In the early hours of the 18th of November 2011, a fire was deliberately lit at the Quakers Hill Nursing Home.

The nursing home housed 89 residents, a lot of whom were high dependency patients who were immobile, suffering dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The fire killed a total of fourteen residents and many who survived suffered burns and smoke inhalation.

“You won’t believe it, but it was like, satan saying to me that it’s the right thing to do”

The case is one of Australia’s worst ever mass murders. Committed by a registered nurse, Roger Dean. The person in charge of the nursing home that night. What made this monster burn down a nursing home and take fourteen lives?
