With Vipix gone and all five of Schnitzer's screen names now banned by Digg , David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker finds herself in a major tailspin. Regrouping later this afternoon, Schnitzer began attacking this blogger's credibility once again by touting the absurd claim that an arrest warrant had never been issued until last week. We all know how Heidi claims over and over again that she is not the woman sought for stalking so the question begs, why is she so interested in all of this?
The Stalker Chronicles stands by its previous report that an arrest warrant was issued in April, 2008. And to back up our claim, here's the April 16, 2008 article published by the Associated Press reporting that Schnitzer fled Austria to avoid being prosecuted on charges she stalked and threatened to murder David Caruso and two others. Note the mention that a Judge signed an arrest warrant:
Austrian Police Looking For Woman Accused of Stalking CSI:
VIENNA, Austria: Austrian authorities searched on Wednesday for a woman who failed to appear for the start of her trial on charges of stalking and threatening to kill "CSI: Miami" star David Caruso. A judge signed a warrant for the woman's arrest after she failed to show up for Wednesday's trial in the city of Innsbruck, Austrian media reported. The Tiroler Tageszeitung newspaper said her lawyer had reassured authorities last week that she intended to be in court. The public prosecutor's office in the alpine province of Tyrol said the suspect vanished without a trace and took her laptop with her.
Prosecutors allege the woman sent more than 100 letters to Caruso and pursued the American actor for an autograph. They said Caruso received death threats after refusing to give her the autograph. In line with Austrian privacy laws, authorities identified the defendant only as a 41-year-old native of Tyrol. She was identified after a joint investigation by the FBI and Austria's Federal Criminal Investigations Bureau.
A 2007 letter allegedly containing the threat bore a Miami postmark and showed up in Caruso's fan mail, Austrian authorities said. They said it read in part: "I will locate you and your ugly Latina tramp and kill you."The 52-year-old Caruso is the star of the CBS series and plays Miami police Lt. Horatio Caine.It was unclear whether the Latina reference alluded to actress Alana De La Garza, who played Caruso's TV wife until her character was gunned down by drug dealers.
Because of the location of the trial, Austrian media have dubbed the affair "CSI: Innsbruck."The Austria Press Agency reported Wednesday that Karin Treichl, a court-appointed psychiatrist, testified that the suspect had been diagnosed with a "profound personality disorder."
Officials said the woman originally had been ordered to appear in court in July 2007, but was outside the country at the time and never showed up, delaying the proceedings until this week.
If convicted, she faces up to three years' imprisonment under Austria's recently toughened anti-stalking law, and the possibility of additional time if charged, tried and convicted on related charges of eluding justice.
