7:15 pm
escapes, authorities will try to catch them, but not charge them with an additional crime. >> it's the law that sets an effect of escaping is not a crime, but they can do another crime. for example, if they escape with the prison clothes, keeping those prison clothes is a crime unless they send the clothes back and in the past we had someone who escaped jumping out of the window. we get the clothes back and washed and cleaned. he didn't make any crime. >> even though belgium has one of the lowest crime rates, shawn schaefer's interview is one of the more unusual ones. we met him in the segregation unit in the mac mum security facility. 30 december, i killed my

7:22 pm
7:23 pm
it's not uncommon for inmates to share the grizzly details of their kr50i7crimes, rapists almost never do. this proved to be an exception. >> this inmate was every woman's worst nightmare. this is the guy we are all told to fear and defend ourselves against. >> i'm a serial rapist. i have been convicted on three separate occasions for rape. >> he was convicted of three rapes, but he told us he raped
7:24 pm
22 women total. i knew there were 19 other women out there who he had attacked and terrified. he wanted to remain anonymous because he was getting out soon. he didn't want any of these victims to see him because he would have to go back to prison. >> when we met him, he was coming up on a 44-year sentence and it wasn't his first time in prison. >> my first rape was in 1975. i picked up 13 years on that and i served two. i was released and lasted about a week. and again was picked up and charged with a rape. i was returned to the state penitentiary in 1982. 1986. i was release and i lasted on that parole for about two weeks.
7:25 pm
then i began again with the serial raping. >> in this interview he went into great detail about the preparations, tactics and execution of his crimes. while his comments are disturbing, they offer valuable insight into the mind of a dangerous criminal. >> before i started committing the rapes, i would start preparing the sites. between a week or two weeks to get set up. i would find isolated places on all four sides of a city, places with no houses within a given distance. each one of the locations i would have at least three escape routes. >> once the preparations are were made, he would look for the could have. >> shopping centers. it's a major hunting ground for me.
7:26 pm
laundry mats and places generally where they have parking lots. >> i felt value in doing this interview even though he wouldn't be identified, he gave us a break down of how he was able to perpetrate the crimes. for me, it was a true cautionary tale. >> i went just walking around the shopping centers waiting to slit the victim. >> women who were alone in the store so he could follow them and go back to the car and have no one there to help them. >> once i picked out a victim, i would follow them until they returned to the cars and pull a weapon and in my case, a knife. i would force them into the cars. >> what i took away from the information is to try to be vigilant and aware. particularly in a parking lot and particularly getting into your car. that's a common place for women to be attacked. >> how did you drive and keep
7:27 pm
them in the car? >> for the most part, yes, ma'am. they were terrorized. on a few occasions, i would force them down on the floorboard of the car where i could keep an eye on them. i would try to keep the speed at a fast drip so jumping out would not be an option. i would immediately have them strip down naked and force them to put their clothing in the handbags in the back seat. you never know what a woman has in her purse. they could have a pistol or a knife of their. mace. whatever. so that would be the first thing i would do. plus it keeps a female from if they are nude, they don't have a
7:28 pm
tendance t enency to run. another psychological factor. >> what was the knife? >> the knife was on me at all times. after i disrobed and fixing to commit sexual intercourse, i would have the knife stuck in the ground within reach. i would strip down and rape them. sometimes i would keep the victims anywhere from three to five hours at a time. >> seemingly he was bold about how he did his crimes because of the fact that he would reveal himself. these women would know who he is. the fact is he was a big guy. he had been in prison a while when we met him. i can only imagine when he was younger how much more powerful he was. also the way he was able to not
7:29 pm
get caught was the threat he imposed on every one of the victims. >> intimidation was the big play. i would literally after performing the rapes, the physical rapes, i would literally scare these women to death. >> coming up -- >> the motivation for becoming a serial rapist stems back to when i was 18. >> our interview continues. why are we so committed to keeping you connected? why combine performance with a conscience? why innovate for a future without accidents? why do any of it? why do all of it? because if it matters to you, it's everything to us. the xc60 crossover. from volvo. lease the well equiped volvo xc60 today. visit your local volvo showroom for details. it begins from the the second we're born.er.

going to last three rounds. back to lock up. >> during our stay at the penitentiary of new mexico, our producer conducted an interview with the rapist who would be returning to society. the inmate agreed to the interview on the condition of anonymity. what he had to say is disturbing. but provides a rare insight to the mind of a serial rapist. >> after performing the rapes, the physical rapes, i would scare these women to death. what i would do is go into a victim's purse and find address books and take the balance out of their purse and say okay, now i know where you live. i know where you work. i know where your kids go to
7:34 pm
school. if you ever report this to the police i will come back. i will kill you. i will kill your family. my threats were made as real as possible. nine times out of ten, they would try to reassure me that would never happen. >> when he decided he was done, he would drive his victim back to the parking lot where he kidnapped her and returned to his car and drive home. often with what he described as a trophy. earrings, watches, necklaces.
7:35 pm
let me recall. she is telling me about the situations, i couldn't help but flash on the women. how their lives had gone and had they been able to go on. >> my motivation for becoming a serial rapist, it was back to when they were willingly declaring war on society and decided this would be the ultimate rhyme against society that would earn me the most despicable reputation, if you will. i wanted to ruin my main because i hate my father. >> you have anger and hatred for your father and you victimize women. >> my motive was not to
7:36 pm
victimize the women, but performing the crime that is viewed by society as being detestable. does that clarify anything for you? i'm trying not to sound totally insane, but this is the motivation. >> i think you take your rage out on women. you seem to love your mother. >> i do. i do. >> when we met him, this inmate had completed the first six months of an intensive 16 month program. >> it's time for a change. when i woke up this time i will be 60 years old. i'm going to have that much longer left anyway. i want to enjoy it the best i can. >> this program helped him empathize with his victims and he said he does feel remorse.
7:37 pm
>> i know it sounds lame, but i would want them to know i am sorry for what i did. >> he apologized to his victims, but the problem with that is he is not making himself recognizable to his victims. he is not truly standing up and taking responsibility to the very people he hurt. >> i didn't hurt him physically. mentally is the question. they were pretty thoroughly frightened. >> you didn't hurt them physically? >> outside of the rape. i didn't beat on them or slice them up or cut them or harm them physically other than the sexual intercourse. >> he did hurt these women when he raped them emotionally, physically, psychologically he altered their lives.
7:38 pm
>> approximately one year after the interview, the inmate kpreeted his rehab program and came up parole. he was denied and had to remain in prison, but not for long. his 44-year sentence was reduced by approximately half due to good behavior, meaning he only had a year to serve before being released. >> i would be interested to know how he is doing and if he has gotten himself into any more trouble, but the problem with that is, he had 19 victims for which he was never caught. so there is no real way of knowing if he is acting out unless he gets caught. >> coming up -- a former prostitute's drug addiction leads to frightening consequences. >> you don't know how many men you infected with hiv. >> probably enough. and the most advanced vehicle stability system in the industry... ...you'll ride with a feeling of complete freedom
