In a shock­ing turn of events, for­mer nurse Heather Press­dee, 41, has plead­ed guilty to admin­is­ter­ing fatal dos­es of insulin to patients under her care in Penn­syl­va­nia nurs­ing homes. 

Press­dee was arrest­ed in May 2023 and faced a series of charges, includ­ing two counts of mur­der and two counts of crim­i­nal homicide.

Press­dee’s guilty plea con­cludes a lengthy inves­ti­ga­tion that revealed a string of vic­tims dat­ing back to late 2020. 

The Penn­syl­va­nia Office of Attor­ney Gen­er­al dis­cov­ered that Press­dee had been admin­is­ter­ing insulin to patients with­out med­ical neces­si­ty, lead­ing to mul­ti­ple fatal­i­ties and attempt­ed mur­ders. In some instances, she inject­ed patients more than once if they did not die from the ini­tial dose.

The dis­turb­ing inci­dents occurred in nurs­ing home facil­i­ties across Alleghe­ny, Arm­strong, But­ler, and West­more­land counties. 

Press­dee’s vic­tims ranged in age from 43 to 104 years old, and she worked in 11 dif­fer­ent nurs­ing homes and hos­pi­tals dur­ing her 4.5‑year career, which began in Octo­ber 2018 and end­ed with her arrest.

On Thurs­day, Press­dee received a life sen­tence with no pos­si­bil­i­ty of parole. In addi­tion to the mur­der and homi­cide charges, she also faced crim­i­nal attempt homi­cide, neglect of a care-depen­dent per­son, reck­less­ly endan­ger­ing anoth­er per­son, aggra­vat­ed assault, and mur­der charges.
