Yesterday, Illinois State Police investigators testified that a former nursing home supervisor at Woodstock Residence was aware that a fellow nurse was administering fatal doses of morphine to four residents of the nursing home. According to police testimony, several nurses came to Penny Whitlock to make her aware of what Marty Himebaugh, the “Angel of Death”, was doing, but Whitlock did not report it to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Because of this neglect, she faces charge of criminal neglect and obstructing justice.
Chicago nursing home lawyer Steve Levin of Levin & Perconti currently represents the family of one of Himebaugh’s victims. Levin filed a civil lawsuit last September against Woodstock Residence, Himebaugh and Whitlock.
