Silent Scream by Yvonne Mason

It was a time of innocence, a time of hippies, flower children and the Age of
Aquarius. A time when young people felt free to roam about the countryside
hitchhiking without fear. A time when law enforcement was trusted by the people
they were sworn to protect and serve.
That time was shattered by one of law
enforcements own. His name was Gerard Schaefer. He was a former Wilton Manors,
Florida Police Officer who lied his way into the office of the Martin County
Florida Sheriff’s Office. He used his lie to continue to perpetrate his crimes
of torture and murder of young women who hitchhiked along Florida’s roads.

Gerard Schaefer shattered the lives of the families of these young girls and
destroyed the faith of the public in law enforcement. He killed without pity. He
tortured without conscience and he hid the crimes without thought.
not only destroyed the lives of as many as 34 young women, he kept trophies of
his kills, and he lived the crimes over and over again. He believed he was doing
the world and his victims a justice by ridding the world of the “whores” who
hitchhiked. Gerard Schaefer was a narcissistic psychopath who wanted his fifteen
minutes of fame. He believed he had earned it.
Florida Author, Yvonne Mason,
in her newest release Silent Scream, has captured not only the essence of evil
in Gerard Schaefer, she has also captured his brilliance. But more than that Ms.
Mason has finally given a voice to the Silent Screams of Gerard Schaefer’s
victims, the known and the unknown.
Ms. Mason who has a degree in Criminal
Justice and was a Bounty Hunter in Georgia before moving to Florida has given a
voice to such victims as Georgia Jessup and Susan Place, the two who were
discovered on South Hutchinson Island, April 1, 1973 seven months after they
disappeared on Sept 23, 1972 in a shallow grave in pieces. She has also given a
voice to Collette Goodenough and Barbara Ann Willcox who were killed in Jan 1973
and whose bones found four years later at C-24 Canal.
Ms. Mason has captured
the not only the pain, the agony and the suffering Gerard Schaefer’s victims
went through, she has captured the pain, the anger and the hurt which law
enforcement suffered at the hands of this killer.
Even after thirty four
years the ones who were in law enforcement at that time still haven’t forgotten.
They still carry the emotional scars of the heinous tortures and murders of
Gerard Schaefer on the innocent.
Retired FBI Roy Hazelwood writes after
reading Ms. Mason’s book: “Yvonne Mason has captured the true essence of Gerard
Schaefer, a deputy sheriff who enjoyed torturing and killing young women. It is
a gripping story and you should prepare to be disturbed. I guarantee that you
will find it difficult to put this book down.”
Retired Oakland Park PD
Detective Chuck Hemp who worked the disappearance of Jessup and Place wrote this
after reading Silent Scream: “When Gerald Schaefer used his badge and gun to
terrorize and kill rather than protect and serve he crossed a line that not only
snuffed out the lives of his victims but also affected the lives of their loved
ones and the police officers charged with investigating these crimes. In her
book “Silent Screams” Yvonne Mason has captured more than just the story, but
has also given voices to all of Schaefer’s unknown victims. I’m sure there are
Ms. Mason stated this “The victims no longer scream silently, they now
have a voice and with that voice comes peace.”
Silent Scream is a voice for
the victims. It is their way of never being forgotten and of also reminding each
of us that at any time or any place we also can become a victim.
