Woman shares her story

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana woman who’s the only known survivor of an attack by a man linked to 15 killings has written a book to help other victims of sexual violence.

Holly K. Dunn of Evansville survived a 1997 attack by Angel Resendiz in Lexington, Kentucky. Dunn’s boyfriend was killed and she was raped, stabbed and left for dead.

Dunn released her book, “Sole Survivor,” last month, in which she recounts the attack.

Resendiz was linked to at least 15 indiscriminate killings near railroad tracks, resulting in his nickname “Railroad Killer” and a spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. His killing spree ended with a 1999 double-slaying in Illinois. He was executed in Texas in 2006.

Dunn said she wants other survivors of sexual violence to know they’re not alone.

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