Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

The ongoing saga of serial Keyser reader and alleged David Caruso stalker Vixen and her accusers gets curiouser and curiouser. Make what you will of the following post from some guy’s blog back in August:

I’ll be honest with you — I think I may regret posting anything about the whole David Caruso stalker business. It should probably be left up to the FBI, the Austrian Police and the U.S. Border Patrol. But I can’t help it. The story is undeniably fascinating, especially to someone like me who followed the whole David Letterman-Margaret Ray business back in the 1990s.

Also, I must say I feel sorry for the poor woman who has apparently become unhinged and issued death threats to Caruso. I hope she gets some help. What she’s alleged to have done is an extreme instance of something we all do to some degree whenever we substitute “online community” for our own immediate community, or grow obsessed with a TV show or video game. Obviously, most of us remember to keep at least one foot in the real world, but not always – trust me, I get cards and letters from such folks, though none has dared to go as far as the Austrian woman in question.

Also, the stalker has a stalker. Maybe that’s a bit harsh. An Internet vigilante seeking to bring a criminal on the lam to justice? Well, that’s her self-description, and when I challenged her, this woman sent me a reply that was sufficiently compelling that I posted it below. Decide for yourself.

First, though, here’s what we know. An April story from Austria Today read as follows:

A 41-year-old Austrian woman went on trial in Innsbruck Wednesday accused of stalking ´CSI: Miami´ star David Caruso and allegedly threatening to kill him. Prosecutors allege the woman sent more than 100 letters to Caruso and pursued the American actor for an autograph. After the star refused to provided her one, she wrote letters threatening to kill him and his co-stars. … She was arrested after a joint investigation by the FBI and Austria´s Federal Criminal Investigations Bureau. Since then, the defendent disappeared, and not even her family knows where she is. … It is unclear why the woman, whom her attorney has yet to meet, would become a stalker and write someone death threats. She has a family and was successful with her work. A psychiatrist for the court says that she is probably suffering from a personality disorder and it should be investigated as it is possible that she could become dangerous.

The mental-illness angle, of course, brings back memories of “Mrs. Letterman,” whose post mortem in the New York Times is one of the saddest stories I’ve ever read while on this beat.

A couple of days ago, I got an email from a Sara Kanne alerting me to her blog which itself had an alert that Caruso’s stalker may be living just south of the border in Tijuana and that she was preparing to strike her prey via an incredibly brazen manuever that was … well … worthy of an episode of “CSI: Miami.”

After some searching, I discovered that Sara does media blitzes from time to time in an effort to bring some added publicity to her cause. For instance, in July the stalker case was publicized by Defamer and CSI Fanatic. So now, I guess, it was my turn.

I may be enabling a wild-eyed blogger, or I may be helping to catch a predator. I don’t really know. But I did send Sara an email asking her why she cared so much about this case. Her reply, in full:

One word, Justice. Conan O’Brien, Dave Letterman, Jodie Foster and other high profile actors have been stalked and threatened over the years. For some reason, probably as a result of the NYPD Blue debacle 15 years ago, Caruso gets stalked and no one seems to care. In Caruso’s case though, three people have been threatened with death: Caruso, his grown daughter Greta and Liza, the mother of his two young children.

Schnitzer is sitting south of our border hoping that no one will care enough to publicize it. Last summer when Schnitzer fled the first time, the FBI located her in Mexico and sent her packing back to Austria. That story appeared in the Nov. 2007 National Enquirer and in Austrian publications. It wasn’t until this spring though, when the Austrians allowed her to slip their borders once again, that the AP picked it up.

Now 4 months later, not a word has been mentioned. It’s almost like the story has disappeared. Schnitzer herself has even bragged on a French website that she’s been in Chula Vista and San Diego. My traffic stats show that not to be the case. She also brags frequently about not being caught.

Caruso and his family face a potential tragedy if this woman manages to cross into California and hunt them down. Schnitzer has abandoned a young daughter, a job and her country to stalk David Caruso. Sounds like someone whose threats ought to be taken seriously, wouldn’t you agree?

Caruso doesn’t deserve this, no one does.

All Keyser knows from personal knowledge is that Vixen has two separate blogs in which she speaks disparagingly of David Caruso, whereas Sara Kanne has one in which she speaks disparagingly of Vixen. Since Keyser has at times been known to speak in a similar vein about various public figures who have met with his disapprobation, he can sympathize. Needlessly to say, going beyond mere words would be totally uncool. Can’t we all just get along?

And that’s all Keyser has to say on the subject. For now!

[This insane posting managed to sneak out of the maximum security unit over at Keyser's Lair by hiding under a garbage truck (a trick suggested by a particularly stupid episode of CSI: The First One).]

    Lovely pic of Joan and her axe, inspiring. If only she could be around now to clean up the mess that is Hollywood.

    David Caruso, the coddled actor on one of TV’s most boring shows, needs to arm himself with weapons like he carries on TV, only REAL ones, that go “bang” and propel projectiles at high velocity, GUNS, I mean GUNS!

    But David,(no relation to Enrico) is probably the typical helpless tough guy of the TV industry, iron man on the screen, totally dependent on hired help off screen.

    People who have nothing better to do with their time than stalk celebrities, are so completely useless and pathetic, laws should be passed making it okay for NRA members to shoot them on sight!

    Keyser,

    You forgot to post “the rest of the story”. Aaron Barnhart of TV Barn was forced to close down comments for the above story after “Vixen” aka Heidemarie Schnitzer posted spam over and over again using multiple pseudonyms. This was Aaron’s parting comment:

    “By the way, I’m convinced stalker and stalker’s stalker are two completely different people. A reader sent me a link to this message forum:
    http://minx.cc/?post=255274
    If you understand this form of IP logging that assigns a unique 5-character “hash” to each commenter’s IP, then that thread and the thread it links to will make a pretty convincing case that Sara and Stalker are two different people…. and with that, I’m closing the thread. I think every perspective on this case has been represented here, and I’m trying to discourage you-know-who from continuing to post trolls that I’m not going to publish anyway. (OK, they’re not trolls, but you get my drift.) If you have a POV you’d like included here, send me email.”

    And to further drive home the fact that you, the almighty Keyser, are not the first nor will you be the last to be spammed by David Caruso’s stalker, take a gander at the following from Ace of Spades HQ’s blog. This blog gets over a million hits each day:

    “Caruso Thread Closed”

    “Well, that was strange.

    I shouldn’t have posted that link in the first place. I just thought it was odd that Caruso had a hate site against him. Plus I’m sort of fascinated with the sunglasses off/sunglasses on thing.

    If you read the comments to the thread, it looks like the hate-site writer came in and posted under a lot of aliases here (the bjMoP hash comes up again and again).

    Sarkhanne says she’s a stalker, which, you know, strikes me as a no-brainer; who else makes a single-person hate site? At least cast the net a little wider and make it the Catholics or the Jews or something. Have some ambition.

    He predicted she would just keep posting here and she seems to have done so.

    Anyway, I thought the link was worthwhile just for its oddness, but it seems to have opened up a big can of strange I don’t need, so I shut comments down there and took down the link. I’m getting a Deb Frisch vibe which I should have seen coming.

    Thanks to everyone who alerted me to the weirdness going on in the comments.”

    Heh?

    So one of the world’s crappiest actors gets panned on Mitchieville …. which attracts a psycho who hates the crappy actor for apparently not returning delusional affection.

    It seems that the only sane thing to do is relish the irony.

    And stay away from people who profess love for crappy actors!

  6. Vixen Says:

    A French comedy with of epic proportions. I like it. Expect a lot of additional chapters to follow…
    Curtain up…

    Oh before I forget, Sara very conveniently forgot to mention that Aaron B. called her a WIDE EYED BLOGGER and “The stalkers stalker” (both very fitting!). I do wonder why she forgot to mention that in her above posts. Ouch, the truth hurts!

  7. Vixen Says:

    ….This blog gets over a million hits each day….

    I highly doubt that.

  8. sarakanne Says:

    Since Keyser already quoted Aaron Barnhart: “I may be enabling a wild-eyed blogger, or I may be helping to catch a predator” what would be the point of duplicating it?

    Ouch, the truth hurts!

    Try reading posts instead of using Babelfish to translatethe portions you feel support your sick efforts. Better yet, turn yourself in to the authorities. It’s only a matter of time before they catch up with you Heidemarie.

  9. Vixen Says:

    Oh sarakanne, Aaron Barnhart also posted this:
    ..the stalker has a stalker… Why wouldn’t you want to mention it? Why should that very important part be ignored? Especially since it is the truth? Ohhhhh…

    Ouch, the truth hurts!

    What’s Babelfish? What sick efforts, sweet cheecks? If you mean your laughable rants that get made fun off – I agree. Sarakannes rants and nobody listens. I like it. French comedy at ist finest!

  10. Vixen Says:

    Sarakanne spams Keyser’s blog!

  11. sarakanne Says:

    Again, Schnitzer hasn’t even bothered to read Keyser’s entire post which indeed quotes Aaron Barnhart as saying: “the stalker has a stalker…”

    Think before you open up your dumb mouth Schnitzer or better yet, just read Keyser’s post.

    Ouch, another misrepresentation, but what else is new with a fugitive avoiding the Austrian authorities in Tijuana and abandoning a daughter for a life of crime.

    By the way, have you checked Keyser’s stats? You sure like this blog and every time you hit it, you simply prove both Dojo and myself correct that you are IN TIJUANA.

    More hard evidence for the authorities!

  12. Vixen Says:

    Hi, sweetcheeks. Well, fact is Aaron Barnhart indeed wrote “the stalker has a stalker…” And why shouldn’t that be repeated???

    So think before you open up your dumb mouth Sarakanne. It is all there in print…LOL .. Ouch the truth hurts, sweet cheeks. Epecially if it is something sarakanne doesn’t want to read about. Besides, there is no harm done in repeating FACTS over and over again, right?

    Who proves what? Everybody knows that those stats are watery at best. Especially in times when there are proxies and proxies of proxies. I have to shake my head about so much naivity. But that is nothing new when it comes to sarakanne.
    And the French comedy continues…curtain up..

  13. Vixen Says:

    PS. The only “hard evidence” I see here is that you sarakanne are four quarters short of a dollar …not that we didn’t know that before..LOL

  14. sarakanne Says:

    Well, since there is no harm in repeating facts, here goes:

    Heidemarie Schnitzer is posting here as “Vixen”;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer is obsessed with defaming and libeling David Caruso and anyone associated with him;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has threatened to murder three people including CSI Miami’s David Caruso;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has been charged by an Austrian court for stalking and mailing death threats;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has failed to appear for two court dates to answer said charges;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has fled Austria to avoid being prosecuted on said charges;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has been diagnosed by Dr. Karin Treichl with “severe personality disorder” with the potential for turning deadly at a moment’s notice;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has abandoned one child and if some reports are to be believed two children to pursue a life of crime in her never ending bid to exact vengeanance against David Caruso for rejecting her sexual advances;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer has posted pornographic comments about Marquez Anthony Caruso, David Caruso’s toddler son;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer remains at large hiding out in Mexico’s Baja peninsula and is posting from an i.p. address out of Tijuana;

    Heidemarie Schnitzer is being doggedly pursued by two independent bloggers who have successfully convinced an Austrian Court to issue an international warrant for her arrest;

    I, Sara Kanne, will not stop exposing this criminal for who and what she is until the day she is captured and put away to serve time for her crimes. The Stalker’s Stalker, you betcha!

  15. Vixen Says:

    I know you love me sweetcheeks. And I am happy for you that you have found something that will fill your otherwise meaningless days and nights. Believe me, I can understand your infatuation with me. LOL.

    I don’t know what you mean with exposure? Huh? Did you do something that needs to be exposed?
    You can’t mean the confabulations and hallucinations you posted above? No wonder they call you wild eyes blogger. I believe, not even Keyser – whom you tried to lecture, silly you, – did take you seriously. But then, who would?

    So keep on amusing me – I like it. French comedy at ist finest….LOL

  16. Vixen Says:

    Before I forget it….
    You have something new or interesting to say for a change? I think, I hear cyber-snoring all around me. Must be your rants…Yawn…

  17. cudgel Says:

    Uhh, am I witnessing a catfight and should I be excited?

  18. sarakanne Says:

    To view a copy of Schnitzer’s death threat letter she sent to David Caruso at CBS Studios, see

    http://www.thestalkerchronicles.blogspot.com

    Thank you Keyser for helping publicize CBS’ latest stalker crisis. Schnitzer is being compared to the late Margaret Mary Ray, David Letterman’s former stalker. One major difference exists: Ray never threatened to harm, much less murder anyone.

  19. Vixen Says:

    Yawn…. what crisis, sweetcheeks? The sarakanne-is-four-quarters-short-of-a-dolar-crisis? LOL

    Thank you Keyser for questioning sarakannes sanity in the most ironic/entertaining way possible – even if your humor is entirely lost on her. Poor mite.

    And she rambles on and on and on…another chapter of the French comedy…

  20. Vixen Says:

    Oh, before I forget

    sarakanne to Keyser:(December 31, 2008 5:46 PM)
    …You seem like a smart guy, but where this woman is concerned, naive comes to mind….

    [url]http://keysersozeslair.blogspot.com/2008/12/caruso-and-heidimarie-and-keyser-and.html[/url]

    Sweetcheeks, you are far from being a smart girl and where Keyser is concerned, naive comes to mind.LOL

  21. sarakanne Says:

    Heidemarie Schnitzer posting here as “Vixen” brings to mind Shakespeare’s “methinks thee doth protest waaaaaaaaaaaay too much.”

    No one else but a fugitive criminal stalker would use the anonymity of the Internet to protest ad nausea charges she knows to be true.

    And Keyser, thanks for linking your traffic stats. The Tijuana evidence will be invaluable to authorities in Mexico along with Dr. Maria Berger, Judge Guenther Boehler and Dr. Karin Treichl.

    Shhhhhhhhhh, I can already hear the stalker’s keyboard being pounded away with denial.

  22. Vixen Says:

    No one else but a highly delusional and obsessed individual like sarakanne would use the the anonymity of the Internet to rave and rant ad nausea about things that exist only in her fantasy.

    Shhhhhhh, I can already hear the sarakanes keyboard being pounded away with the next boring rant….

  23. Vixen Says:

    Oh, and sweetcheeks, Shakespeare called. He wants his quote back. You have been using it every time when you are running out of arguments …LOL

  25. The Mayor Says:

    I’m not saying this is true, but wouldn’t it be a wonderful subplot if sarakanne was actually Vixon?

  26. Vixen Says:

    True the do…

    However, sweetcheeks ……those articles are clearly missing names like “Heidemarie Schnitzer”, or “Vixen” or the other names you like to pull out of your magic hat whenever your craving for attention gets the better of you.

    Those articles always say “the woman”, “a woman, “an unidentified woman” etc…

    I think those phrases speak for themselves..

    Ouch…..

  27. sarakanne Says:

    Since the laws of Schnitzer’s homeland Austria, Hitler and Josef Fritzl’s birthplace by the way, prohibit the name of the accused from being published until conviction, how easy it is to claim one is not who they really are. As a citizen of the USA, I am not subject to those laws and I can and I will publish her name and photo for all the world to see. This is what galls this woman.

    But then Schnitzer knows this all too well and plays it to the hilt. Then she hides behind it from her Tijuana spider hole.

    Who else would challenge these claims but Heidemarie Schnitzer herself? The answer: no one.

  28. Vixen Says:

    In short – you don’t have ANYTHING to proof that the
    woman those articles refer to is indeed Heidemarie Schnitzer, right?
    You can publish this name as often as you want it won’t change the fact that you have nothing to support your allegations. Nothing. Nada.

    Thus, your argument doesn’t hold, sweetcheeks….
    Now, I guess it is my turn to use dear old Shakespeare..“methinks thee doth protest waaaaaaaaaaaay too much.”
    LOL!

    Heidemarie Schnitzer remains at large hiding out on Mexico’s Baja peninsula where she is currently posting using i.p. address 201.160.172.69 from a Tijuana ISP. Fears continue to mount that this mentally unbalanced woman will breach the US/Mexico border and travel to LA to carry out her death threats against three people including CSI Miami’s David Caruso.

    I doubt those “unfamiliar with the case” care. Not everyone is so obsessed.

    Nice articles, however since those articles fail to mention any names, saras assumptions that the woman in this articles is indeed Heidemarie Schnitzer is fauilty at best.

    And the question remains if sara is believable at all since she has been caught LYING :
