Reta Mays - Serial Killer

Reta Mays A woman who murdered seven elderly military veteran patients and tried to slay an eighth at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center faces sentencing. Reta Mays, 46, faces seven terms of life in federal prison plus 20 years. Mays admitted to the crimes but she said nothing about a motive. Her pattern was to inject patients with lethal doses of insulin.
Mays is a veteran and is taking medication for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Experts say, “serial murderers commit their crimes because they want to. The exception to this would be those few killers suffering from a severe mental illness.” Mays is not mentally ill, otherwise that could have been used as a defense. The why may never be known.
