Serial killer, Rose West, has reportedly been hit with a serious illness which could kill her.
Inside sources have said the notorious killer is ‘very sick’ after being struck with an unknown illness while in prison.
The 63-year-old is reportedly on her deathbed and has to be escorted to the prison medical centre for treatment.
An insider told the Daily Star, as reported by the Daily Mail:
She is very ill. Her medical records are closely guarded and she has a very small circle of staff and fellow inmates in jail, so hardly anyone knows exactly what’s wrong with her.
But the rumour is that it’s very serious and could even finish her off.
West’s life is planned to the letter, because her notoriety makes her very vulnerable to attacks from fellow inmates.
It also means that when she requires medical attention or prescribed drugs, the entire wing is locked down so she is not attacked while visiting the doctor or pharmacist.
Rose West and her husband Fred became infamous for the deaths of ten people between 1971 and 1987.
Her husband Fred committed suicide in prison while he was awaiting trial for the deaths of twelve young women.
Rose didn’t have any involvement in the first two murders, though she collaborated in the torture and murder of nine young women with him, between the years of 1973 and 1987.
She was also said to have murdered her 8-year-old step daughter in 1971.
Rose West was subjected to much abuse during her formative years at the hands of her father.
She began dating Fred West at the age of 15, when Fred was 28 years old.
Their modus operandi was established: they would pick up girls from bus stops before imprisoning them in their home for days before brutally killing them.
Only last week, Rose West’s nephew was found guilty of kidnapping and raping a 12-year-old girl.
38-year-old Steven Letts, drugged his victim with a cocktail of cocaine, cannabis and vodka after they met on the street.
He pleaded not guilty but was found guilty on counts of kidnapping and raping the young girl, in Gloucester Crown Court and is awaiting sentence.
Detective Constable Lindsay Tonkinson, of Gloucestershire Constabulary, praised the young victim’s courage.
I would like to thank the young victim who showed great courage and bravery in coming forward and for our partner agencies which provided invaluable assistance and support to the victim along the way.
This has been a difficult case for the young victim to relive in court and for the winesses who gave evidence during the trial.
We will strive to do everything we can to bring offenders to justice and Letts is due to be sentenced for his crimes later this month.
Meanwhile, the prison officers are working on moving Rose West to a prison medical ward where she’s not vulnerable to attacks from other inmates.
