Nationwide Legal Investigations and Marc J. Tropeano PI are experts in Stalking Investigations
Stalking investigations are not mainstream. Too many people take the idea of stalking too lightly. It is, in fact, a serious crime that often puts a person’s life in danger. Stalking involves but isn’t limited to repeatedly watching someone, following them, monitoring their actions, or even harassing them. This can occur online known as cyber-stalking or in-person through giving unwanted gifts or the like. Being stalked adds a lot of mental stress for the victim. This may leave the victim feeling stressed, vulnerable, and even anxious. There may even be trouble sleeping and also concentrating at school or work.
In the United States alone, over 3 million people are stalked, with the majority being 18-24 being the highest. While many assume that stalkers are strangers, the fact remains that 3 out of 4 people are stalked by someone they know. It’s essential to call 911 if you are in immediate danger and report everything to the police. Sometimes, it is necessary to obtain a protection order to prevent the stalker from coming near you.
If you are being stalked & believe you may be in a stalking investigation, keep all evidence. This can include:
Keep a list of all the times, dates, and places where these incidents have occurred. Also, make sure you add the names of those who have witnessed what happened.
When it comes to investigating a stalking case, it is to stop the harassment and to collect any evidence to prosecute. It usually all starts with interviewing the person being stalked. Private investigators need as much information as possible, along with any available evidence. The potential for physical violence at this point should be considered and not minimalized by either the victim, police or private investigators.
It’s also vital that the victim not make any contact during the investigation and to have them record all events of the stalker. There is also increasing the victim’s security. i.e. a safety or contingency plan. This is also when private investigators look into all supporting evidence. Our Los Angeles Private Investigators may look into criminal databases and past history of the stalker to see if any relevant information will help in the investigation.
All information will be documented and investigated. This can include technological evidence in cases of cyberstalking and the seizing of physical evidence by the police. If necessary, a search warrant may be issued for further investigation by law enforcement.
Stalking is a traumatic and life-changing event. It can trigger nightmares, loss of sleep, mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and even a lack of control. These reactions though stressful and hard to handle, are typical in these situations. If you feel you are being stalked call authorities & ask for help from friends and family. Develop a safety plan and even find a peer advocate group for additional support. Your safety is imperative.
