A Multi-jurisdictional police force has arrested and charged a 49 year old woman with first-degree murder in the deaths of 8 residents at nursing homes in southwestern Ontario.
Elizabeth Tracey Mae Wettlaufer worked at Caressant Care in Woodstock between 2007 and 2014 and at Meadow Park Nursing Home in London in 2014.
Her Linkedin profile says she was the charge nurse at both locations, with duties that include administering medication.
Woodstock police aren’t saying much about the nature of the deaths of the victims, only that they were administered drugs that are found in most nursing homes.
The victims ages ranged from 75 to 96 years old and the first homicide was recorded in 2007.
