Several cases could not be examined because the bodies had been cremated, he said. The reports of Police said that those two were not the only who were targeted by him, there may other similar murders.

In June 2016, police and prosecutors concluded that the man had killed 33 patients at the clinic in Oldenburg and that he had done so out of a desire to win approval by taking heroic measures trying to resuscitate them. He overdosed the patients with heart medicine, according to the Associated Press Monday.

Six employees of the Delmenhorst clinic were charged with manslaughter through failure to render assistance.

When the news hit the headlines, another woman approached the police with suspicions that her deceased mother was also murdered by Hoegel.

Had health authorities acted sooner this problem could have been avoided, Kuehme said. "[There was] evidence for at least 90 murders, and at least as many [suspected] cases again that can no longer be proven".

During his trial, Hoegel had said he intentionally brought about cardiac crises in 90 patients and later told investigators he also killed patients in Oldenburg.

The proceedings against Hogel were scheduled, either by the end of the year or early 2018.
