CSI: Mexico - fans track down Caruso stalker
A deranged stalker who threatened to kill CSI Miami star David Caruso has been arrested after fans of the hit crime show tracked her down in Mexico.
Heidemarie Schnitzer has been on the run from her home in Innsbruck, Tyrol, since she was accused of blitzing the star with more than 100 sinister letters.
Now fans from the show have snared her after tracking down her laptop computer to Tijuana through her internet service provider.
A blog called The Stalker Chronicles unravelled hundreds of layers of security Schnitzer had put in place to protect her location and CSI fan Sara Kane finally cracked the trail last week and informed the Austrian Justice Ministry.
Mexican police have arrested the 41-year-old woman who his now facing extradition and three years in jail under Austria's tough anti-stalking laws.
Schnitzer threatened to kill Caruso - who plays investigator Horatio Caine - and his lover Liza Marquez after he ignored her obsessed letters.
