Woman reveals how she lived with a serial killer for three years and knew she was next to die after finding his …

A WOMAN has told how she had a three-year romance with a serial killer before being left for dead in a pool of blood when he turned on her.

In 1994 Delia Balmer, now 67, was attacked with an axe and a rusty knife in a brutal attack by monster John Sweeney – who had already murdered a former girlfriend and dumped her butchered body in a canal.

Before the vicious attack, Delia had already endured horrific violence at his hands, including a week-long ordeal when Sweeney tied her to a bed in her Camden home as he repeatedly raped her and threatened to cut out her tongue with a kitchen knife if she screamed.

During her torture, he

‘I lived with serial killer for 3 years and knew I’d be his next victim …

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.

PRESTON — Authorities in New Hampshire recently released new video footage of a quadruple homicide suspect who once lived in Preston.

The video depicts the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California interviewing Robert “Bob” Evans during the investigation into the 2002 disappearance of his wife, Eunsoon Jun. At the time, he was living under the alias Larry Vanner.

Evans later pleaded guilty to Jun’s murder after her body was found in the crawlspace of their home. He died in prison in 2010.

The New Hampshire State Police released the 2002 video, and the law enforcement agency is looking for anybody who recognizes Evans, particularly through the mannerisms and choice of words he exhibited during the police interview.

Silas Duane Boston, a former resident of Sea View Rehabilitation Wellness Center of Eureka, was arrested and indicted earlier this month for the murders of three victims. One of the victims was his wife, Mary Lou Boston, the mother of several of his children.

Recently, when law enforcement looked into Mary Lou’s 1968 disappearance, new information surfaced about Silas Boston’s alleged involvement in the murders of a young British couple–Christopher Farmer and his girlfriend, Peta Frampton. Boston allegedly hogtied them and threw them off his yacht where they drowned in 1978 off the shores of Belize in the Caribbean Sea.

Boston’s sons claim to have witnessed the events that led up to the tourist couple’s death. According to Vince and Russell Boston, Silas’s sons, the two British tourists had paid Boston to take them sailing on his yacht.
