German authorities say Monday Aug. 28, 2017 they now believe that a nurse who was convicted of killing patients with overdoses of heart medication killed at least 84 people.

Niels Hoegel, face covered, was convicted in 2015 of two murders and two attempted murders at a clinic in the northwestern town of Delmenhorst.

In an investigation, though, police believe he's involved in another 88 deaths after analyzing patient files and exhuming more than 130 bodies in Germany, Poland and Turkey.

Criminal acts Hegel noticed one of his colleagues back in 2005.

This is reported to the police.

"The death toll is unique in the history of the German republic", said Arne Schmidt, the chief police investigator.

Johann Kuhme, an Oldenburg police chief, said: "The findings continue to breach any imagination".

The man, identified only as Niels H. under reporting rules, has "confessed in many of those cases", a police statement said, but could not remember all the details of his actions.

Allegedly, Högel injected an overdose of non-prescribed medicication into the patients' bodies, causing their hearts to stop, in order to try and resuscitate them and be praised for his so-called efforts. And a investigation into neglect at the Oldenburg hospital is ongoing.

Prosecutor Daniela Schiereck-Bohlemann claimed that Hoegel admitted to 30 cases in which he killed patients, AFP said.

Police said on Monday that they had researched extra passings at doctor's facilities in the northern German urban communities of Oldenburg and Delmenhorst in the wake of uncovering the remaining parts of 134 individuals with connections to Niels H. Then the patient survived after injection, and the nurse put on 7.5 years for attempted murder. He did so with at least 90 victims.

The proceedings against Hogel were scheduled, either by the end of the year or early 2018.
