Rifle found in alleged East Feliciana serial killer’s home matches bullets from 2 shootings, arrest warrant says

Investigators have matched bullets from two fatal shootings to a rifle found inside the home of alleged East Feliciana serial killer Ryan Sharpe, who was arrested last week in those two shootings and two others that have occurred in the Clinton area since July, according to an arrest warrant filed Wednesday by the East Feliciana Sheriff’s Office.

An analysis by the Louisiana State Police crime lab determined that bullets from the killings of Carroll Breeden, 66, and Brad DeFranceschi, 48, were fired from the rifle, the warrant says. Investigators had previously matched the bullets themselves but had not yet announced their connection to a particular weapon.

Officials said in the warrant that Sharpe confessed to killing Breeden and DeFranceschi in addition to Thomas Bass. He also confessed to shooting 47-year-old Buck Hornsby, who was wounded but survived. All four men were shot outside during the day within 25 miles of each other

‘I lived with serial killer for 3 years and knew I’d be his next victim when I found his murder kit under the bed’

Lying bloodied and battered on her own doorstep, Delia Balmer was convinced she was exhaling her final breaths.

Moments earlier, her ex-boyfriend was hacking at her body with a wooden axe and a rusty knife before leaving her for dead.

Sadistic John Sweeney had already butchered a former girlfriend, before dumping her remains in a canal.

And after his attempted murder of Delia, he went on to kill another girlfriend, before chopping her body into more than a dozen pieces, while on the run from police.

Detectives have still not located the whereabouts of three other women who had a relationship with Sweeney, fearing they, too, may have met the same grisly fate.

Against all odds, Delia survived the frenzied attack.

But she doesn’t see herself as the lucky one. In fact, she wishes she was dead too.

“As far as I’m concerned, I have died,” she says.

Gesturing at her body, she adds: “This is not me.

A real dead body was found on the set of a new show about serial killers



“Rellik.”
BBC
One


Any TV thriller about a serial killer is obviously going to be
telling some dark stories, but one would hope that such stories
would remain solely on the script pages. That’s apparently not
the case when it comes to the BBC’s new thriller “Rellik,” which
had to halt production when an actual corpse was found on the
location that was to serve as the set for an in-production
episode.

East London’s Cambridge Heath Park was to be

The filming of BBC serial killer drama Rellik has been marked by a series of strange coincidences, including police finding a real body on the show’s set.

UK police have found a dead body on the set of a BBC drama about a serial killer.

Filming on thriller series Rellik was halted when the body was found, turning the show’s east London set into a genuine crime scene.

UK media report the cadaver was found by police just before Rellik‘s crew arrived to shoot a scene featuring a fake corpse.

The crew were shooting in Cambridge Heath Park, London.

Nine women found dead, two still missing: Nearly 30 years later, the mystery of the New Bedford Highway Serial …

The first body turned up in July of 1988, about 30 feet from the road on northbound Route 140 in Freetown, Massachusetts. A motorist who had stopped to relieve herself on the Sunday of the July Fourth weekend came upon the partially clothed, unrecognizable corpse, a bra around its neck – and investigators who soon arrived on the scene could tell the body had been there for months.

What they couldn’t have guessed, however, was just how frequent such grisly discoveries were about to become.

That body, identified five months later in December 1988 as Debra Medeiros, marked the first in a series of killings that would come to be attributed to the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer. Nine women were found, two remain missing to this day – and the murderer has never been caught.

The deaths are the subject of a new book by journalist Maureen Boyle

‘American Ripper’: DNA Reveals Identity of Body Found in H.H. …

After more than a century of speculation, the question surrounding who was buried in H.H. Holmes’ grave has finally been answered. 

In the season finale of the History Channel’s ‘American Ripper’ series, an investigation into whether H.H. Holmes, born Herman Webster Mudgett, was also Jack the Ripper, Holmes’ grandson Jeff Mudgett compares the DNA found in Holmes’ grave to his own. 

Holmes, the murderer believed to have terrorized Chicago during the 1893 World’s Fair, confessed to over two dozen murders, though some believe the body count is much higher

What is undisputed is that Holmes operated a building at 63rd and Wallace. The so-called “murder castle” is said to have been equipped with gas chambers, hallways to nowhere, even a crematory. 

When Holmes was finally arrested in Philadelphia, newspaper reports at the time indicated he may have pulled off one final swindle – escaping death

True name of serial killer behind bodies found in barrels revealed

Authorities on Friday unveiled the true identity of a serial killer who used an alias while he murdered five people tied to two New Hampshire cold cases.

The man who killed a woman and three children and stuffed their bodies into barrels near Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown was called Bob Evans locally, but his real name was Terry Peder Rasmussen, originally of Colorado, according to DNA evidence.

Rasmussen died of natural causes in 2010 in a California prison while serving out a sentence for killing a woman whom he said was his wife, Eunsoon Jun.

The state attorney general’s office believes that Rasmussen is also responsible for the 1981 disappearance and likely murder of a Manchester woman, Denise Beaudin.

The identities of the woman and three children found in Allenstown remain unknown, decades after the first two bodies — a woman and elementary school-age girl — were discovered in a 55-gallon drum
