It's payback time for the U.K.'s worst serial killer, a physician who murdered at least 215 people, mainly elderly women. Victims' families described the father-of-four as "one of the most evil men in history." But wait... there's more! The inquiry found that Dr. Harold Shipman had killed an additional 200 people and there was also a "real suspicion" he could have claimed another 45 victims.
