In the 90's, CBS' David Letterman unwittingly became the victim of a celebrity stalker. Although Letterman's stalker Margaret Mary Ray suffered from schizophrenia, her stalking amounted to nothing more than annoying exploits in harassment. Ten years later, CBS again finds one of their own hounded by a stalker. For the last two years, CSI Miami's David Caruso has been physically and mentally stalked by a deranged Austrian woman, Heidemarie Schnitzer. Karin Treichl, her court-appointed psychiatrist, has diagnosed Schnitzer as suffering from a profound personality disorder capable of becoming dangerous.
The differences between Ray and Schnitzer are alarming. Letterman's stalker convinced herself she was romantically involved with the star and repeatedly broke into his home, stole his car and even camped out on his tennis court at one point. Heidemarie Schnitzer, on the other hand, has written a letter to David Caruso threatening to murder him and Liza Marquez stating that she (Schnitzer) would start by murdering Caruso's grown daughter, Greta.
Schnitzer went off the deep end when she demanded and never received an autograph from David Caruso. Schnitzer then mailed Caruso a death threat in care of CBS Studios. Unlike Ray, Schnitzer has employed the Internet not only as an offensive weapon to defame and slander Caruso, but to thumb her nose at authorities who have not been able to capture her while she remains on the lam in Mexico.
Yesterday, in yet another act of desperation, Schnitzer stole another blogger's name and used it to post lies and innuendo on this site. Anyone familiar with the blogger in question knows she would never promote gossip especially on another site. Because Schnitzer's personality disorder has progressed into the advanced stages, the Internet has become fraught with evidence that she'll stop at nothing to save her own skin.
Two years ago, Schnitzer had the Internet virtually to herself to wage a personal war against Caruso. Now however, the tide has turned and Schnitzer has gone on a rampage against those of us who have exposed her.
When compared to Letterman's stalker, Heidemarie Schnitzer is Margaret Mary Ray on steroids. Schnitzer's antics, including boasting on websites about crossing into the U.S. to carry out her death threats against David Caruso, make Ray's pranks look like the stuff of an infatuated school girl. With Schnitzer lying in wait in Tijuana minutes south of the California/Mexico border, officials are privately concerned about the grave implications she poses should she succeed in crossing undetected into the U.S.
Schnitzer's all out efforts to discredit this blog and any that expose her are symptoms of extreme mental illness. Stealing other's names to promote her sick agenda against David Caruso is a cry for help. Is Schnitzer desperate enough to commit murder? Does anyone really want to find out?
The U.S. Border Patrol has been placed on high alert and has photos of Heidi Schnitzer at all check points.
