Detective, clinic medical director testify on day 6 of bleach deaths trial
Lufkin, Texas — In the sixth day of Kimberly Saenz’s capital murder trial, a Lufkin Police detective on Monday discussed evidence he collected from DaVita Dialysis in April 2008, including two labeled syringes that tested positive for bleach.
The 38-year-old former nurse is accused of killing five patients and injuring five others including Marie Bradley, a patient whose name was written on a syringe label that tested positive for bleach, according to Lufkin Police Det. Sgt. Stephen Abbott. Another syringe labeled “Zemplar,” a common dialysis medication, also tested positive for bleach. The syringes were 3 ml in size, contrary to Saenz’s defense that she specifically measured bleach in 10 ml syringes for her cleaning water. Those syringes could not be linked to Saenz, as an attempt to pull fingerprints was unsuccessful.
