Celebrity Stalking CasesNameClassDateProfessorCelebrity Stalking Cases Stalking can result in the death of a victim. It is the repeated harassment or unwanted attention directed at an individual that does not favor the attention. The National Center for Victims of Crime's Stalking Resource Center defines stalking as a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person fear (FRIS, 2008). This is a crime in most states in America. If someone repeatedly harasses another individual they will be charged with stalking. In 1989 actress Rebecca Schaefer was shot in front of her apartment complex by an obsessed fan. Robert John Bardo shot Schaeffer after stalking her and finding out her address. The star of "My Sister Sam" was stalked by Bardo for over three years but Schaefer was unaware of the obsession of the stalker. She made no attempt to protect herself because she was not made aware of the problem. After receiving a beautiful letter from Bardo, Schaeffer responded with kindness. This only fueled Barodo's obsession and after attempting to see her and being denied, he decided she deserved to die. Schaefer
