Is Charles Cullen Still Alive? Where Is He Now?

Another true crime drama is out on Netflix, after The Watcher and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The Good Nurse is a gripping flick that follows Amy Loughren (Jessica Chastain), a nurse who befriends fellow nurse Charles Cullen (Eddie Redmayne) when he starts on her unit. Little does Loughren know, her friend is a serial killer.
The Good Nurse is based on journalist Charles Graeber's 2013 book of the same name and also the real crime. Charles Cullen is a murderer behind the deaths of multiple patients. Is he still alive now?

 Charles Cullen pleaded guilty to killing 29 people when he worked at hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. But the true number of victims may be much higher.
Graeber, the author of the book on which the movie is based, told CBS News in 2013 that he would "be very surprised, as would pretty much everyone I've spoken to with any knowledge of this case, if it was not in the hundreds, multiple hundreds." "We'll never know how many people Charlie Cullen ultimately killed," Graeber told NPR.

 Cullen revealed that his killings were acts of mercy. "I thought that people weren't suffering anymore, so in a sense, I thought I was helping." Despite his claims, some of his victims were not near death or suffering. 60-year-old Elenor Stoecker, an asthma patient, was recovering and in no pain when Cullen administered a fatal digoxin overdose. College student Michael Strenko was recovering from a routine spleen removal surgery when he was killed.
Cullen's mental state has also been called into question, leaving many to wonder if that played a role in his decision to embark on such a devastating journey. He attempted suicide for the first time after his mother died when he was 17. After dropping out of high school, Cullen joined the Navy, where he was reportedly bullied and attempted suicide again, resulting in his discharge from the military. Cullen attempted suicide over 20 times and was frequently admitted to psychiatric hospitals before his arrest.
