Serial Killer Joanna Dennehy Is Still Manipulating Men Whilst In Prison

Serial killer Joanna Dennehy, described as 'Britain's Most Dangerous Woman' for killing three men over the course of a 10 day spree, is allegedly still trying to ensnare more victims from prison.

Dennehy is one of only a handful of women who are currently serving whole life sentences in prison, she's currently incarcerated in Surrey's HMP Bronzefield.

However, a new documentary that aired on ITV last night claims that she is writing letters to men on the outside trying to manipulate them.

The host of the documentary, Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid, said on the programme that one of Dennehy's male admirers even proposed marriage to her.

Reid told the viewers of the show: "I have seen letters she has written to men outside prison, winning them over with intimate details of her life and teasing clues about her crimes.

"It seems Joanna Dennehy may never stop manipulating men."

The 36-year-old was jailed in 2014 after she was found guilty of the murders of 31-year-old Lukasz Slaboszewski, 48-year-old Kevin Lee, and 56-year-old John Chapman.

Only two other women have ever been told by a judge that they will spend the rest of their entire lives behind bars - you've probably heard of them - Myra Hindley and Rose West.

On the show - entitled Joanna Dennehy: Serial Killer - Reid explored Dennehy's crimes and motives through footage, interviews, documents, and reports.

The killer, who stabbed the three men to death and dumped their bodies in ditches around Peterborough, was shown on the show displaying some of her psychopathic qualities at the police station following her arrest.

She claims in the footage that 'attempted murder and murder is nothing'. She then adds: "It's like going down for a Sunday roast, easy."

Meanwhile, in the documentary, Reid continued: "You'd expect a wave of realisation coming over her that she is now going to face justice for this horrific brutality.

"Not at all. Not a moment of it. 'She doesn't show any remorse, she's revelling in what she's done. It's appalling behaviour but a sign of the psychopath that she is."

Forensic psychiatrist Jeremy Coid also told the show: "She's extremely seductive. She has a whole series of tricks. There are some things you might see in a prostitute in a bar who will use a similar type of behaviour.

"She's flirting with the police officer. He's slightly embarrassed by her. He looks down, she gives him an extra-long stare, she compliments him.

"She runs her hands through her hair. She's reeling him in."
