    Serial Killer Donates Kidney to SBUH Patient

    According to local news sources, Charles Cullen, the infamous serial killer, was successfully able to donate a kidney to a dying New York man at Stony Brook University Hospital. Cullen is currently serving out twelve life sentences for the murder of up to 40 individuals during the 1980s and 90s while working as a male nurse at various New Jersey and Pennsylvania hospitals.

    Apparently, Cullen would not appear for his sentencing hearing unless he was given permission to donate one of his kidneys. Although Stony Brook Hospital officials were not able to divulge the name of this individual, local news sources do cite that the recipient of the kidney was a relative of one of Cullen’s friends.

    Due to the difficulty in physically moving Cullen out of the purview of the State of New Jersey for the surgery, Cullen’s kidney was removed in New Jersey and subsequently flown by helicopter to Stony Brook University Hospital.
