    (October 21, 1954- )
    Born in Tacoma, Washington
    Birth name is Joseph Michael Swango
    Doctor who murdered his patients between 1983 and 1997.
    The number of his victims is estimated to be between 35 and 60 people.
    He poisoned his co-workers (non-lethally).
    He disgraced an honorable profession.
    His 'ultimate fantasy' was seeing a school bus full of children burst into flames while kids flew out, burning.
    While attending Southern Illinois University he couldn't find the human heart in an x-ray and ruined a cadaver for dissection.
    He had a disturbing interest in critical patients and a cold attitude towards death.
    His nickname was 'Double-O Swango' because he had a license to kill.
    He kept a scrapbook of news clippings about crimes and tragedies.
    When an associate questioned him about his scrapbook, he said, 'If I'm ever accused of murder, this will prove I'm mentally unstable.'
    He failed to graduate with the rest of his class in 1982 at the University of Iowa because he'd disappear from his assigned rotations to go to the ambulance service instead.
    When he finally graduated, his dean's letter implied that he was inept.
    He was honorably discharged from the Marines.
    Patients and nurses witnessed his suspicious activity but they were largely ignored.
    When he went to a new institution, his explanations for his criminal record were not checked out.
    His case has helped the Medical Boards to re-examine the governance of doctors.
    As a child, he was well behaved and earned good grades in school.
    He was valedictorian in high school.
    He graduated summa cum laude from Quincy College.
    He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole (September 6, 2000).
