Shipman Harold

(redirected from Dr Death)

Shipman Harold

A UK GP (1947-2004) who was one of the most prolific serial killers in history. Whilst he was only convicted of killing 15—mostly women, often by lethal injection of heroin—218 deaths have been positively linked to him; many left him money in wills, which were forged with his typewriter. Ten days after his conviction, the General Medical Council struck him off the GP Register. He hung himself in his prison cell using bed sheets. A memorial garden to Shipman’s victims, The Garden of Tranquillity, opened in Hyde Park London in the summer of 2005.
