While Heidemarie Schnitzer was being held in Tijuana, Mexico, she gave an interview to the Austrian magazine News. Schnitzer shows no remorse for her actions and clearly was not coming clean concerning the circumstances surrounding her capture. Claiming she was arrested after her six month tourist visa had expired, Schnitzer simply tries to shrug off the seriousness of the charges against her hoping she will receive a light sentence. And by the way, Schnitzer was in Mexico from April 2008 thru February 2009, ten months according to our calculations so the six month tourist visa story doesn't hold water.
As every major news service across the globe has reported, Tijuana Police arrested Schnitzer after receiving tips forwarded to them by The Stalker Chronicles. Schnitzer cannot even tell the truth while incarcerated. Additionally, our sources in Mexico have confirmed that Schnitzer has been transferred to Mexico City where she is awaiting deportation. Our thanks to Thomas Hochwarter of the Austrian Times for summarizing her interview in English. Here it is in its entirety:
CSI star stalker hopes to get away with it
By Thomas Hochwarter
The deranged Austrian woman who threatened to kill CSI: Miami star David Caruso said she is "kind of relieved" now that she had been arrested.Austrian magazine "News" interviewed Heidemarie Schnitzer, who has been on the run for months since she was accused of sending the 53-year-old actor more than 100 sinister letters.In the interview, Schnitzer admits she is hoping for a mild sentence. She said: "I expect a light sentence because in the end nothing happened."The Tyrolean is currently being detained in a prison in Tijuana, Mexico, where she is waiting to be extradited to Austria. In her home country, the 42-year-old blonde will face up to three years in jail under Austria's new anti-stalking laws.Asked about how tense the last few months had been for her, Schnitzer said: "I wasn’t really on the run. I had a tourist visa for six months that simply expired in the end. I was arrested in a random traffic check (two weeks ago)."The cops realised there was an international warrant for the woman and arrested her.She said: "I learned my lesson. But I continued to watch CSI when it was on Mexican TV."In one letter, Schnitzer threatened: "I’m going to kill you and your butt-ugly Latina whore (…) that fat-assed bimbo (…) an offense to your whole fan base. It’ll take some time – but I’ll find you."My letters were a stupid joke. I wanted to make something special, something others don’t do."
