Dr. Brian Nadler, 35, was charged last year with the death of Albert Poidinger, 89, a resident of Pointe-Claire, Québec, who was a resident patient at Hawkesbury and District General Hospital. A charge of first-degree murder against Nadler resulted after police were called to the hospital March 25 2021 to investigate Poidinger’s death.
Nadler, who lives in Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Québec, remained in police custody until July 2021 when he was released on bail.
Hawkesbury OPP continued investigating other deaths at HGH while Nadler was a doctor there. Today police announced three more charges of first-degree murder filed against Nadler as a result of the investigation.
Those charges relate to the deaths of Lorraine Lalande, 79, of Hawkesbury, Judith Lungulescu, 93, of East Hawkesbury Township, and Claire Briêre, 80, of Rigaud, Québec.
The investigation continues. Nadler’s lawyer has stated in past media reports that his client maintains his innocence.
