The nurse was arrested after mysterious deaths of 38 patients during her shifts

Daniela Poggiali was arrested after police investigated the mysterious death of a patient under her care. They shortly came across 38 other unexplained deaths during her shifts. Accused of multiple murders, she's awaiting trial in Italy. She gets daily fan mail from those calling her "good looking".

The photo just released of the alleged killer might change some minds.  A chilling picture has surfaced of the nurse giving thumbs up next to what is believed to be a dead body.

The disgusting photo was taken by a colleague who claims to have been intimidated by Poggiali. In another picture, she apparently imitates a dead patient by lying next to her with her mouth open.

Police were initially alerted to Poggiali after a 78-year-old patient was admitted to the hospital. The woman died after being injected with high levels of potassium.

Further investigation revealed that over a three month period, 38 out of 86 patients under the nurse's care had all died mysteriously.

According to law enforcement officials, Poggiali thought the dead patients were "annoying" or had "pushy relatives."

A magistrate investigating the case said: "We believe she is sound of mind, but simply took satisfaction, and real pleasure in killing. The photos reveal an unbearable cruelty that I have not seen in 30 years on the job."
