First of all, I was granted a permanent restraining order against the stalker, very dangerous convicted felon who has terrorized me for over 10 months.
As I left Universal to run errands in Valley Village, I walked down Laurel Canyon near Magnolia, and was almost accosted by a predator. The street was deserted because it was so hot that day. A man in a blacked-out BMW, pulled up to the crosswalk just as I was crossing, and shouted "Hey Beautiful! Come here." I had been subconsciously nervous from watching the news all week about Ariel Castro, and when I looked at the man's face he just seemed to be up to no good. He had a baseball hat on backwards and looked like a gang member in a stolen car.
I kept walking and ignored him. I stopped to look into a store, which happend to be a frame and mirror store. The guy pulled his car over to the curb and stopped. He shouted to me: "Hey, I said COME HERE!" I got scared for a minute and ducked into the store. When I thought he was gone I came back outside but he had pulled a few feet up so I couldn't see him. He again asked me to come over to his car. He said, "Hey lemme ask you a question, I need directions... " I kept walking and shouted out, "I can't, I'm married." Then I ducked into an art supply store.
Disclaimer: Everything printed below was reported to me by police, hospitals, neighbors, shelters and is my understanding and opinion of events:
DISCLAIMER: All of the words about Kirby Cramer were told to me by the police, Cheri, the D.A. and the Domestic Violence Shelter.
"I've been trying to help my friend Cheri Hall Cramer, the mother of Louis Cramer, Trey Cramer, and Scott Cramer, reuinte with her children. Cheri is a domestic abuse survivor who was reportedly left for dead by her husband Kirby Cramer. According to reports, her husband tried to get rid of his wife and then covered his crime by making sure she was broke and homeless. He apparently spread horrible lies about her to everyone in Fallbrook, Rolling Hills. He pretended that his wife left him, that she was insane and that "he" was the victim! He never stopped telling this story until he had even brainwashed his own kids. Apparently, even the guard at the gate believed Kirby Cramer's story. Everyone in Fallbrook believed that Cheri bashed her own head in with a hammer, and not her husband.
According to hospital records and eyewitness reports, Cheri suffered a brain aneurysm. Her husband threw her out on the street, and later after a lengthy court battle in which the Cramer family bribed judges and spent a fortune trying to make Cheri look insane, Cheri was assigned to a group therapy class. It was in this group that she was stalked and captured by a predator who locked her up in his apartment and put a camera on her.
In October of 2009, we rescued her with the help of police. Her children still don't know that she is alive. She had a brain aneurysm and was so debilitated, she has been without a home. She has just been wandering from place to place, trying to stay alive long enough to see her children. Cheri is blonde, sweet, brilliant, and a graduate of Cal Poly. She was once a happy mother who lived in a lavish estate and home schooled her children. I have never met a sweeter soul. No one should have to go through what Cheri has gone through.
All she wants is to let her children know she is alive, but she is scared he will finallly kill her and she has no resources to even get into the gated community where her children live. She is supposed to see her children, but her husband made it impossible by threatenting her and by buying off people to prevent her from getting near them. Her husband abused the court system with endless appeals and managed to pay off so many people, he eventually bankrupted her. Even the D.A. said, "you are not a minority. The case is not worth it."
