The daughter of notorious British murderer, Ian Huntley, may not know her father, but she knows what he did.
She knows that he took the lives of two innocent schoolgirls in 2002, she knows he caused indescribable pain to their families. She knows enough not to want to call him ‘Dad’.
In a rare interview for Soham Revisited, a documentary to be screened on British television network Channel 5, Samantha Bryan said she has no interest in meeting her father, a man better known to the world as ‘the Soham killer’.
“If he was expecting to get some sort of message from me he’d be lucky to get one,” she said, according to The Mirror.
“He doesn’t even deserve to be known or called my biological father and he will never deserve to be called Dad.”
Huntley is currently serving a 40-year sentence for the murder of Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells nearly 15 years ago, in what became one of the UK's most infamous murder cases.
The 10-year-old girls were on their way to buy sweets in their hometown of Soham, England, when they disappeared on August 4, 2002.
