14-Year-Old Shocked By Discovery She Made While Researching Serial Killers

Samantha was just 14 when she learned the true identity of her biological father as she saw a picture of him when working on a classroom project. She wept in heartbreak and anger when she realized her father was notorious child killer Ian Huntley, who murdered two young girls almost 14 years ago.

Today, at the age of 18, Samantha has decided to step forward to tell the world who she really is. She says she will prove that she is as different from Huntley as it is possible for anyone to be.

Where Huntley took innocent lives, she plans to save them as she is training to be a paramedic.

Samantha also wants to pay tribute to the man who was her 'real' father, who took her mother in after Huntley’s horrific abuse.

She went on to explain that she found out about her genetic heritage when she was assigned to write a project on Huntley, and she found a picture that instantly made it clear Huntley was her genetic father.

“It was like being thumped in the chest,” she notes in an interview. “I began to shake, I couldn’t stop the tears.”

Samantha says she is determined not to be ashamed or embarrassed about her father. Huntley has nothing to do with her.

“I try not to even say his name, as to do that is to acknowledge his existence,” she says with emotion. “I hate him. He’s never been my dad, he’s nothing more than a sperm donor. To know he is genetically connected to me sickens me. I’m speaking out, as I refuse to be ashamed for existing, otherwise I’d become just another of his victims. To acknowledge him as anything else would be to give him a power I will never let him hold over me.”
