Shocking selfies have emerged of a nurse, who allegedly murdered dozens of patients, posing with her thumbs up beside an apparently dead woman.
Italian nurse Daniela Poggiali, from the town of Lugo, in the Emilia-Romagna Region of central Italy, was arrested last month in connection with 38 deaths on her watch, some of which were described by prosecutors as ‘very suspicious.’
An autopsy on a 78-year-old woman treated at the hospital near Ravenna in north-east Italy, revealed dangerous and abnormal levels of potassium chloride in her system.
Prosecutors allege Miss Poggiali murdered for pleasure, dosing ‘annoying’ patients or those with pushy family members with lethal amounts of potassium – which vanishes after 48 hours, making it an effective poison that is hard to detect.
It is the compound used in lethal injection executions in the U.S.
In sickening pictures leaked to the press the 42-year-old is seen grinning next to the seemingly dead body of an elderly woman. She stands over the hospital bed of an unconscious woman giving a thumbs up.
In another snap she is shown in a cruel imitation of an apparently deceased patient by lying next to her with her mouth wide open.
