Nurse held on suspicion of murdering 8 babies and trying to kill 9 more
Investigation into the tragedies in Chester has been on for more than three years
As bizarre as it might sound, who would have expected a nurse, understood to be in charge of babies, to be a child killer?
British nurse Lucy Letby was re-arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of murdering eight babies and trying to kill another nine, according to a report in Mail Online.
Letby was previously arrested in 2018 and 2019 over the tragedies at the Countess of Chester Hospital in Britain. Authorities were spotted searching her home and a tent was seen outside, the report stated. The home of her parents in Hereford was also searched.
Letby lives less than a mile away from the hospital where she worked as a healthcare professional. If the nurse is convicted of the murders, she will be known as Britain's most prolific child killer followed by the likes of Beverly Allitt, Myra Handley and Ian Bradey, and Robert Black.
Letby started working at Chester Hospital after she graduated from Chester University in 2011. Colleagues have described her as an awkward but kind-hearted person.
According to another report, the hospital's medical director, Ian Harvey, has stated that the neonatal unit is safe now that Letby has been arrested. Investigation in the case continues.
