For the next several days The Stalker Chronicles is going to feature the Mayors of Baja, California. When these local officials work closely with Mexico's federal government, they could provide valuable assistance in bringing the Austrian fugitive Heidemarie Schnitzer to justice.
Today we introduce The Honorable Jorge Ramos who has served Tijuana as its Mayor for almost a year. This video was shot days before Ramos took office. In it, Ramos vows to take proactive measures to curtail crime in the area. He promotes working closely with Governor Osuna Millan on matters affecting the security of the Baja area and we applaud him in those efforts.
We hope that Mayor Ramos can aid in capturing Heidemarie Schnitzer. Schnitzer is wanted in connection with charges she stalked and threatened to murder three people, including the star of CSI: Miami's David Caruso. After failing to appear in an Austrian court to answer these charges, Schnitzer fled to Mexico's Baja region in the Spring 2008 where she remains in hiding. On October 28, 2008 Austrian Judge Guenther Boehler issued an international warrant for Schnitzer's arrest. The onerous is now upon the Mexican government to capture this dangerous fugitive and deport her to Austria.
For anyone caring to communicate with The Honorable Jorge Ramos, you can e-mail his assistant as follows:
