Do doctors make the best serial killers? Maybe so. Doctors have expert knowledge of the frailties of the human body. They have access to any number of deadly instruments and poisonous medicines. And some have egos that are fed by their feelings of power over life and death.
Fortunately, most doctors have the greatest level of compassion and the strongest desire to cure, not kill. But, in any bunch, there’s always a bad apple or two. They simply can’t help themselves. Murder is a calling even stronger than medicine.
For some serial killers, working in a hospital is the perfect cover for their murderous ways. Since so many people already die in hospitals, many doctor serial killers use their patients as victims through poisoning or another undetectable method of murder. Due to their power position and cover, some killer doctors have racked up hundreds of victims.
H. H. Holmes, Miachel Swango, Harold Shipman, John Bodkin Adams are some such examples who turned into ever lasting serial killers by first becoming a doctor that now history remembers. It’s very shocking that those hands which promise to give us our life can take the same away from us. Some turned out to be serial killers due to various reasons like money, experimentation, fame, own ideology and to sell them out on different levels.
MURDER FOR BODY PARTS:
One more aspect of such pscho killing and murders are:
Organ trafficking is: “the recruitment, transport, transfer, harboring orreceipt of living or deceased persons or their organs by means of the threat or use of force or other forms ofcoercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability, or of the giving to, or the receiving by, a third party of payments or benefits to achieve the transfer of control over the potential donor, for the purpose of exploitation by their removal of organs for transplantation. This pattern is linked with murder mysteries, crime plotting, genocide etc.
The illegal organ trade has at times led to murder for body parts, because of a worldwide demand of organs for transplant and organ donors. At times, criminal organizations have engaged in kidnapping people, especially children and teens, with the victims being killed and their organs harvested for the illegal organ trade. The extent is unknown, and non-fatal organ theft and removal is more widely reported than murder.
All this might come as a shock but these are mere facts!
