Young Nurse Lucy Letby Arrested For The Third Time After Allegedly Murdering 8 Babies And Trying To Murder 10 More

In a statement released several days ago, the Chester Police said, “In July 2018, a healthcare professional was arrested on suspicion of murder in relation to the deaths of 8 babies and the attempted murder of 6 babies at the neonatal unit at The Countess of Chester Hospital. She was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries.”

“In June 2019, the healthcare professional was re-arrested on suspicion of murder in relation to the deaths of 8 babies and the attempted murder of 6 babies.  She was also arrested in connection with the attempted murder of 3 additional babies.”

“Today (Tuesday 10 November), as part of our ongoing enquiries, the healthcare professional has been re-arrested on suspicion of murder in relation to the deaths of 8 babies and the attempted murder of 9 babies.”

“The woman is currently in custody helping officers with their enquiries. Parents of all the babies have been kept fully updated on this latest development and they are continuing to be supported throughout the process by specially trained officers.”

“This is an extremely difficult time for all the families and it is important to remember that, at the heart of this, there are a number of bereaved families seeking answers as to what happened to their children.”

Now, they have formally named Lucy as the suspect in the deaths of these poor babies.
