Prison suicide pact gone WRONG! Notorious serial killer Joanna Dennehy, girlfriend found soaked in blood
The couple was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where both their injuries were treated by the medical staff
Notorious serial killer Joanna Dennehy, it is believed, attempted to take her own life in prison after she allegedly made a gruesome suicide pact with her girlfriend. The 35-year-old had her throat slit, while her girlfriend was found with her wrists cut.
A source is reported to have said: "When the guards found them they were entwined on the floor, which was covered in blood. They think they need splitting up now to make sure it doesn’t happen again." The couple was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where both their injuries were treated by the medical staff. Once they got back inside the prison, however, Dennehy tried to commit suicide a second time but failed. It has been reported that she is now being cared for by medics.
A spokesperson for the prison told The Sun that they could not comment on the condition of the prisoners. The infamous serial killer is one of two female prisoners who is serving a life sentence in the UK. Dennehy was sentenced for stabbing three men to death over a span of 10 days in March 2013 before she stabbed two others. Criminology experts have described the woman as being "pure evil," and the woman from Peterborough said that she had committed the killings because it had been "moreish and fun."

The bodies of her victims had been discovered in ditches in Cambridgeshire. The first body was of 31-year-old Lukasz Slaboszewski, a man from Poland whom Dennehy had met a few days before she murdered him. She had convinced him to meet up with her by subtly implying that they would have sexual intercourse. Instead of the sex, however, she stabbed him in the heart and dumped his body unceremoniously. The week after that, 56-year-old John Chapman, a veteran of the Falklands war, was stabbed to death. Later that same day, she killed her lover and landlord, 48-year-old Kevin Lee. His body was found the next day in a sequined dress with stab marks across his neck and chest.
It had been reported that the serial killer initially wanted to murder nine men totally so that she could be like notorious killers Bonnie and Clyde. Dennehy, however, was caught two days later. She fled when the authorities began a triple murder investigation on her. Justice Spencer told Dennehy at the Old Bailey during the sentencing: "Although you pleaded guilty, you’ve made it quite clear you have no remorse. You are a cruel, calculating, selfish and manipulative serial killer."
The Sun revealed in 2017 that Dennehy had boasted to the other women prisoners that she had murdered her fourth victim. She had allegedly said that the unknown victim was also a man but the Ministry of Justice had said at the time that they found "no evidence" to support her claims.
