The Alpha Killers: Three Prolific Murderous Doctors
Doctors are supposed to heal people, not kill them. Murders by physicians always arouse a great deal of public interest and invariably instigate a media frenzy. Physicians enjoy a high level of trust and respect as essential providers of life-saving medical care. The doctor is, or at least has been, viewed as a father figure by society – a source of security, safety, and comfort. When a member of the medical profession violates this important public trust, society at large experiences a psychological shock similar to that occurring when a high-ranking military officer or a respected political leader commits treason.
