  • Emily Morris said the message read: ‘To Alvin, with love on your special day’ 
  • Ms Morris said the message is ‘freaky’ and ‘makes you feel ill looking at it’ 

Serial killer Lucy Letby wrote a ‘freaky’ message that ‘makes you feel ill’ inside a newborn’s christening book, a mother who has called for the death of her baby to be reinvestigated has revealed. 

Emily Morris’s one-month-old son Alvin was being treated at the unit where Letby worked at the Countess of Chester in 2013.

She said Letby had told her Alvin’s condition was deteriorating the night before he died and said it is almost like ‘she was hinting that she did something’.

Ms Morris, 35, from Deeside, Flintshire, said Letby had written a message inside her child’s christening book which read: ‘To Alvin, with love on your special day.’ 

‘It’s freaky. It makes you feel ill looking at it,’ she told the Daily Mail. Ms Morris and Alvin’s stepfather Mark Lewis also recently found a photo of Letby fussing over the baby during the christening which took place at the hospital.

The grieving mother said the nurse was constantly trying to touch him and lean over him during the intimate ceremony.

Ms Morris said the photo left her feeling ‘sickened’ and she has now called for the death of her baby to be reinvestigated after police concluded in 2018 that there were no suspicious circumstances.

Both Ms Morris and Mr Lewis saw the photo for the first time this week after it was found stored on a disc in a memory box that they were previously unable to download.

‘It shocked us. It’s really hard, to see a person who has done that to those babies next to you. It makes you sick,’ said Ms Morris.

‘You can see she is grabbing his blanket. I have told everybody that she did that and now there’s proof. That’s proof that she was with him.’ 

Ms Morris said Letby had written a message inside her child’s christening book which read: ‘To Alvin, with love on your special day.’ She told the Daily Mail: ‘It’s freaky. It makes you feel ill looking at it.’

Ms Morris first noticed Letby’s strange behaviour around Alvin, who had been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, during the christening which took place at the hospital.

She said the nurse was constantly trying to touch him and lean over him during the intimate ceremony.

‘Lucy Letby told us Alvin was deteriorating the night before he died. In the morning he was dead which is weird. It’s like she was hinting that she did something,’ she recalled.

‘She had him the night before… We’re saying it’s suspicious – she must’ve done something.’

Lucy Letby, 33, (pictured in custody) was sentenced to spend the rest of her life in prison last month for killing seven babies and trying to murder six more between 2015 and 2016

It comes as a chilling photograph has emerged of the killer nurse comforting a newborn as she poses as a poster girl for the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Smiling broadly in her blue nurse’s uniform, the convicted killer leans over the baby in a hospital cot with her hand placed on its stomach.

The image of Letby was emblazoned across an entire page in the 2012-2013 annual report for the Trust in Cheshire.

Ironically, the report boasts about the Trust being among just a few in the country which have achieved the highest levels of ‘safe care’.

This was not the only time the killer was used as a poster girl for the NHS – in 2013, she appeared on material promoting the hospital’s Babygrow appeal raising funds for a new neonatal unit.

In a staff profile piece promoting the department, Letby said: ‘My role involves caring for a wide range of babies requiring various levels of support. Some are here for a few days, others for many months and I enjoy seeing them progress and supporting their families.’

Letby, 33, was last month sentenced to spend the rest of her life in prison for killing seven babies and trying to murder six more between 2015 and 2016.

The nurse denied all 22 charges she faced during the ten-month trial at Manchester Crown Court.

Cheshire Police are now investigating whether Letby was already harming infants at the time the image was taken.

Detective Superintendent Paul Hughes of Cheshire Police said it was ‘committed to a complete and thorough investigation into the full period of time that Lucy Letby was employed as a nurse’.

‘This investigation remains ongoing, through a transparent and open-minded process,’ he said.

‘The families of all babies, who are part of this investigation, have been informed and are supported. We will of course provide a more detailed update when we can.’

The Department of Health and Social Care has ordered an independent inquiry into the circumstances around the deaths and how Letby was able to carry out her killing spree.
