The crime itself took place in the Samaritan Hospital located on Long Island in New york. All of the crimes took place while Angelo was the age of 26 through 27. He started working at the hospital in April 1987. He was arrested in October 1987. The crimes involved Angelo and seven of his victims. Angelo wanted to be seen as hero. He would try to accomplish his goal by intentionally harming patients through different ways. He would hurt them, then proceed to "heal/help" them. But, there were instances where Angelo's actions resulted in great damage and even death. There was one patient that was injected with Pavulon, muscle relaxant, by Angelo. That patient did not feel well and even paged another nurse for help. Fortunately, this particular patient survived. The majority of Angelo's victims were injected with paralyzing agents.
