Is Lucy Letby Innocent or Guilty? What Is The Evidence? Here’s everything to know about her.

A 31-year-old woman, Lucy Letby has denied the allegations that she murdered eight babies during her time as a hospital nurse. She currently faces charges of the murder of eight infants and attempted murder of another 10.

Having been arrested in 2018, Lucy Letby allegedly committed all those murders between June 2015 and June 2016. She worked as a nurse in Countess of Chester Hospital in England.


Lucy Letby is innocent, at least until now. She will soon go on trial.

The 31-year-old former nurse is charged with eight counts of murder and also attempted murder of 5 other boys and 5 girls. Reports suggested that she committed these crimes from 2015 to June 2016.

The investigation has been going on for 3 years now and no conclusive evidence has come under exposure until now. However, there are bits and pieces of unusual moments and actions that need quite a justification.

Following her appearance in the Manchester Crown Court, she denied the charges against her. The trial is set for October 8, 2022. But there will be a pre-trial in January 2022 as well.


There aren’t substantial shreds of evidence that connect Lucy Letby to the murders until now.

But a lot of aspects come into play during a trial which also includes the mental and social behavior of the subject. And as of now, Lucy Letby is the only suspect.

Even though the evidence doesn’t yet point to Lucy Letby, they do imply that the infants were murdered. According to the post-mortem reports, the infants had unusual blotches on their legs and limbs.

The investigation started back in 2016 and is currently at its peak. And with the trial date being set for a year after, the case is going to be talked about a lot.

The Countess of Chester hospital handed the case to the police as their infant mortality rate was 10% higher than normal which led them to suspect foul play inside the institution itself.


Lucy Letby’s parents are yet to be revealed and understandably so.

Based in Chester, United Kingdom, Lucy grew up in the very locality. She is currently 31 years old.
