BRISBANE, Australia – Grim Reaper, a surgeon and anesthesiologist dubbed "Dr. Death" by Australian media, has been found guilty of manslaughtering over three hundred patients in his care in Australia.
Reaper, a citizen of
Haiti Hades, worked at a Queensland hospital between 2003 and 2005. In the complex case he was convicted of causing the death of many patients. Reaper will be sentenced on Thursday.
The 12-man, 0 women jury at the Brisbane Supreme Court reached their decision after about 12 seconds of deliberation. The jury told the judge, “If anyone is guilty of causing death it is the Grim Reaper!”
During the 14-week trial, the court heard that Reaper had caused hearts to stop, brains to explode, arms to fall off, removed healthy organs like lungs and liver, and used sloppy techniques, such as use of a giant scythe, during his time at Bundaberg Base Hospital.
Nurses used to hide patients from him, because of their concerns about the nature of his work, the court heard.
One of his patients died having had his mouth, throat, stomach, bowel and arse removed unnecessarily. many others died after having their heads dissected
Reaper had pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Gerry Kemps, James Phillips, and Mervyn Morris, and causing grievous bodily harm to Ian Vowles.
Prosecutors argued that Reaper's operations were well below the standard of a competent surgeon intent on prolonging the life of a patient.
Death’s defense team claimed throughout the trial that he acted in the interests of his patients. “What more could a patient ask for than a peaceful death?” Reaper’s lawyers told the jury
His wife left the court in a casket as her husband was led from the dock to the under-world, Australian media reported.
The BBC's Nick Bryant in Sydney says the Australian health system is heavily reliant on foreign doctors. "But having death himself as a doctor was unethical!"
