A WOMAN who was abused by Soham murderer Ian Huntley as a teenager says she has faced a lifetime of guilt after refusing to report him to cops.
The schoolgirls vanished on August 4, 2002, after attending a family barbecue.
They were lured into school caretaker Huntley’s home after he claimed his partner, the girls’ teaching assistant Maxine Carr, was in the property.
Two weeks later, Holly and Jessica’s burnt remains were discovered in a ditch at an air base 14 miles away at Mildenhall, Suffolk.
Speaking for the first time, Emma told the Mirror she lied to social services about her relationship with “first love” Huntley.
