With the news spreading about David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker Heidi Schnitzer, comparisons are being drawn to another CBS celebrity, David Letterman. For years, Letterman was stalked and hounded by Margaret Mary Ray. Breaking into Letterman's home, trespassing on his property and stealing his auto were but a few of Ray's attempts to be close to the object of her desire. Ray's somewhat dubious fame sprang from years of mental illness and as this article details ended tragically.
After reading this horrific tale of Ray's delusions of a relationship with David Letterman, the similarities to Heidi Schnitzer's stalking of David Caruso became chilling. There was one major difference however. Unlike Heidi Schnitzer, Margaret Mary Ray NEVER threatened to murder Letterman and members of his family. As we all know, Schnitzer has threatened Caruso, his daughter Greta and Liza Marquez with murder. It is feared that Schnitzer may be planning to make good on these threats in the very near future. A copy of Schnitzer's death threat letter can be found below this post.
Like Margaret Mary Ray, Heidi Schnitzer is in serious need of professional intervention if she is ever to recover from her stalking addiction. Until Schnitzer takes that critical first step and surrenders to authorities, she will never receive the help she so desperately needs. We can only hope that Margaret Mary Ray's tragic history is not repeated.
Heidi Schnitzer remains a fugitive hiding out in the Tijuana, Mexico area. She is armed and considered to be extremely dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend this woman. Contact the U.S. Border Patrol at 1-800-232-5378 , the FBI or Austria's Bundeskriminalamt at +43-(0)1-531 26-0.
