Where is former nurse Will Davis now? Here's what we know about the infamous serial killer.

William George Davis is a former nurse who worked at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler, Texas, as recently as early 2018.

During his career, he was linked to a number of patients who reportedly experienced inexplicable complications in recovery following heart surgeries. According to a report by NBC News, several patients suffered from neurological issues and died while under his care. Security footage showed that he was often the last person to see them before they died.

He was fired from his job in January 2018 and was arrested the following April. He had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, with his attorney arguing that he was being used as a scapegoat in their deaths. He languished in court for several years before being found guilty of capital murder in October 2021. In the end, he was confirmed to have killed four people while injuring several others.

The four people he murdered were killed when Will "[injected] air into their arterial systems," per CBS News.

Among the evidence, there was a recording of a call that Will made to his ex-wife where he claimed that he wanted to extend the patients' recovery time in the ICU so that he could earn more overtime pay. However, the prosecution deemed none of the deaths accidental.

Shortly after the guilty verdict, he was sentenced to the death penalty. But where is he now?

According to sources like Sportskeeda, Will is still alive as of February 2023. He is currently serving time on death row and is incarcerated in the Allan B. Polunsky Unit in Polk County, Texas.

Despite his severe sentence, it appears that he has enough leeway to appear on a Hulu docuseries to discuss his heinous crimes in detail.

The Lesson Is Murder begins streaming on Hulu on March 23.
