Charles “The Angel of Death” Cullen — the killer nurse of Somerset Medical in New Jersey and who has pleaded guilty to murdering 29 patients under his care at five New Jersey Hospitals and two in Pennsylvania — has now decided he wants to donate one of his kidneys to a dying man in New York. Would you accept a body part from a confessed murderer in order to save your life?
Would you worry about the goodness in you rejecting the evil in the donated organ? What would you say to the families of the victims your donor murdered? The hopeful recipient of Cullen’s kidney — there is an ongoing legal and medical debate if Cullen would donate the kidney under the laws of the state of New Jersey or New York — is a relative of the woman Cullen was dating at the end of his killing spree in December 2003. That woman gave birth to the Angel of Death’s child soon after his arrest for murder.
