Sick trophies kept by Brit murderers as cops find grim notes in Letby home

Serial baby killer Lucy Letby kept sickening “souvenirs” of her tiny victims – just like other evil British murderers who came before her.

The warped nurse, 33, is Britain’s most prolific child killer after murdering seven babies.

Her favourite method was injecting air bubbles into the bloodstreams of the tots.

And the monster kept “trophies” inside her Cheshire home where pictures hung on the walls with quotes like: “Shine bright like a diamond.”

Cops also found boxes of evidence in her bedroom including more than 250 handover sheets and resuscitation notes of some babies who collapsed or died under her care.

She also had a photo of a condolence card she sent to the parents of a baby girl she murdered.

Cowardly Letby, who refused to leave her cell to be sentenced, was given a whole life order for every offence, the most severe punishment available in the UK.

With this in mind, we looked at other killers who couldn’t help but keep “trophies” after taking lives.

Dennis Nilsen

Dennis Nilsen often draws parallels with American Jeffrey Dahmer who also stashed gruesome “trophies” in his home.

And former British Army man Nilsen offered his male victims food and a place to stay.

There, inside his North London flat, he strangled them unconscious and drowned them.

But instead of getting rid of the evidence entirely, he dismembered body parts and left them in his flat for months.

Cops eventually found a skull, a section of torso and bones in a tea chest when they searched the property.

He was charged with six counts of murder and two of attempted murder before dying behind bars in 2018 having served 34 years.

Harold Shipman

Harold Shipman, who was chillingly nicknamed Dr Death, was responsible for more than 200 of them.

The cold-eyed predator injected patients with lethal doses of morphine before stealing their savings.

But according to the police, jewellery worth an estimated £10,000 was found inside his home in Hyde after his arrest.

Valuable and sentimental items included rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Some belonged to his wife Primrose while cops said they suspected others were stolen from his victims.

These bits of jewellery, suspected of being his “trophies”, were later auctioned by the Asset Recovery Agency.

In 2004, Shipman hanged himself in prison where he was being held for 15 murders.

Stephen Griffiths

Stephen Griffiths – AKA the Crossbow Cannibal – is responsible for murdering at least three women.

He was obsessed with serial killers and even specialised in 19th century murders while studying for a masters at Bradford University.

His victims were sex workers and he used a crossbow to callously take them out.

He dismembered the women and he reportedly took photos as “trophies” after they were dead.

Griffiths, who told cops he ate one victim because it was “part of the magic”, even filmed the butchering of Shelley Armitage in April 2010 before he lost his phone on a train.

The appalling footage was then viewed several times before it was eventually handed into the police.

He is now in his 50s and has made numerous suicide attempts while serving his life order in prison.

Fred and Rose West

Wicked couple Fred and Rose West used to live in Gloucester in a home dubbed the House of Horrors.

They even buried their daughter Heather, 16, in the back garden after killing her.

Fred took his own life before he was due to face trial for 12 murders while Rose, who remains locked up, was sentenced for 10 murders.

They reportedly kept “trophies” of some of their victims who they dismembered and stuffed into holes in the ground of their garden and patio.

Kneecaps, toes and finger bones were their “souvenirs” of choice, despite the body parts never being found.

Their home on 25 Cromwell Street has since been demolished.
