The daughter of an evil serial killer thought about taking her own life as she feared she could kill like her mum.
Shianne Treanor was 13 when she learnt that mum Joanna Dennehy had savagely murdered three men during a 10-day deadly rampage.
The 37-year-old stabbed her three victims to death and seriously injured two others in 2013.
Shianne, who is now 21, said the revelation about her mum had a detrimental effect on her mental health after she ‘lost her senses’ when she heard the news.
She told The Sun : “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 first stabbed her housemate Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, before murdering John Chapman, 56, and her third victim was 48-year-old property developer Kevin Lee.
After she murdered Mr Lee she called accomplice, Gary Stretch, then 46, and sang the Britney Spears song Oops, I did It Again.
Dog walkers John Rogers and Robin Bereza were seriously injured after being attacked randomly in separate incidents by Dennehy.
Dennehy used a ‘zombie blade’ to stab her victim in a catalogue of murders that were so heinous she is one of just three women who have been handed down whole-life terms in the UK.
Evil Rose West, 67, who murdered 10 women and girls including her own daughter and stepdaughter was given a whole-life term in 1995.
The other was Moors murderer Myra Hindley who killed five children with her lover Ian Brady – she who died in prison at the age of 60 in 2002.
Shianne features in a documentary The Murderer And Me on Sky on Sunday.
She tells who her mum’s hunger for sex, drugs and drink made her childhood a misery and ruined Dennehy’s relationship with Shianne’s dad John Treanor.
