Skin Hunters

Skin Hunters

The “Skin Hunters” was the media nickname given to four paramedic workers in Poland, who were convicted of murdering at least five elderly patients and selling information regarding their deaths to competing funeral homes. The price of the bribes paid to the killers was billed to the family of the deceased as an additional funeral charge. The perpetrators were apprehended in 2002. The court found out that more than 40 paramedics, doctors, nurses, and undertakers had conspired to ship seriously ill elderly patients straight to funeral parlors rather than hospitals, as a way to make quick cash in a grisly scheme that investigators have said could have been going on for almost 20 years.
