Heidemarie Schnitzer's fifteen minutes of fame is now within her grasp. All David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker has to do is surrender. Her reward will be the attention she has so desperately sought for years. Schnitzer's perp walk and the accompanying media stampede all but guarantee that her image will be splashed all over every major newspaper and online media outlet.
It remains to be seen though how this will all play out in the end. As each day passes without Schnitzer surrendering, the more difficult it's going to be to negotiate any type of reduced charges or sentencing with prosecutors. Schnitzer doesn't seem to be too terribly concerned though. Diagnosed with severe personality disorder, Schnitzer has abandoned two children and remains on the lam in Mexico. She doesn't seem to realize that she will ultimately suffer some serious consequences including jail time for stalking, threatening to murder David Caruso and skipping out on two court hearings. A warrant for Schnitzer's immediate arrest remains in full force and effect.
One thing is an absolutely certain: Heidemarie Schnitzer is going to milk this for all it's worth. Her place in the entertainment annals as a celebrity stalker is all but assured. What a dubious legacy.
