The Assault and Attack on Jennifer Schuett:
Elaine and Jennifer Schuett’s daughter Jennifer was brutally attacked in August of 1990 and left for dead in a field. It was a miracle that she made it through what had transpired, and she was instrumental in identifying the perpetrator. She was eight years old at the time and had been advised by her mother to sleep in her own bed. Jennifer had no clue a man would break into her room and abduct her. She will always remember August 9th as a pivotal day in her life. A man entered the room and led her away, leading her to believe that he was a spy. Schuett’s assailant put a knife to her throat and demanded to know if she was afraid when she began to question what was happening. He then reached up and grabbed the girl’s neck. After dragging her into the field, the man slit her throat and abandoned her there. The kids eventually tracked her down, and she was airlifted to the hospital. The little girl who was present at the time of the accident and saw her survive wrote down everything she could recall about the evening to aid the investigation team. The victim regained her ability to speak after losing it for almost two weeks.
Jennifer Schuett and Dennis Earl Bradford’s secrets:
Jennifer Schuett was speechless for a long following the incident, but she did manage to jot down the assailant’s name and the brand of cigarettes he smoked. The investigation team finally uncovered evidence that pointed to Dennis Earl Bradford as the perpetrator in September 2009. Before, the agency hadn’t been able to locate a possible clue because the technology simply wasn’t as advanced as it is now. The attacker’s true identity was finally uncovered 18 years after the crime. Once they had gathered enough evidence against him, the police hauled him into custody. Soon after, he confessed, but he committed suicide in prison in 2010, thus the case never went to trial. After whatever happened, Jennifer was harmed in more ways than one. The sexual attack rendered her infertile. However, a doctor in Texas used in vitro fertilization to help her have twins.
