How Lindsay protects herself from a stalker. We received a call from Janet (not her real name) about her daughter, Lindsay (not her real name). Lindsay was a young adult who had been receiving very graphic, violent and disturbing text messages and emails from an anonymous person.
Lindsay lived with her significant other (a female). They were both terrified by the verbiage in the texts and emails. Feeling extremely threatened and in fear for their lives, they both eventually resigned from their soccer team and never returned to the practice field. The reason they discontinued playing on the team was because they believed that the messages were being sent from one of their teammates. It was unfortunate, because soccer was the one thing they enjoyed doing.
Our take on this private investigation was that the clues were simply too obvious and we thought we should look elsewhere other than at the teammates. Commencing our stalking investigation, we learned that the text messages and emails on Lindsay’s cell phone would suspiciously disappear, even though she did not delete them. This was a clue that it had to be someone very close to Lindsay, since they would have access to her phone to delete the messages. The one person who would have constant access to the victim’s phone was her significant other.
With her permission, we interviewed Lindsay’s significant other. During the interview, she revealed certain aspects of her life, including a Court Ordered Restraining Order and a host of other women she lived with prior to the victim. After conducting a Superior Court record search and background check, we found the Court Ordered Restraining Order and set out to find the person who filed it. We found her, and after interviewing that person, we began to see a frightening parallel between the actions of the significant other and Lindsay.
The actions of the significant other were identical to those both victims. All of our evidence lead us to the significant other as the perpetrator, who was clearly mentally disturbed. When given all the evidence we gathered, Lindsay packed up all of her belongings and immediately severed ties to her significant other.
This was a case that was very difficult to handle because the victim was in love with her significant other, who was also her stalker. Lindsay had a very difficult time trying to understand how a person who professed to loving her could be so hateful and vicious.
This is far from a typical stalker investigation but it is one that should be told for the benefit of others.
Stop your stalker and free yourself from the fear.
