A devastated mum has recalled the heartbreaking moment she banged on a hospital window to try and wake her daughter up after she was savagely attacked by a coke-fuelled teen killer. 

Samantha Madgin, 18, had recently become a new mum when, while out with friends enjoying her first night out since giving birth in 2007, she was stabbed 10 times and  bled to death at the scene in a savage, unprovoked attack in Wallsend, North Tyneside. 

Killer Jordan Jobson was just 15-years-old when she attacked Samantha in a frenzy after binging on alcohol and drugs.

In Quest Red’s Britain’s Deadliest Kids, Samantha’s heartbroken mother Alison recalls arriving at hospital to see her daughter.

‘I’ll always remember thinking that they’ve definitely made a mistake because Samantha wouldn’t even be in that situation where she could get stabbed,’ she explains. ‘But as soon as I got the hospital I knew, there were police everywhere. I could tell by their faces that it was serious.’ 

‘I still didn’t expect them to say that she’d gone. We were only allowed to see her through a glass screen,’ she explains. ‘I just remember banging on the glass, trying to get her to wake up.’

Samantha’s life took an unexpected but happy turn when she fell pregnant, giving birth to her son Callum in May 2007 at the age of 18. 

Despite the good news, Alison reveals that she had premonitions that something bad was going to happen. 

‘It was such a weird feeling, I used to say to my friends that I’m sure she’s going to die giving birth, I had this horrible gut feeling all the time,’ she says. ‘I had this horrible feeling something bad was going to happen.’

Settling into life as a new mum, Samantha decided to have her first day out since the birth of her son on the 2nd August 2007. 

As her friend James Patterson remembers, she had spent the day at the seaside with friends before retiring to his house in Wallsend in the early evening.  

When Samantha and her friends decided to head home, they were approached by a group of men, one of which was Jordan Jobson’s boyfriend.

‘They were just chatting, and four people went passed and one of Samantha’s friends made a remark,’ Alison explains. 

Confronted by two of the strangers, a fight broke out. As Samantha tried to break up the scuffle, Jobson, armed with a serrated bread knife, ran out of a nearby flat and attacked her. Jobson’s frenzied attack proved to be devastating. 

‘It wasn’t just an attack where she stabbed someone the once, she kept going and going and didn’t stop until Samantha died,’ Samantha’s sister Carly reveals.

As Jobson and the two men fled, James, alerted by others, ran to the scene, where he found Samantha bleeding heavily on the floor. 

‘She was just lying there on the floor. I didn’t realise how bad it was at the time, she was just lying there motionless,’ her friend James Patterson recalls. 

‘The ambulance, it turned up. As they were working on her it looked like she took a breath and I thought they’d brought her back to life. But obviously I think it was her last breath leaving her body.’

Among her 43 separate injuries, Samantha suffered 10 stab wounds. The fatal wound severed a major artery near her heart.

Given the news that Samantha had been stabbed, Alison dashed to the hospital, believing her daughter was still alive.

As an emotional Carly recalls, ‘no one actually told us that Samantha had died.’ 

It wasn’t until the next morning that Alison and the family were able see Samantha’s body.  

Jordan Jobson admitted killing Samantha, but denied murder, claiming that she had no memory of the attack after binging on vodka and cocaine.

‘She said that she couldn’t remember what she’d done, she talked about how much she had drunk and how she’d been taking drugs,’ Sophie Doughty notes. 

But five days after Samantha’s death, Jobson was charged with her murder. Brought to the magistrate’s’ court in Newcastle, Alison came face-to-face with Jobson for the first time. 

‘I was totally shocked to see that it was a young girl,’ Alison recalls. ‘She just looked like a normal 15-year-old girl, but then when I looked into her eyes, I could see the evil in her.’

For Samantha’s sister Carly, it was Jobson’s seemingly clear lack of remorse that was the most disturbing thing for her. 

‘She sat as if she was just on a shoplifting charge, she was never remorseful for anything she had done,’ she recalls. 

Jordan Jobson was found guilty of Samantha Madgin’s murder and sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 15 years. She could be free by the time she turns 30. 

‘I did feel a sense of relief that she was found guilty,’ Alison remembers. ‘This is the time now where we need to get on with our lives the best we can.’ 

And as Alison continues, she has taken measures to remember Samantha in her own way. 

‘We decided to start a charity to help victims of not just knife crime but of violent crime,’ she explains. ‘Raising awareness, educating young people, telling them Samantha’s story, that’s what we’re continuing to do now.’

‘We are the result of someone carrying a knife and using a knife, either to cause harm or to kill somebody, and I feel like now, because that we are doing this, Samantha’s Legacy, that Samantha is still here and she still has a purposes in life. Her purpose is now to try and make a change to young people.’
