Dr. “X”
Carl Rohbeck thought he needed routine hernia surgery and was taken to the Riverdell Hospital in Oradell, New Jersey, where his surgeon, Dr. Jacalevich, made a quick decision to cancel it. Not shortly long after Carl passed away, and over the next 10 months 8 more people would suffer the same suspicious fate.

In 1966 an empty bottle of tubocurarine, a muscle relaxant used for surgeries, was found in Dr. Jacalevich’s locker, who became the prime suspect in the suspicious deaths. Investigators believed he tainted the patients to try and sabotage the careers of his colleagues, but all charges against him were eventually dropped due to insufficient evidence.
