Details: In February of 1991, two patients at the Casa Colina Peninsula Rehabilitation Center in Southern California, Diane Conn and Carolyn Myracks, lost consciousness and were treated for dangerously low levels of blood sugar. The nurse that treated the two women, Cuban-born Lissette Nukida, was arrested soon afterwards when she confessed to tampering with the women's IVs by injecting insulin in them. She also confessed that she injected insulin in several plastic bags in a storeroom. After Nukida was arrested, she told authorities that she did not intend to kill the two women, and only did it because she believed that the prison doctors could help cure her headaches. She was charged with sixteen counts of tampering with consumer products. Interestingly, the prison staff who dealt with her claimed that as far as they knew, Nukida never once sought treatment for her alleged headaches. While in prison, met an alleged heroin smuggler. The two later married, and while out on bail in January of 1993, the couple vanished.

Results: Captured. In September of 1993, months before her story even aired, Nukida and her husband were arrested in Mexico. Nukida's husband was returned to prison for parole violation. Nukida pled guilty to two counts of tampering with consumer products resulting in serious bodily injury, and four counts of tampering with consumer products and was sentenced to eighteen years in prison.
