[*Note from HIFA moderator (Neil PW): 'Harold Shipman... was an English general practitioner who is believed to be one of the most prolific serial killers in modern history. On 31 January 2000, he was found guilty of the murder of 15 patients under his care; his total number of victims was approximately 250.' Wikipedia]
