Although a number of Austrian articles updating the David Caruso stalker situation have appeared over the last several days, this is the only one thus far to appear in English. There is no new information in this article. We already knew most of this from the Associated Press article which appeared four months ago. Why the Austrian press doesn't seem to have a clue that Schnitzer is in Tijuana, Mexico remains unseen. In any event, here's the English translation:
"Police have issued an arrest warrant for the Austrian woman who stalked Hollywood star David Caruso after she failed to turn up at her trial in Innsbruck.
Prosecutors allege the woman sent more than 100 letters to the CSI Miami actor and religiously pursued the 52-year-old for an autograph. But when Caruso refused to provide her one, she wrote letters threatening to kill him and the co-stars of the successful series. In one letter, posted in Miami, the Tyrolean wrote: "I will kill you and your ugly Latino bitch."
Authorities have identified the defendant only as a 41-year-old native of Innsbruck. She was arrested in Austria after a joint investigation by the FBI and Austrian police last year.
Two court case dates have been scheduled since then but the woman failed to turn up for both of them. Judge Günther Böhler held the trial without the defendant being physically present but after the suspect failed to turn up on the second trial day, the court ordered a warrant. Family members say they do not know where the woman is.
It is unclear why the woman, whom her attorney Günther Gast has yet to meet, would become a stalker and write someone death threats. She has a family and was successful with her work.
A psychiatrist for the court says that she is probably suffering from a personality disorder and she should be found as there is a possibility she could become dangerous"
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.
