Nurse Re-Arrested on Suspicion of Murdering Eight Babies After 2 Years of Detective Work.
A nurse has been re-arrested on suspicion of murdering eight babies and trying to kill another nine at a hospital in Cheshire. Police said they have re-arrested a healthcare professional, understood to be nurse Lucy Letby, who was previously arrested in 2018 and 2019. The arrest comes more than three years after an investigation into a number of baby deaths and non-fatal collapses at the neonatal unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital was opened.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Hughes of Cheshire Police said: ‘In that time a dedicated team of detectives have been working extremely hard on this highly complex and very sensitive case doing everything they can as quickly as they can to identify what has led to these baby deaths and collapses.’
Detective Hughes said the investigation was ‘extremely challenging’. ‘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,’ he said.
The nurse was bailed pending further enquiries and re-arrested a year later over the same crime, as well as in connection with three more attempted murders.
