The above photo of Heidemarie Schnitzer dancing with her two children was obviously taken in much happier times. Circa 2003, this picture shows Schnitzer with her daughter Katharina Sophie and her as yet unidentified son. Sadly, Schnitzer has denied these children are hers undoubtedly to ease the guilt and shame she suffers knowing she failed them as their Mother. Photographed years before Schnitzer's stalking of David Caruso was made public, foreboding hints of a troubled woman can already be seen in Schnitzer's dour facial expression.
Will we ever know what caused Schnitzer to go off the deep end, throw away her life and walk away from these two children? Maybe not. Tragically, these youths will have to live with the disgrace and stigma unleashed upon them by a Mother who chose to criminally stalk and threaten to murder three people including CSI Miami's David Caruso.
With another weekend approaching, these children probably have full schedules with friends, extended family and perhaps sporting events. What do Katharina and her brother say when asked, "where's your Mom?"
Heidemarie Schnitzer remains at large on Mexico's Baja peninsula wanted on an International Warrant for threatening to murder CSI Miami's David Caruso and for fleeing Austria to avoid prosecution thereof. Schnitzer is armed and considered to be extremely dangerous. Please do not attempt to apprehend this woman.
