One British nurse who is currently standing accused of the murder of seven premature babies allegedly mailed out a condolence card to the family of one of the victims she is currently charged with murdering.
Lucy Letby, the nurse currently accused of seven counts of murder and the attempted murders of almost ten additional babies at the Countess of Chester Hospital between June 2015 and June 2016, openly admitted to law enforcement officials that she had sent out the card, making the claim that the action was “not normal.”
Throughout the procedures of her trial, she acknowledged that she had a picture of the card on her cell phone, according to the testimony. The card arrived after the nurse had allegedly tried to kill the child a total of three times before actually succeeding on the fourth attempt.
Despite the fact that the baby was doing quite well until Letby “got her hands on her,” prosecuting attorney Nick Johnson expressed that after that the baby vomited and started to exhibit breathing issues. He continued, “It was persistent, it was calculated and it was cold-blooded,” as reported by The Daily Mail.
Letby allegedly would inject small babies with large doses of insulin or air, or even overfeed them with milk at night while the parents were not present.
Johnson also pointed out to the jury an image of a yellow Post-it note kept by the offender. He declared that she wrote, “I don’t deserve to live. I killed them on purpose because I’m not good enough,” ” I am a horrible evil person, ” and in large capital letters, “I AM EVIL I DID THIS.”
Johnson finished, “Well, ladies and gentlemen, that in a nutshell is your task in this case. Whether or not she did these dreadful things is the decision you will have to make when you have heard all the evidence.”

The prosecution for the trial concerning Letby made the claim that she attempted to kill a pair of twins more than once and back in June of 2016 killed two babies who were part of a pair of triplets while the remaining baby survived.
In the particular case of the first child allegedly murdered by Letby, the prosecution claimed that she first injected air into the stomach of the baby before attempting the same thing two more times. After the third attempt, the baby was moved out to a different unit, and made a significant recovery, but was however then returned to Letby’s care under which the baby collapsed and required cardiac compressions.
As the parents arrived in the wake of the baby’s death, they were questioned about if they wanted to bathe their baby. Johnson explained that as the baby’s mother “bathed her recently departed child, Letby came into the room and, in the words of the mother, was ‘smiling and kept going on about how she was present at Child I’s first bath and how much [the child] had loved it.'”
“A post mortem revealed that all the loops in the infant’s bowel were significantly dilated due to increased air content,” stated a report from The Daily Mail.
“We suggest that it is highly significant that children within the orbit of Lucy Letby persistently and consistently suffered unexplained collapses,” stated Johnson.
“Sometimes the evidence of her hand at work is more obvious than others and it is remarkable that on many occasions when children who had suffered unexpected spectacular and life-threatening collapses were removed from her orbit, they had exceptional recoveries,” he claimed.
