Although we missed most of Sunday night's Golden Globes, we have since read about Tina Fey's comments during the show directed towards her Internet stalkers. And this evening, Entertainment Tonight posed the question, "Is Tina Fey at The Center of a Blogger Backlash?"
Here at The Stalker Chronicles we can say unequivocally no. Compared to the two-plus year Internet hate campaign waged by Austria's Heidemarie Schnitzer against David Caruso and his family, Tina Fey's detractors pale. David Caruso on the other hand has been stalked and threatened with murder by a woman diagnosed with "severe personality disorder" by a Court-appointed psychiatrist who predicts that Schnitzer could turn deadly at a moment's notice.
Tina, we don't mean to make light of your situation or downplay the seriousness of it in any way. We hope that you never have to endure threats against the lives of your loved ones, multiple hate blogs designed to destroy your professional and personal reputation by a deranged stalker who has twice failed to appear for trial in Austria and who is now hiding out on Mexico's Baja peninsula. We fervently hope that your stalkers never post pornographic comments on the Internet about your infant. And most of all, we hope that you do not have to walk around constantly looking over your shoulder wondering if an indicted stalker has breached the US/Mexico border to hunt you down.
Like the late Margaret Mary Ray who stalked David Letterman for years, Tina's stalkers seem to be more nuisance than fugitives fleeing the law with international warrants on their heads. Schnitzer, who hails from Hitler's homeland where hate at times reigned, actually sent a letter to David Caruso outlining her plan to murder him, his grown daughter Greta and his former companion, Liza Marquez.
We thank Tina Fey for bringing this problem to light on a live television broadcast shown around the world. Perhaps Fey's actions will draw attention to a problem that, for David Caruso at least, has gotten criminally out of control.
Heidemarie Schnitzer remains at large hiding out in Mexico's Baja peninsula. Schnitzer is armed and considered to be extremely dangerous. Please do not attempt to apprehend this woman. An international warrant has been issued for her arrest. Contact the U.S. Border Patrol at 1-800-232-5378 , the FBI at (310) 477-6565 or Austria's Bundeskriminalamt at +43-(0)1-531 26-0.

On October 28, 2008, Austria's Judge Guenther Boehler took the necessary steps to bring Heidemarie Schnitzer's capture a thing of reality by modifying his previously issued warrant for the stalker's arrest. With a new warrant in place, tracking down Schnitzer took on an international significance and a global manhunt ensued. Although most experts agree that Schnitzer remains in hiding on Mexico's Baja peninsula, the Mexican government has been moving on this matter more slowly than first thought. Extensive international cooperation is therefore needed to avert a tragedy when Schnitzer turns deadly and follows through with her threats against Caruso and Latin Americans.
It's high time for both Mexico and Austria to coordinate forces and share information in an all out effort to bring closure to this matter. Issuing an international warrant in and of itself is nothing more than window dressing. Without any follow-up on the part of Innsbruck's Provincial Court, why would Mexico feel any sense of urgency to expend resources to capture Schnitzer?
Dr. Maria Berger, Austria's Minister of Justice has proposed stricter laws for those charged and convicted of stalking. Dr. Berger needs to make Heidemarie Schnitzer's capture priority one and coordinate her government's efforts with Mexico's Attorney General, Eduardo Medina Mora pictured above. During Senor Mora's administration 196 fugitives have been handed over for extradition to foreign governments. Mora is on the record stating that he will not allow Mexico to become a refuge for fugitives from justice.
If Schnitzer continues to be ignored and allowed to remain at large, lives hang in the balance. As Dr. Karin Treichl has stated, Schnitzer has the potential for becoming dangerous. And when Schnitzer acts as it is predicted she will, a tragedy is certain. Will Schnitzer end up murdering Caruso, his daughter and Liza Marquez as she has threatened or will one or more Mexican citizens end up losing their lives?
It's up to Dr. Maria Berger and Senor Eduardo Medina Mora to insure that this does not happen.
