Please take stalking serious. Our stalking, with our youngest daughter being the main target, lasted only four months, and we had no idea that it would end with our daughter’s murder. Know what you should do if you are being stalked – educate yourself in order to be safe. Don’t become another statistic. Much love & light to you…the more we know and the more we share our awareness the safer we become. #JusticeForMorgan #JusticeForAllVictimsofStalking

Woman Stalked – She Finally Gave Up…

Nicholas Allen was jailed for 10 years for the manslaughter of Justene Reece, who killed herself as a “direct result” of his controlling behaviour.

This is such a sad outcome. When there is no early intervention in stalking cases, the horrific toll that stalking takes on victims is immeasurable.

Deputy Chief Constable Nick Baker apologised. “We are committed to ensuring officers and staff understand stalking and its devastating impact so they can better respond to incidents reported to us.”

A Lag In Reporting A Stalker…

Wow! This article says stalking victims can sometimes be targeted at least 100 times before raising the alarm, a police expert says.

In our case, after approximately one week of targeted incidents of stalking we finally call the sheriffs, and they told us we shouldn’t have waited so long – as a victim of stalking, one who has never been stalked before, you tend to ignore the incidents, writing them off as something else, never wanting to believe someone has targeted you. You try to think of an innocent explanation for everything that is happening…until you can no longer do so.

Wiltshire’s deputy chief constable Paul Mills, said “[But] if left unchecked, the key to this type of behavior is fixation and that can grow very, very quickly and as a result the risk can rise.

“In the worst cases, in cases known as femicide, where females are killed by men, there is a high incidence of stalking and prior to ultimately sadly losing their lives.”

Stalking is the most UNDERREPORTED crime. The Stalking Resource Center at the National Center for Victims of Crime and the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women produced this video to enhance the ability of law enforcement first responders to recognize and effectively respond to stalking. The video is designed so that it can either be shown in its entirety (approximately 18 minutes) or as individual chapters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2BHO8eXvxA
