Missing Wendy Brown Stevenson
Missing Since 12/29/1969
Pompano Beach, Florida
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 06/20/1961 (59)
Age 8 years old
Height and Weight 4'2, 61 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A blue and white checkered bikini.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Brown hair, hazel eyes. Wendy has a six-inch appendectomy scar on her abdomen, four large freckles on the lower left side of her chin and a small mole on the center of her neck. Her first name may be spelled "Windy."
At 1:00 p.m., Peggy and Wendy decided to walk to the parking lot to buy ice cream. A convenience store clerk reported seeing a man buying ice cream cones for Peggy and Wendy. He identified the girls from photographs.
Authorities initially suspected both girls had drowned. However, nobody saw them in distress in the water that day, their bodies were not recovered, and Wendy was known to be a good swimmer. The drowning theory was eventually discarded as implausible. The man who took Peggy to the beach was questioned as a possible suspect. He cooperated with the investigation, passed a polygraph, and was cleared.
Shilts admitted having been in central Florida around the time the girls went missing, but denied having had anything to do with their disappearances. Authorities were never able to prove his involvement. He died in 1991. A photo of him is posted with this case summary.
Schaefer was only convicted of two murders. Prosecutors publicly accused him of killing Peggy and Wendy in 1973. He denied it at that time, but in 1989 he wrote a letter and confessed to murdering the girls. He was never charged in their cases, however, and was himself murdered in prison in 1995.
Wendy and Peggy have never been found.
