to prevent rogue healthcare workers from moving from job to job as Cullen did.
