When the mainstream press starts picking up the sad tale surrounding David Caruso's fugitive Austrian stalker Heidemarie Schnitzer, you can bet your bottom dollar it's by design. Last November, the only press this story got was from The National Enquirer. It's a testament to the staying power of this story when a year later, venerable publications like the Associated Press, the International Herald Tribune and now Newsweek publish it. Schnitzer's threats to murder three people combined with the fact that she has fled Austria to hide out in Mexico's Baja region are being taken seriously. It's also affirmation for the arduous behind the scenes work that has been put into an effort to bring Schnitzer to certain justice awaiting her in an Austrian court room.
The wider circulation guarantees that one, more people are aware of the situation and two, law enforcement is working to bring a resolution. Tips to The Stalker Chronicles have increased twofold since Austrian Judge Guenther Boehler issued an international warrant for Schnitzer's arrest. If interest in this site from Mexican locales is any indicator, the story now possesses an urgency not before seen. We thank our readers for their continued interest and support especially during the seemingly endless dry spells when there has not been any news to report.
