On January 13th, 2004, on his 58th birthday, Harold Shipman was found dead by hanging in his prison cell. Harold, also known as Dr. Death, was the prolific serial killer in modern history, charged with the murder of 15 people, but could be responsible for hundreds of deaths. This week, Savannah explores how Harold built up his own private practice and used it to falsify records to cover up the many deaths that he was responsible for, as well as how one concerned daughter ultimately led to his capture by police.
