Between 2015 and 2016, the mortality rates for infants at the Countess of Chester Hospital in Britain were unusually high. There were so many deaths and unexplained medical incidents occurring that the hospital actually stopped accepting premature infants to care for.
There seemed to be a common denominator in the hospital when these deaths– many of the babies had been around British nurse Lucy Letby. After a primary investigation, Lucy was moved to clerical duties at the hospital.
On 11 November 2020, Lucy was charged with eight counts of murder and ten counts of attempted murder in regards to the babies who had died or been injured under her care. Lucy’s alleged victims have not been named publicly, and are noted in court documents as Baby A – Baby Q.
Part of the prosecution against Lucy includes some notes that she allegedly wrote. One of the notes stated: “ I don't deserve to live. I DID THIS WHY ME. I killed them on purpose because I'm not good enough to care for them, and I am horrible and evil person.’
Join us for this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast as we discuss the case of nightmare nurse Lucy Letby.
After our last episode was released, there was an update in the Moscow, Idaho murder case. Police released information about a vehicle that was seen in the area at the time and they have appealed for information on the occupant/s. We also discuss this development in this episode.
