To date, little is known about Heidemarie Schnitzer's childhood and what events may have contributed to her psychotic adult behavior. Was Schnitzer abused as a child or perhaps abandoned? Or is Schnitzer's condition hereditary much like that of the late Margaret Mary Ray, David Letterman's stalker? For those familiar with Casey Anthony, the Florida mother accused of murdering her daughter, many psychiatric experts have stated that Anthony lacks a conscience rendering her incapable of love for anyone other than herself. Schnitzer too appears to be afflicted with this same mental incapacity. Was she born to stalk?
With Josef Fritzl scheduled to be tried next month for his heinous crimes, a closer look at his psychiatric examination reveals striking similarities to Dr. Karin Treichl's evaluation of Schnitzer. Dr. Adelheid Kastner of the Wagner-Jauregg psychiatric clinic in Linz, Austria prepared a 130 page report detailing her extensive examination of Fritzl. Kastner concluded the following:
“He was not only incredibly able to lead a double life but also managed to maintain a triple life without any problems,” Dr Kastner wrote, indicating that Fritzl played down the gravity of his crimes in his mind.
“Mr Fritzl resembles a volcano; under the surface that appears almost banal there is an evil streak. He is torn apart by his desires that he cannot master,” Dr Kastner wrote.
The report declared Fritzl clinically sane and fit for trial, but also diagnosed a “severe combined personality disorder and a sexual disorder”.
“It is to be expected that Mr Fritzl would perpetrate deeds with severe consequences also in the future,” Dr Kastner concluded.
According to Kastner, Fritzl's dysfunctional childhood contributed to his heinous adult behavior and criminal proclivities. Compare Kastner's diagnosis of Fritzl to Dr. Treichl's diagnosis of Schnitzer who concluded that Schnitzer suffered from a "severe personality disorder" with the potential for turning dangerous. Mexico, where Schnitzer remains on the run, has a human volcano ready to erupt without notice residing illegally in their midst. Daily on multiple Internet sites, Schnitzer maintains a "double life" and downplays her crimes against Caruso and his family. If provoked by impending capture, Schnitzer's repressed "evil streak" poses a serious threat to Mexico's citizenry. Officials close to this story continue to express grave concerns for David Caruso and his family members should Schnitzer manage to breach the US/Mexico border and travel to Los Angeles.
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.
