How Shianne Treanor found out mum was a serial killer

The daughter of a serial killer has revealed she considered taking her own life for fear of turning into her mother.

Joanna Dennehy, 37, became one of Britain’s most savage murderers during a ten-day rampage in 2013 — stabbing three victims to death and seriously injuring two others.

Daughter Shianne Treanor, 21, revealed her mental health deteriorated the moment she was told of her mum’s horrific crimes aged 13.

Speaking in Sky documentary The Murderer And Me, she said: “I lost all my senses and fell to the floor crying. The first thing I said was, ‘Will I turn into her? Will that be me?’

“I have suffered from mental health issues — from eating disorders to self-harming to depression, anxiety, paranoia.

“I thought because I was going to turn into her, ‘Maybe I should end it now, get it over and done with, so I don’t hurt anybody’.”

Dennehy’s crimes — often using a zombie blade — were so horrific she is one of only three women in the UK jailed for whole-life terms.

The others were Rose West, 67, and Moors murderer Myra Hindley, who died in 2002 aged 60.

Dennehy stabbed to death property developer Kevin Lee, 48, Pole Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, and John Chapman, 56, in Peterborough in England, dumping their bodies in ditches.

After her last killing, she called accomplice, Gary Stretch, then 46, and sang the Britney Spears song Oops, I did It Again.

John Rogers and Robin Bereza survived attacks by Dennehy.

Shianne also tells in the documentary how her mum’s hunger for sex, drugs and drink made her childhood a misery and wrecked her relationship with her father John Treanor.
