The Cleveland Plain Dealer investigates how a doctor was able to poison patients and co-workers and get away with it. Michael Swango was found guilty of slipping arsenic into snacks and there was strong evidence that he killed some of his patients. He was also able to finagle his way into two medical schools, which did not do a thorough background check. Dec. 19, 1993.
