While in prison, serial killer Gerard Schaefer tried hard to impress his ex-girlfriend, Sondra London. While proclaiming innocence, he also wrote pornographic murder fiction that mirrored his crimes and inflated the number of people he killed. On March 21, 1989, he wrote London a letter that read, “I am, factually, a captain of the Dixie Mafia…I have, factually, the power to have you killed. I have, in the past, used these powers.”
Psychopathic deputy sheriff Schaefer, who killed as many as 36 girls and young women two at a time, was found with his throat slashed in his prison cell on December 3, 1995. He had been stabbed 42 times around his head and neck.
