The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) and the Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) are offering a reward for information leading to the capture of Frederick Schueler, 75, for his 1984 escape from the Avon Park Correctional Institution. He is one of a dozen cold case prison escapees being featured during the “12 Days of Fugitives” campaign – a joint public outreach initiative by FDLE and DOC.
On Jan. 11, 1976, Schueler entered a bookstore in Volusia County and robbed a victim at gunpoint. Schueler was later arrested and sentenced on July 19, 1978.
“Inmate Schueler was serving a 120-year sentence for a number of violent felonies committed here in Florida. He has a fairly unusual tattoo of the word ‘Luck’ on the fingers of his left hand. We’re hoping that ‘luck’ will soon run out and a citizen will recognize him or one of his unusual tattoos,” said Department of Corrections Secretary Walter McNeil.
Schueler is 6’2” and at the time of his escape was approximately 170 pounds. He has blue eyesand black hair. In addition to the ‘Luck’ tattoo, Schueler has a tattoo of a bird on his left forearm and a tattoo of star and quarter moon on his left hand. He has two small scars on his forehead. He has several aliases, including: Howard Archie Baker, Leonard Lee Cook, Fred Russell Groneau, Frederick Russell Cook, Matt Jon Williams, Thomas Newton Russ; He has also used various dates of birth including: 01/17/1939, 05/11/1934, 08/17/1934, 09/06/1930, 10/17/1934, and 10/20/1927.
Schueler will be featured on digital billboards across the state. The Florida Outdoor Advertising Association (FOAA) and its network of member companies are broadcasting the faces of the fugitives and the tip line number throughout the campaign period. There are 90 digital billboard locations statewide.
There is an active warrant for Schueler for escape, a first-degree felony. The warrant is for nationwide extradition. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the toll freetip line at 1-877-FLA-WANTED (1-877-352-9268) or e-mail [email protected]
Thoughts? The above case description was from Florida's Manatee Crime Watch blog. Schueler was profiled on AMW's old website as a web-exclusive case. It is rather fitting that the word Luck is tattooed on Schueler's fingers since he has been incredibly lucky so far. I have to wonder- which would be odd considering he was a career criminal- if the reason Schueler hasn't been caught- if still alive- is like Dennis Lilly- he went "straight." Perhaps he's living a quiet live even in plain site in Florida as a seemingly normal part of a community. Who knows. 81 years is a long time, so of course Schueler no longer being among the living should of course be considered a possibility as well.
