Schaeffer Murderer Stabbed In Prison


Rebecca Schaeffer

The man convicted of stalking and killing model-turned-actress Rebecca Schaeffer is recovering after he was attacked and stabbed in prison.
Robert John Bardo, 37, was sentenced to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of murdering My Sister Sam star Schaeffer in 1989 - and was left fighting for life after he was stabbed repeatedly by another inmate at Mule Creek State Prison in Amador County, California last week (ends29Jul07). Bardo was housed in a maximum-security unit at the jail.
Officials confirm Bardo suffered 11 stab and puncture wounds on Friday (27Jul07) and treated at University of California, Davis, Medical Center. He has now returned to the prison.
State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officials state the murderer was stabbed in the prison yard while inmates were on their way to breakfast.
Two homemade weapons were found at the scene. The suspect in the attack was identified as a man serving an 82-years-to-life sentence for second-degree murder.
Bardo's slaying of Schaeffer prompted strict anti-stalking laws in California.

Gibson: 'I Was Killer Stalker's Next Target'


Deborah Gibson Robert John Bardo Rebecca Schaeffer

Eighties pop star Deborah Gibson has revealed she's lucky to be alive after being targeted by celebrity killer Robert John Bardo. The ONLY IN MY DREAMS singer discovered she was on sick Bardo's hit list after he was jailed for killing actress Rebecca Schaeffer in 1989. She says, "I was that stalker's other target so it could have been me." And that realisation has prompted Gibson to fight websites who print celebrity's addresses - because that's how Bardo tracked down his victim, and then shot her when she answered the door. She adds, "I've come that close to that. It's really frightening. There really should be a law (against printing addresses). "It's not a joke and it's not about, like, 'Oh, woe is me, I'm a celebrity and people are bothering me.' "It's like leaving a birdseed trail of how people can find you."
