Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which American state was the first to pass anti-stalking laws after a spate of murders that had started as stalking cases?

Answer: California

After Richard Farley shot and killed nine people and wounded four others after years of stalking fellow employee Laura Black, the state of California enacted some of the most stringent stalking laws in the nation. Within three years of California passing the first stalking law, all 50 states in the nation had passed laws of their own.A movie starring Brooke Shields and Richard Thomas was made about the incident and was called "I Can Make You Love Me".

In Britain it was called "The Stalking of Laura Black". Richard Farley was still sitting on death row 20 years later.
2. The United States does not have a monopoly on stalkers. The stalking murder of Shiori Ino in 1999 caused an uproar in which Asian country?

Answer: Japan

The stalking murder of Shiori Ino shocked the people of Japan. She and her family had attempted numerous times to report the man who was stalking her and sending unwanted gifts. The Japanese government took the position that by not making every effort to return the gifts that were left for her, she had led the unwanted suitor on.

They also attempted to cover up their own responsibility. The stalking laws in Japan were changed immediately after this incident.
3. Women engage in stalking as often as men do.

Answer: False

Women do engage in stalking but not as often as men do. Women tend to do it more often in daylight hours and are usually not as prone to violence. Women will also stalk other women as often as they stalk other men. Often this is because the female being stalked is seen as interfering with the stalker's imaginary relationship with a man she is interested in.
4. The star of the popular television show "My Sister Sam", what was the name of the actress stalked and killed by an obsessed fan in 1989?

Answer: Rebecca Schaeffer

Answer: Tom Cruise

Leatherman stalked both Cusack and Cruise at the same time. She was arrested numerous times and received probation each time. She sent letters and gifts to both men and would stand outside their homes for days on end. She is unusual in that most stalkers fixate on only one person.

6. John Hinkley Jr. stalked actress Jodie Foster for years before he attempted to kill which other person to gain her attention?

Answer: Ronald Reagan

John Hinkley Jr. developed a fascination with actress Jodie Foster after watching her play a child prostitute in the movie "Taxi Driver". He made many elaborate plans to get her attention but settled on attempting to assassinate Ronald Reagan. He shot four people during his attempt and was declared not guilty by reason of insanity, causing great public outcry.
7. Which North American law enforcement agency was sued in 2004 by Bonnie Mooney after her stalker of five years killed her friend and maimed her daughter?

Answer: RCMP

Ms. Mooney sued the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) after they refused to provide proper protection from her stalker. When she tried to make reports she was told to see a lawyer. This case is slightly different in that Ms. Mooney had a previous relationship with her stalker. In the end she lost her case and the defendant committed suicide.
8. When he stabbed her over ten times, how had the stalker of American movie actress Theresa Saldana obtained her home address?

Answer: Through her mother

He had spent years writing fan letters, attempting to meet her, following her from city to city. He was sure that they were soul mates from a past life. He received a 14 year prison sentence and then was extradited to Great Britain to be tried for a similar successful crime there.

He died in prison.
