Female serial killer from England who was convicted in 1995 of the murders of ten young women with her husband, Fred West.
Her parents divorced when she was in her teens, at which point she went to live with her paranoid schizophrenic, sexually abusive father.
Her Cromwell Street House-- the place where she and her husband carried out their murders-- was demolished in the mid-1990s.
She gave birth to eight children, five of whom belonged to her husband and fellow murderer, Fred West, and the other three of whom were the result of her work as a prostitute. Rosemary West's own father was one of her prostitution clients.
She and her husband, Fred West, were collaborators in crime. They found most of their victims at Gloucester bus stops and brought them back to their home where, after a period of days, they murdered them.
