Jones is not the only murderous healthcare professional. She is just one of many.
Unfortunately, this strange and upsetting phenomenon of murderous medical professionals points to some unsettling patterns. In a separate case, an Austin woman, Susan Hey, was convicted in court of murdering two elderly men by overdosing them with potassium in 1988. She was sentenced to serve two 50-year sentences.
That’s not all. It seems that there is a whole laundry list of these horrible murders in medical facilities. In 2005, a Jeanine Hannah was sentenced to 99 years in prison for over-injecting Margaret Bradley, 65, of McAllen, with a fatal dosage of insulin in 2002. Another nurse, Vickie Dawn Jackson, was sentenced to life in prison for murdering a minimum of ten patients in 2000 in Nocona General Hospital. According to CNN, Jackson injected patients with a drug that is used to stop breathing to allow for the insertion of a breathing tube.
Kimberly Saenz, 38, was charged with capital murder in the murders and aggravated assault in the case of five patients at a dialysis clinic in 2008. Saenz was sentenced to life in prison in 2012. She was caught because a Lufkin fire official encouraged an investigation at the clinic as a result of the strange amount of calls for paramedics at the clinic.
