Brother of notorious English serial killer Fred West is planning to release a book on his infamous brother and lovely wife Rose and their House of Horrors. Fed up with people always getting it wrong, he wants to set the record straight on what really went on behind the doors of 25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester, England.
Doug West, 64, claims “Nobody knew Fred and Rose like I did. Nobody spent as much time with them over the years outside of their family.”
“Hardly any of the stuff you read about them in other books is right, which really annoys me. They are full of inaccuracies and get so much wrong. A book of my own would be a good opportunity to put the record straight.”
This charming couple tortured, raped, and killed at least 12 women and young girls over a 20-year period between 1967 and 1987, including their daughter Heather whose remains were found under their patio. Rose is also responsible for killing Fred’s stepdaughter Charmaine whilst he was incarcerated for theft.
“Fred was never actually tried in court, was he? The evidence was never pored over in detail and I’d like the opportunity to do that. But a book is something I’d have to have complete control over, to make sure it was my story, in my words and that my family were not put through any more hurt.”
Fred West always claimed that incest was a given in his family and that his father had incestuous relationships with his daughters. Fred also made claims that his mother was part of this, sexually abused him from the age of 12.
Fred West hung himself in his cell on January 1st 1995 whilst on remand however after confessing to the murders. Rose West is currently serving a life sentence, and the Home Secretary has ordered that she never be released.
So all this said, on the outside they’re a charming family really! Who wouldn’t want to set the record straight? This should definitely be a book to look out for because by the sounds of it, there is still a lot more stories to come out of the West family.Tags: book, Crime, Serial Killer, UK
