Did Fred West Kill His Daughter: Frederick Walter Stephen West was an English serial murderer who committed at least 12 murders in Gloucestershire between 1967 and 1987, the majority of which was done with his second wife, Rosemary West. He was born in 1926 and died in 1987.
All of the victims were under the age of thirty. At least eight of these murders were carried out for the Wests’ sexual gratification, and the methods used included rape, bondage, torture, and mutilation. The victims’ dismembered bodies were typically buried in the cellar or garden of the Wests’ Cromwell Street home in Gloucester, which became known as the “House of Horrors.”
In addition to his own murders, Fred is suspected of having committed at least two others on his own, while Rose is suspected of having slain Fred’s stepdaughter Charmaine. In 1994, the pair was apprehended and accused of several offenses.
The night of January 1, 1995, Fred asphyxiated himself at HM Prison Birmingham, where he and Rose were being held on a combined murder charge of nine murders, and he was being held on a separate murder charge of three further murders. When Rose was found guilty of ten murders in November 1995, he was sentenced to ten life sentences with a full life order.
At the age of 16, Heather Ann was murdered by her parents in 1987, when she was 16.
In an attempt to conceal their crimes, the couple first claimed that their eldest daughter had accepted a position at a summer camp, before changing their tale to imply that she had gone away and eloped with another man.
In 1994, when police uncovered Heather’s grave in the garden of the ‘home of horrors,’ they were informed by Fred of the circumstances surrounding her death.
Nevertheless, Heather’s son Barry claimed in 2004 that he had witnessed Heather’s death when he watched Rose “stamp” on her head five times when he was seven years old.
The Daily Star said that he stated that she “didn’t move again.” Rose was frequently pregnant, and she gave birth to eight children in total.
Three children were born to her as a result of her prostitution, and five of her children were fathered by Fred. She has five children total.
Prior to meeting Rose, Mr West was married with another daughter, but he was murdered by the people who had murdered his first wife.
His stepdaughter, Catherine’s eldest child Charmaine, was also killed by Rose; he also had a biological daughter, Catherine.
He went on to have three more daughters — Heather Ann, Mae June, and Louise — with his long-time partner Rose, as well as two boys, Stephen and Barry, who are still alive.
Rose also had children with other men, including Tara, Rosemary Junior, and Lucyanna.
Heather was the final victim of the couple’s murder spree in 1987, which was tragically her death.
The couple’s house of horrors was discovered by the police when Heather went missing when she was 16 years old.
The hideous duo had strangled her and severed her head from her body. Police discovered her disfigured corpse in their Gloucester semi-truck, where they also discovered eight other victims, which shocked them.
