“A nurse turned serial killer, but not an “angel of mercy”-style one. She wanted to make people suffer, and she got off sexually on that. She would experiment with drugs, shoot up her patients, and then climb into bed with them and masturbate against them (and probably worse, but it was the 1800s so it wasn’t reported), as they were dying. Once she was kicked out of hospitals, she went on to murder a whole family for whom she worked as a private nurse. She confessed to 33 murders, but probably killed far more.” — kls81
