As she has done numerous times since the Josef Fritzl tragedy first made headlines, Heidi Schnitzer [David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker] has again been quoted defending the 73-year old monster. A Spanish newspaper recently noted Schnitzer's support of Fritzl's heinous actions. Many thanks to Dojo at www.dojodabbles.blogspot.com for her excellent account of this story and the links to the English translations.
The stalker herself has always claimed what a great resource the Internet is when it comes to locating personal and highly private information about David Caruso which Schnitzer in turn posts all over the Internet. I wonder how she feels now that the tables have been reversed on her. A recent Google search yielded this article about Josef Fritzl. In it Heidi, who used her Austrian pseudonym Gabriele H., is quoted describing Fritzl as a devoted grandfather. CNN ran the following English translation:
"One who looks after their grandchildren whilst their mother just ran away. We were all asking ourselves, what kind of mother would do that to their children?" she said
Hmmm, would that be the very same woman who abandoned her own daughter, Katharina Sophie, to pursue the life of a criminal stalker? The answer is yes. The dichotomy however is unclear. On the one hand, Schnitzer questions the mothering skills of an imprisoned fellow Austrian while at the same time Schnitzer knowingly and brazenly abandoned her own child. To answer Schnitzer's question: the same person as yourself, Heidi. Quoting PattiMc, a frequent commenter on Dojo's TV Guide blog, puts it all into perspective: "pot, kettle, black."
Schnitzer remains on the lam hiding out in Tijuana, Mexico. If you spot this woman, please report all suspicious activity to the Border Patrol at 1-800-232-5378. Or contact the local police in Tijuana, the U.S. FBI or Austria's Bundeskriminalamt at +43-(0)1-531 26-0.
