Timea Faludi: Prolific Serial Killer Nurse – 2001, Hungary


Timea Faludi (Faludi Tímea), a nurse at Gyula Nviro Hospital in Budapest, when she was arrested for murdering dozens of terminally ill patients for “mercy,” as she later claimed.

She had joined the staff in 1994 and earned the nickname “Black Angel” because of her choice of clothing. Euthanasia is illegal in Hungary. After arrest she admitted to police that, between May 2000 through February 2001, she had killed at least 40 patients, by injecting them intravenously with overdoses of pain killers. At the hospital nurses were not permitted to perform intravenous injections. She later retracted her confession and at trial admitted killing eight patients but claimed she was merely trying to relieve the patients’ suffering.

Other staff members noticed that deaths had been coinciding with Faludi’s shifts; and when a colleague observed her giving an injection to a patient she was reported to the police. At the trial the court psychiatrist testified that the nurse possessed a "well-developed ability to empathise, while internally she felt she was God". The judge when giving the verdict stated that “she alternately put herself in the place of the doctor or in that of the patient and took decisions instead of them." Faludi joined the hospital staff in 1994. On December 2, 2002 she was sentenced to 9 years in prison.
