They Shoot Mentally Ill People: My Sister, The Killer Part 2

This is part 2 of our conversation with Mary and Katie. If you haven’t yet, go back and listen to part 1, My Sister, The Killer.

The story of how Anna Horneshaw came to murder her housemate picks up with her family begging the mental health services for help. Even Anna herself pleaded, “I’m suicidal and homicidal, please admit me.” With the risk of a violent outburst rising, the family was too terrified to call the police, because they shoot mentally ill people. Part 2 delves into why help never came, Anna’s sentencing, and how the years in prison has changed her life.
