Killing For Fun: Nurse Confesses To Murdering 100 Patients Over Five Years

Published

41-year old Niels Hoegel in court

41-year old Niels Hoegel, a  former German nurse, confessed on Tuesday that he killed 100 patients between 2000 and 2005.

According to Washington Post, Hoegel, who had already been sentenced to life in prison after being charged with at least six murders and several more attempts, admitted to carrying out one of Europe’s most gruesome mass murder cases since World War II.

Prosecutors pushed for a new trial after details indicated that Hoegel injected 100 more victims with deadly drugs such as lidocaine and calcium chloride out of “boredom.”

The death toll may be even higher than currently assumed, because some victims — between ages 34 and 96 — were cremated. More than 130 other bodies were exhumed during the investigation.

As his trial got underway Tuesday, Hoegel admitted that the accusations were largely correct. “That’s the way it is,” he said.

His mass murder went unnoticed for years, partially because many of the patients he treated were already critically ill and because Hoegel tried to resuscitate his victims after deliberately putting them on the brink of death. In some cases, patients survived the ordeal, but records show that fatality rates regularly increased when Hoegel was on shift.

Investigators are also probing the responsibility of the hospitals where Hoegel worked. Authorities said that staff there was aware of irregularities, but failed to act. Even when Hoegel was caught administering his deadly drug cocktail to one victim in 2005, hospital officials did not immediately intervene. They only reached out to authorities after Hoegel killed yet another patient, using the same method.

The nurse has claimed that he acted spontaneously and repeatedly vowed to never kill again. In 2015, he apologized for his crimes, saying that he was “honestly sorry.”

Man Found With 21 Vaginas In His Freezer Appears In Court

Published

on

A man who was allegedly found with 21 pieces of female genitalia in his freezer has appeared in court. Peter Frederiksen, 63, a Danish man living in South Africa arrives in the dock ahead of his bail application.

Frederiksen was arrested back in September after 21 mutilated vaginas were allegedly found in his home. Surgical equipment and anaesthetic drugs were also said to have been found in the property. It’s believed his wife, 28-year-old Anna Matseliso Molise, told police he drugged her and cut off private parts of her anatomy while she was incapacitated.

She was due to testify but was gunned down and killed while leaving her house last month. Police believe most of the victims are from the Lesotho area. Frederiksen, said to own a gun shop, allegedly sedates victims before performing the illegal operations, a police statement said.

It is not clear if the severed vaginas were removed when the women were alive – or indeed if they would have survived the attacks. Masilea Langa, a police spokeswoman, said that Frederiksen had kept a clear and organised record of every body part he had removed since his first victim in 2010.

The gun shop owner was arrested after the body parts were found in plastic freezer bags, confirmed police spokesman Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi. Mr Mulaudzi said one of the victims alerted authorities and police have since appealed to any other women who may have been assaulted by the man to come forward.

He faces charges of sexual assault, intimidation and breaking South Africa’s medical laws. A police investigation was launched enlisting the help of a forensics team.

Pope Francis Changes Lord’s Prayer: Pontiff Changes ‘Lead Us Not Into Temptation’ In Jesus’ Prayer

Published

on

Pope Francis has changed the Lord’s Prayer after criticising the English translation for implying that God – not Satan – leads people into temptation.

Francis approved an alteration the line ‘lead us not into temptation’ which now reads ‘do not let us fall into temptation’, which is closer to the French translation.

Speaking about the change back in 2017, Francis said: ‘It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.’

The pontiff continued: ‘I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen.

‘A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately.’  The change comes after 16 years of research by Biblical scholars, and corrects what they believe was an error when the prayer was translated.

It is thought that Jesus originally spoke the prayer in Aramaic, before it was translated into Greek and other languages. The English version of the prayer is derived from the Greek translation.

The Greek word in question, eisenenkes, is found in the original New Testament in Matthew 6:13.

Francis also approved changes to The Gloria from ‘Peace on earth to people of good will’ to ‘Peace on Earth to people beloved by God.’

During the General Assembly of the Episcopal Conference of Italy, President Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti announced the approval of a third edition of the Messale Romano in May, ‘in the wake of the liturgical reform.’ The Bible has been edited many times over the years as errors were discovered with translating the ancient work.

Perhaps the most infamous version, Robert Barker’s King James Bible, published in 1611, omitted a key word from the seventh commandment. In that edition the commandment read ‘thou shalt commit adultery’. The correct version is, of course, ‘thou shalt not commit adultery’.

Singapore richest man Phillip Ng

“There is more to life than wealth,” the richest man in Singapore Philip Ng has revealed

The Grapevine has learnt that Philip Ng is considered to be Singapore’s richest man. He has a net worth of  $11.9 Billion and he is not only financially rich but also a certified follower of Jesus. Ng revealed that what made him truly wealthy was not his large amount of money, but his relationship with Jesus Christ.

One of Philip Ng’s mentees Matthew Yao, asked what advice he would give to the younger generation. “Your heart will melt the moment you hear his wonderful answer,” he stated. According to Mr. Ng, he discovered that we are all broken and the only one that can fill the missing piece in our hearts is God – through His son Jesus Christ.

“People try to find that missing piece through the pursuit of money, popularity, alcohol, drugs, sex, achievements, and even in romantic relationships.  However, there is more to this life.  People are searching for better lives and better things, but life will never be better without Jesus.  For He is the only one that can satisfy us.  Real wealth is only found in Jesus,” Mr. Ng said

Mr. Ng chose to share Jesus with the young people instead of sharing about success and business matters.  We have to look deeper inside our hearts. God’s love is more valuable than any riches in this world.  Choose Him and you will discover real wealth just like that which Mr Philip Ng experienced.
