Tyler Police investigating murder of patient at hospital

On Tuesday, April 10, Tyler Police arrested William George Davis (2/3/84), a nurse connected to the death of a patient at the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler.

CHRISTUS approached the Smith County District Attorney and the Tyler Police Department with concerns that a nurse may have been involved in intentionally causing harm to several patients at one of their hospitals after learning that patients were experiencing unexplained symptoms inconsistent with their treatment and recovery. A Special Criminal Investigation Team was formed to examine the case.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families who have been affected by these acts,” said Police Chief Jimmy Toler. “The assistance and cooperation from the Smith County District Attorney and CHRISTUS have been extremely beneficial during the initial stages of this investigation.”

Davis, 34, from Hallsville, TX, was arrested by Tyler Police investigators and transported to the Smith County Jail. His bond has been set at $2,000,000 by Judge Jack Skeen.

“We are proud of the work our special criminal investigation team has put into this case so far,” said Toler. “We understand how big of an impact this will have on our city and community. We are limited in what we can share to protect the integrity of the investigation, but we will provide updates as we move forward and details become available.”
