A nurse from the state of Pennsylvania who is accused of murdering two of her own patients and injuring a third, has revealed her reasoning behind the horrific crimes and it’s pretty sick and twisted. Heather Pressdee, 40, is now facing charges of homicide, attempted murder, and aggravated assault, along with neglect of a care-dependent individual and reckless endangerment involving the deaths of a 55-year-old man and an 83-year-old man, and the injuring of a 73-year old male.
“The allegations in this case outline the callous abuse of incredibly vulnerable patients by a professional nurse,” Attorney General Michelle Henry went on to say in a statement delivered on Thursday. “As the charges indicate, these were deliberate and intentional acts perpetrated by a care-giver who was trusted to care for these victims.”
According to Fox News, “Pressdee was a registered nurse working at Quality Life Services (QLS), a retirement nursing facility, in Chicora.”
“As a family owned organization that prides itself on providing safe and compassionate care, Quality Life Services is shocked and devastated to learn that the charges brought against Ms. Pressdee by the Attorney General’s Office include alleged illegal activity that occurred at our QLS – Chicora facility,” QLS explained in a Thursday statement shared on social media platform Facebook.
“On Nov. 19, 2022, the 55-year-old victim and 83-year-old victim became ill while in Pressdee’s care. The two victims lived in rooms connected by a Jack-and-Jill-style bathroom, according to an affidavit.
“Both victims were transported to the hospital the following day when they became hypoglycemic. The 83-year-old victim had been transported to the hospital once before in October 2022 for hypoglycemia. The affidavit alleges that Pressdee gave lethal doses of insulin, a hormone used to reduce blood-sugar levels typically given to patients with diabetes, to the victims. Two of the three victims did not have diabetes,” Fox reported.
A witness to Pressdee’s crimes, a nurse practitioner, recounted a chat with the killer, informing law enforcement authorities that the nurse stated the 83-year-old victim would be “better off dead.”
The third victim, who is still alive, was under Pressdee’s care on Aug. 31, 2022, when he was taken to a local hospital with low blood sugar. He was then treated and survived the ordeal, according to information contained in an affidavit.
Pressdee was interviewed by the police on Wednesday at her home, where she confessed to local police that she injected two of the victims with insulin.
“She stated that she felt bad for their quality of life and she had hoped that they would just slip into a coma and pass away,” investigators stated in the affidavit.
Concerning the third victim, the nurse said “he was in COVID isolation and that he was having a very difficult time.” The suspect then informed police that the night of Aug. 31, 2022 “was a very busy night and he asked her to ‘kill him.'”
QLS stated it will “fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s Office as needed in the investigation and prosecution of this matter” and assured its patients and their families that “all residents of Quality Life Services – Chicora are safe and are receiving appropriate care and service.”
