Raped at 8 and left for dead, a victim raises her voice
Jennifer Schuett, 8-years-old
Because Schuett survived and was able to talk, despite her would be killer's intentions when he slit her throat, we've heard a first hand account of the vicious, cruel and inhuman acts waged by Dennis Bradford. Her voicebox was damaged by the blade he used, and doctors said she'd never speak again. Yet she went on to become a strong voice for the thousands of victims who didn't live to tell their tales. Such courage. May God bless her.
