Not an entirely fictional story of the man who dubbed the “heparin killer.” What was the reason and what was going on in the mind of the young man who decided to commit and continue to commit the heaviest of crimes, often believing he was doing a good thing? What compels a promising and intelligent medical student to change his ethics and to commit evil? The idea that a man you know well, see on a daily basis and actually like, a man who is helpful, willing and self-sacrificing even at the expense of his own comfort, is actually a murderer is a horrendous thought. We follow a story that may have happened, perhaps did happen and, unfortunately, can happen at any time. And the first thing to come to your mind when you learn that you knew the monster is: How close was someone close to me – or even me – to becoming one of his victims? The sensational story of the “heparin killer” is a hard blow. Yes, it really could have happened to any of us. This didn’t happen “somewhere in the world.” It happened here, in our own back yards!
