- Lucy Letby, a neonatal nurse, was found guilty of murdering seven babies and attempting to kill six others within a year at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
- Her methods included injecting air into babies’ bloodstreams, meddling with feeding tubes, and poisoning IV feeds.
- A chilling note found in her home post-arrest read, “I AM EVIL I DID THIS,” acknowledging her heinous actions.
In a chilling revelation, Lucy Letby, a 33-year-old neonatal nurse from a British hospital, has been found guilty of intentionally murdering seven babies and attempting to murder six more over a period of a year.
The crimes took place in the Countess of Chester Hospital in northwest England between June 2015 and June 2016.
The Manchester Crown Court made the verdict after 22 days of jury deliberation.
Letby’s tactics included injecting air into babies’ bloodstreams, tampering with nasogastric tubes to introduce air or milk into their stomachs, and adding insulin to IV feeds.
The British government has since announced an independent inquiry into the broader events at the hospital, ensuring that the affected families will receive the answers they need.
Senior doctors had previously raised concerns about Letby, but their warnings went unheeded.
Although Letby defended her actions, citing her dedication and care, a note discovered in her home after her arrest spoke volumes about her guilt.
On a green sticky note, she wrote, “I don’t deserve to live… I killed them on purpose because I’m not good enough to care for them.”
She went on to confess, “I am a horrible evil person,” and “I AM EVIL I DID THIS.”
