Woman told police she ended man's suffering

DERRY, N.H. — A registered nurse told police she injected her brother-in-law with 300 milliliters of insulin because she didn’t want him to suffer anymore.

Catherine George, a nurse at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, N.H., walked into the Derry police station Oct. 14 and handed police a large syringe and glass vial of Novolog insulin, confessing to them that she killed him.

Randall Perciva, an engineer and licensed pilot, died in his home Oct. 9. News of his death wasn’t made public until about two weeks later, when the state attorney general’s office announced George’s nursing license had been suspended.

So far George has not been charged in the 55-year-old man’s death.

Perciva’s obituary did not refer to any health problems, but did say donations may be made in his memory to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, an organization that helps raise money to study a rare form of cancer.

Associate Attorney General Jane Young said she couldn’t comment in detail about the case because it was still under investigation.
