About Us

From KENS-TV in San Antonio, Texas, this is the story of Genene Jones: The woman known as Texas' "killer nurse" and the vial of a powerful drug that became the smoking gun in the case against her. She was set to get out of prison on early release after serving just a third of a 99-year sentence. Investigators on the case say she is suspected in the deaths of dozens of children under her care while she was a nurse in San Antonio in the early 1980s. However, she has only been convicted of one child's death. In the VILE Podcast series, fast forward to 2017 when a new team of investigators is working to change that and ensure she stays behind bars.
