William Melchert-Dinkel, This Guy’s Gotta Die: Convinced People Online to Commit Suicide



​In today’s episode of This Guy’s Gotta Die, we give you William Melchert-Dinkel of Faribault, Minnesota. He’s a nurse who got his kicks by surfing suicide chats sites, then convincing the vulnerable that it was a really good idea to whack themselves…

Our dickhead convinced college student Nadia Kajouji to jump into an icy Ottawa river

Subject: William Melchert-Dinkel

Occupation: Male nurse, sick fuck.

Evidence: Police say he’d go to suicide chat rooms pretending to be suicidal himself, or pretending to be a female nurse. His advice: Let go and take the plunge. In one case, he told Mark Drybrough of England how to make a noose. Then Drybrough hanged himself in his bedroom — doing it before a webcam so Melchert-Dinkel could watch.

Posing as another female nurse, he told Canadian college student Nadia Kajouji that she wouldn’t leave a mess is she killed herself by jumping in an icy river. Kajouji did just that, killing herself in a river in Ottawa.

Melchert-Douchebag has confessed to cops that he urged dozens of people to kill themselves. He also entered into 10-11 fake suicide pacts. He believes that half of them actually committed suicide.

True Crime’s Verdict: Officially, he’s only been charged with two counts of aiding suicides. But Melchert-Dinkel is worthy of so much more. This guy’s gotta die. (Special thanks to reader Lori for the tip.)
