A Bradford woman tearfully spoke of her shock and revulsion as the realisation dawned on her that her ex-husband is probably a sociopathic serial killer. Yvonne Johnson shuddered as she recalled how she'd been taken in completely by her evil ex, to the extent that she shared a bed with him, frequently cooked his tea, and has borne three children by him.
"With hindsight, I should have known," she conceded. "It makes my flesh crawl just thinking about it. What makes it even worse is the fact that he's still out there killing innocent people willy-nilly, and the police let him get away with it. It's as if they're working in tandem. It's just too frightening for words."
Ironically, it wasn't the nefarious serial killing which brought the curtain down on the Johnson's marriage; it was Yvonne's adultery with her supervisor at work which prompted her ex-husband to consult a solicitor and initiate divorce proceedings.
"I had a lucky escape," she told friends. "It could have been me next. Or even the kids. He's the most evil deviant I've ever had the misfortune to get involved with. Trying to get child support out of him was literally like trying to get blood out of a stone. I had to set the CSA on him. He was living the life of Riley in that squalid room he rented off a workmate in a bad part of town while I was reduced to doing the family shop at Sainsbury's. And he wonders why I won't let him see the kids?"
Yvonne Johnson went on to reveal that West Yorkshire Police callously dismissed her revelations that her ex-husband was, and is to this day an active serial killer preying on prostitutes, schoolkids and taxi drivers in the metropolitan Leeds/Bradford area.
One serving officer, a high ranking detective speaking off the record, related that Johnson's allegation had been looked into, and confirmed that West Yorks Police hadn't recently found any dead bodies, and that there are no outstanding missing persons cases on their books at the moment relative to the case. All of which made it virtually impossible to present a valid prosecution case to the CPS.
"Frankly, I don't think there's anything in these allegations," he said. "Nobody's missing, and we aren't finding piles of bodies in scrapyards or floating face down in the canal, so there isn't really anything to investigate. If you ask me, this woman's just out to cause trouble for her ex because she feels guilty. It's an attempt to deflect attention from the exposure of her sordid affair, during the course of which, by her own admission she did it doggy style in the storeroom with her supervisor on countless occasions. Truth to tell, she's always been known round here as 'a bit of a goer' even down to giving our desk sergeant the come on. She's just not very credible."
Yvonne Johnson is sticking firmly to her story. She asserts that her ex-husband is so cunning in the commission of his heinous crimes that his victims are rarely missed, and their remains never discovered. Sensationally, she went on to allege that the former supervisor with whom she had consummated a clandestine affair in the storeroom at work, and who she has since split up with since he started boning an attractive 19 year old Lithuanian female workmate, is an evil paedophile. Adding that she's reported him to the police as well.
The ex-husband said in a brief doorstep interview that he is currently reunited with and cohabiting happily with his childhood sweetheart and that they plan to marry in the near future, effectively putting the whole Yvonne nightmare behind him.
As a conciliatory gesture to his ex-wife he said that he was applying for custody of his three children on the grounds that she is an unfit mother.
"I'll send her some flowers to show there's no ill feeling on my part," he said. "Preferably a bunch of fucking triffids."
