    The article should mention that Clearwater to Jacksonville is over 200 miles. The girl was a prisoner in his car for 4-5 hours before they even reached his apartment. It's a miracle she escaped, but he never should have had the opportunity to hurt another human being after he killed Linda Fida.

    He was sentenced to life in prison for Fida's murder in 1976, and was paroled in 1985. Prison reform my you-know-what. Less than ten years for a woman's life. Set free to take the life of at least one other, very likely at least 2 or more.


    1948 -- Rowles born, Wilkinsburg, PA
    1970 -- Marries Linda Schaeffer
    Mar 29, 1972 -- Murders Linda Fida, his neighbor, in a Miami apartment complex. Strangles her to death, and stabs her in the breast after she's dead.
    Mar 1973 -- Schaeffer divorces Rowles
    Mar 1976 -- Sentenced to life in prison for Fida's murder
    Dec 1985 -- Released on parole

    ----------3+ year span-------

    Feb 9, 1989 -- Tiffany Sessions disappears in Gainesville

    ----------3 year span------

    Mar 15, 1992 -- Elizabeth Foster disappears in Gainesville, and later is found murdered

    ----------2 year span------

    Jan 1994 -- Kidnaps 15-year-old girl in Clearwater and drives her to his residence in Jacksonville
    July 1994 -- Sentenced to 91 months(???) Seven-and-a-half years for the Clearwater kidnapping and rape(???) That's not right.
    1995 -- Sentenced to 10 months for armed burglary
    Feb 2013 -- Dead, prison records show him as "out of custody"
