Genene Jones is among those on a long list of serial killer nurses. In total, she's believed to have killed at least 60 children from 1977 to 1982 while working at Bexar Hospital. Despite this, she only has one murder conviction and one attempted murder conviction. If Texas prosecutors have anything to say about it, though, the Bexar Hospital serial killer will soon pay for more of her crimes.
Jones was often referred to by the media as the "Angel of Death." This was likely inspired by stories of her pushing young children to the brink of death with her cruelty before attempting to save them. It's unclear if she intended for any of the kids to die, but that doesn't change the fact that she ruthlessly injected young patients with medication their bodies couldn't withstand. Most of her victims were under the age of two. One hospital had the power to stop this serial killer nurse in her tracks, but they let her get away to kill again. Jones ultimately went to jail and even inspired one of Stephen King's most famous characters along the way, but she may soon go free.
