AG: Derry Nurse Admitted to Killing Former Beverly Resident

Catherine George had her license suspended after telling police she had killed her brother-in-law, formerly of Beverly, by giving him 300 units of insulin. A criminal investigation is also ongoing.

Attorney General Michael Delaney announced Thursday that the New Hampshire Board of Nursing has suspended the license of registered nurse Catherine George of Derry.

The emergency suspension, effective Oct. 23, was in response to questions surrounding the Oct. 9 death of George's brother-in-law, Randall Percival, formerly of Beverly, who was presently living in Raymond, the attorney general's office said.

According to the attorney general's office, George went to the Derry Police Department on Oct. 14 and stated that she had killed her brother-in-law. She reportedly told police that she gave her brother-in-law 300 units of insulin, which she claimed to have brought home from her job.

The Board of Nursing has scheduled a hearing on Nov. 2 to determine if the suspension of George's license should continue pending completion of the board's investigation. A criminal investigation by the New Hampshire State Police Major Crimes Unit and Raymond Police is also ongoing.

According to his obituary, Percival had lived in Raymond for the last 26 years. He grew up in Wenham, Mass. and formerly lived in Beverly, Mass. as well. For the last six years, he had worked as a research and development optics engineer for Carl Zeiss, NTS in Peabody, Mass.

The KILLER here is vile-duct cancer. A particularly cruel killer. A rare and painful cancer. Randy was at home with Hospice intact, he had been given last rights, he was supposed to die painlessly and soon, neither of these things occurred. Vommitting vile from his mouth and nose, appearing to be pregnant with the vile building in his stomach area. Randy didn't deserve this horrible horrible end of life experience. Randy and Betty were dog owners as am I, I would not let my dog suffer like this, why do we think it appropriate to let human-beings, people we love suffer like this? We need to look at "End of Life with Dignity Solutions" and this case needs to be resolved to the benefit of this loving sister, who did what she felt she had to do. God bless this family and heal thier broken hearts.

In a recent posting I mistakenly referred to a particular cancer as vile-duct and it is Bile-Duct Cancer, I apolologize for this error. Mike Carney
