An Excerpt from Silent Scream

for updated cover front2

This is an excerpt from Silent Scream. It is one of Schaefer’s writings that he said was fiction. However, it is not fiction, it is the confession of the brutal torture, and murder of one of his victims. IF you want to know which one you have to read the book. Gerard Schaefer was more than a monster. There is no word to begin to describe this man and the evil he perpetrated. If you have not yet watched Most Evil on the Investigation Discovery Channel you need to- watch for it on your TV Listings. It has played several times and will play again. If you have watched it- then this excerpt will make sense to you.

“I was absolutely smitten by this sexy whore. She was lively, intelligent, and had a sensuous figure. I was enchanted. I wanted our assignation to be special. I went right out and bought her a brand new rope. I knew she’d look exquisite swinging at the end of it. I took great care in selecting it. As the date approached, I called her to confirm our evening together. I instructed her on what to wear. I wanted to see her in pink and black. She had long blonde hair fixed in ringlets that would look so nice against a
black evening dress. Black heels and stockings with a garter belt. Pink bra and panty. A frilly brief. She assured me she’d look her best for me. Never before had I been so taken with a whore. I was furious. She was seducing me, and I was helpless before her daunting sexuality. She would have to suffer for that. Yes, suffer. I drove out to Davie and purchased an excellent horsewhip. I’d put her to the lash before hanging her! She’d pay for her seduction!”

If You Missed Last Night’s Show

for updated cover front2

If you missed last night’s show in Investigation Discovery you missed an excellent show. The show was called Most Evil and the Narrator took three serial killers and rated them as to who he felt was the MOST EVIL. Schaefer won hands down as I knew he would. This show will be shown again on Jan 10th at 10:00am here is the link http://www.investigationdiscovery.com/tv-shows/most-evil/tv-schedule.htm

The victims of Schaefer who I refer to as my girls are finally getting their voice in a big way. This show was shown at 10:00 pm, 1:00 am and again at 5:00 am – And it will be shown many more times as it begins to loop on the station.

Gerard Schaefer was an evil evil man. He was worse than a monster- he has no remorse, no conscience and he believed that was he did was right and that the victims really wanted to die. Please continue to give the girls a voice buy the book – but remember that this book is not for everyone. If you cannot handle facts, raw evil and things that will make you sick inside then this book is not for you. I do not gloss over the evil he perpetrated on the girls it would be an insult to do so. You will not read about what their favorite color was, who their current boyfriend was, what their dreams were or any of the other stuff that usually takes up a true crime page. This is the story of the horror they suffered at the hands of a man so evil he was even murdered in prison.
This book includes some of his writings which he said was fiction but was really confessions of the crimes he committed.

Bottom line if you decide to read this book- read it with an open mind understand it is not a pretty book- understand it is filled with horror- pain- death- torture and loss. Many lives were affected by the crimes, not only the lives of the victims- but the lives of their families, friends and even the people who investigated and prosecuted this evil man.
Even though the girls are no longer with us- they mattered- they lived they loved and were loved- their loss affects us all.

The documentary will be released sometime after January of next year. It has taken seven years for the girls to not only be heard but to be seen as well. Schaefer was an evil monster who destroyed so many lives. I will keep you updated as to the time and day.

The Next Phase of the TV Show

These are the nine known victims of Gerard Schaefer

These are the nine known victims of Gerard Schaefer

for updated cover front2

The next phase of pre- production has begun for the show which will be shown on the Investigation Discovery Channel – The Actual show is called Most Evil. These are the stories of crimes that have been committed by some of the most evil people out there. The story is one I have been telling for seven years. That is the one of Gerard Schaefer’s victims. My book Silent Scream is that story.

Today I signed the releases and next week the producers will be down here in Florida for the interviews. It is exciting and surreal. For years I have been talking about the victims, telling their story and putting up with those who did not understand why I wrote the book the way I wrote it. Some have said it is too raw, others have wondered why I didn’t sanitize it and others wondered why I didn’t talk about what high school they went to, their boyfriends, etc. The reason is simple. That was not what they wanted me to write about. They wanted me to write about the horror they suffered at the hands of a man who had no conscious. A man who tortured and killed because it gave him power. A man who sought out his victims like most of us seek out the perfect steak at a grocery store.

Gerard Schaefer was the first serial killer in Florida and he would have continued his reign of terror if two girls had not gotten away because he got sloppy. The victims deserve for their voices to be heard and now they will be seen. I can promise this show will not be pretty nor will it be for the faint of heart.

There are more victims that just the ones who were murdered. The families, the investigators, friends and even strangers became victims of Gerard Schaefer.

For those of you who blasted me and told me this book was beneath you- who said that it didn’t tell a story, well as you can see you were wrong. For those of you who understood what I was doing and where I was going, you will want to watch this show and I will keep you informed. The girls are being heard and seen.

The Second Phase of Pre Production of the Documentary has Taken Place

for updated cover front2

These are the nine known victims of Gerard Schaefer

These are the nine known victims of Gerard Schaefer

For seven years I have worked toward not only giving the victims of Gerard Schaefer a voice, I have wanted them to be visual as well. The reason is simple. All over the internet Schaefer’s face, videos and other “treasures” are plastered like some big celebrity. He is not nor will he ever be a celebrity. He was and continues to be a monster who took the lives of innocents simply because he could. What he did was beyond the pale. He had no remorse, or feelings of guilt. In fact quite the opposite. He lived for the fame and misguided power it gave him right up until the day he was murdered in prison.

In all of this the victims- and not just those who lost their lives- but the families and friends have not only been forgotten they have been totally pushed aside. This is not the way it is supposed to be. They are to be remembered always. Silent Scream is just that a remembrance. A testimony to the fact that they lived and more so that they were so horribly tortured and murdered to satisfy the power lust of Schaefer.

Well, after seven years the girls now will be seen as well as heard. Investigation Discovery is doing a documentary about them. It will be shown on the show “Most Evil.” This is the worst of the worst of criminals and the crimes they committed. The Investigation Discovery Channel has copies of all my research as well as the book. I have been interviewed once and will be again when they come to Florida along with others who were involved with the investigation and prosecuting of the Schaefer.

There have been several people who when they read the book were not only appalled by it they hated it. The reason is simple- it is the raw un-sanitized facts of what Schaefer did to his victims. You might ask why I chose to write it so raw. That is also easy to answer. I wanted the reader to understand a small portion of what his victims had to endure before they were murdered. How one had to watch while he tortured and killed the other knowing she would be next. Schaefer used FEAR as his mental weapon of choice.

Sure I could write about what school they went to, how many friends they had or how popular they were. But what good would that have done? What kind of voice would it have given them? The answer NONE. It would have been just another fluff piece and the girls would have still remained forgotten. Once you read this book you will not ever forget them. They will stay with you whether you hate the book or love it. The girls will be forever in your soul.

My hope is that the documentary will follow that line of thinking. That it will show the horror the girls suffered, the FEAR of knowing they would die an unspeakable death. The do not deserve to be forgotten. Their life was cut short to soon because a monster believed he was their savior.

If you read the book read it with an open mind- think about how you would feel if it were your child, your girlfriend, wife, mother or sister. Think about the pain the families suffered not knowing what happened to their daughter. Some of these bodies have never been found. The families still live in limbo because they never got to say goodbye.

This is their story not mine. It is their nightmare- their pain and their deaths. Be kind to them, they deserve the kindness. Remember them they deserve the remembrance- last but not least do not judge but instead help give them peace.

The Silent Scream Train has Pulled Out of the Station

for updated cover front2

For those of you who don’t know the Investigation Discovery Channel is doing a show on my book Silent Scream the story of the victims of Gerard Schaefer Florida’s first serial killer.

Yesterday July 24th was the first interview. There are more to follow.

This story has been a long time coming. The victims of Schaefer have been silent for too long. It is now time for their voices to be heard. I have long believed that they drive this train. When it is time for them to take their story in a new direction they make it happen.

It has been seven years since the release of the book. It has taken this long for the girls to decide that they need to be seen as well as heard. They are no longer screaming silently, they have a voice and that voice will be heard.
