Home Security: Stalker Frames Victim Husband for Child Porn

If there was ever a reason for you to invest in a home security system this article is it.

A crazy guy broke into the home of a woman who he was stalking. The woman is married, but apparently the guy didn't care. When he broke into the home he logged onto the victim's husband's PC and downloaded child pornography.

Then he took the hard drive and sent it to the local police with a note to the police identifying the owner of the hard drive. The idea behind the scheme was to get his stalking victim husband arrested and give the impression that the victim's husband was a child predator.

After he sent the hard drive to the police he was quickly arrested. Fortunately, the cops saw through his ruse. After investigating the stalker they found pictures on his computer that indicated he had broke into the house numerous times and snapped photos of the husband's calendar so he could break into the home whenever he pleased.

And you think you have problems?

Stalking is a topic that I will get into in another post. What immediately bugs me about this story is the fact there was NO home alarm, NO security cameras, and the stalker was easily able to enter and exit the home at will, which tells me they probably didn't lock the home.

It's 2010 people, and the crazies are out in full force. Don't think it can happen to you?
