SERIAL killer Rose West has been inundated with Mother’s Day cards from sick “fans”.
The monster, 66, serving life for murdering at least ten women and girls — including daughter Heather, 16 — with husband Fred, has them on display in her cell.
She recently transferred from maximum security Low Newton prison in Durham amid rumours of health concerns.
An insider at HMP New Hall, West Yorks, said: “None are from anyone she knows, as her seven surviving children cut contact long ago.
“But, like many notorious inmates, she had picked up a weird cult following.
“She always gets cards at Christmas but we were shocked to see ones from strangers calling her a good mother when she murdered her own girl.
“One even said, ‘To a special mum on this special day’ and ‘love you’. It’s all a bit strange.”
West – who is serving a whole life sentence – has put the cards on display in her cell at HMP New Hall ready for this Sunday's mum's celebration.
The Wests raped and tortured their victims before burying them at their home in Cromwell Street, Gloucs.
Her husband Fred, hanged himself in his cell while awaiting trial on New Years Day, 1995.
The pair abducted, tortured and raped the innocent women over a 20 year period.
The victims included the couple's eldest daughter Heather, who was killed in June 1987.
Her own son Stephen, now 45, spoke out about his mum in the lead up to Mother’s Day this week on a podcast where he revealed he had not spoken to the “evil” killer for 20 years.
He said: “She was the callous, the evil, spiteful, vindictive, manipulative person out of them.
“I cut contact with my mum. That was important. I had to.
“In 1999 she called me with hate and was blaming me for everything.”
“She said I should have died when I was born and all that sort of stuff. It was a disgrace.”
Prison insiders said West has kept “mainly to herself” since the move.
A source said: “She caused a bit of a stir when she came in. She’s probably one of Britain’s most famous inmates but she’s been quite quiet so far."
