GLOUCESTER, ENGLAND — The nephew of notorious serial killer Rosemary West has been found guilty of kidnapping and raping a vulnerable 12-year-old girl.
Steven Letts, 38, met his young victim in Gloucester city center on March 6. Letts, who is the estranged son of Rosemary West’s brother Graham, then had sex with the child while holding her captive in his flat over a two-day period.
The exchange between Letts and his victim began when she asked him for a cigarette — and he responded by offering her a joint instead. The girl was with a social worker — who warned Letts that the girl was underage but, shockingly, let the girl leave with him.
The court heard that Letts and his victim went back to his flat, where he held her captive for two days and plied her with alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. After the girl got sleepy and laid down, Letts climbed in under her blanket and began “cuddling” the victim — before having sex with her.
The girl told the court that she wanted Letts to stop, but felt guilty asking because he had earlier provided alcohol and cocaine.
Letts’ crime was discovered after the girl asked a social worker “how long it’d take to find out if you are pregnant.”
Rosemary West was convicted of killing 10 women, and her husband Fred West was convicted of killing 12 — but according to authorities, the pair are thought to have killed up to 20 more.
