January is National Stalking Awarenss Month
The Use of Technology to Stalk
Real Fear, Real Crime
Stalking is a lethal crime. It affects more than one million women and nearly 400,000 men in America each year. Tragically, seventy-six percent of female homicide victims were also stalked in the year prior to their murder. More than half of these victims reported the stalking to police before being murdered. It is the hope of Peggy Klinke's family that this tape will give the information and tools to effectively intervene in stalking cases.
