Evansville woman hopes story of surviving serial killer helps others

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — As the only known person to survive an attack by notorious serial killer Angel Resendiz, it seemed natural for Holly K. Dunn to title her book about it 20 years later “Sole Survivor.”

However, the Evansville woman wants others to know they don’t have to feel like sole survivors. They are not alone on their healing journeys, whether it is sexual assault or any traumatic life experience.

“I think anyone who survives sexual assault, you have a feeling of loneliness,” she said.

In the aftermath of her August 1997 assault, Dunn said she felt a sense of aloneness at having been assaulted by someone she had never met.

“Stranger sexual assault is the smallest percentage of sexual assaults. Usually, it is date or acquaintance rape that occurs,”

Michigan woman forgoes cancer treatment to have sixth chi


A Michigan woman sacrificed the chance to prolong her life to give birth to her sixth child.

Doctors removed Carrie DeKlyen’s feeding and breathing tubes on Thursday, a day after her daughter, Life Lynn, was born. DeKlyen chose to forgo clinical trials and chemotherapy to treat her brain cancer, since it would have meant ending her pregnancy.

“It’s a tough time — she’s hours away from passing as we speak,” Nick DeKlyen, Carrie’s husband and Life’s father, told The Associated Press by phone Friday from University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. “All of my family is here, and her family from Kentucky, Tennessee and Oklahoma. We’re just by my wife’s bedside, just waiting.”

Life Lynn was born prematurely, at 24 weeks and five days into the pregnancy and weighing 1 pound, four ounces (567 grams). Nick DeKlyen said his daughter is

Woman who killed pregnant woman, unborn child sentenced

A Milwaukee woman who was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, plus 10 years of extended supervision.

Shanika Minor was arrested in North Carolina in June 2016.

She pleaded guilty last month to the shooting deaths of a pregnant woman, Tamecca Perry, and her unborn child.

According to a criminal complaint, Minor shot Perry in March 2016 after a fight about loud music.

“I just want to apologize to her family, even if they don’t choose to accept my apology,” Minor said in court Thursday.

The victim’s family did not accept Minor’s apology

“She knew what she was doing. She lied about everything,” the victim’s mother, Cynthia Freeman, said.

Perry’s two other children, now ages 4 and 5, were outside the courtroom during the sentencing. Witnesses said they were running toward their mother when she was shot.

The prosecutor said there
