If your referring to my story its just that -- a personal story. You
won't find it in the paper and it certainly wasn't in the local news.
Heck in today's world of stalkers and murders I'm amazed I couldn't
find others with similar problems via a search. In any event if you
really want proof I can at the very least probably dig up a police
report and pdf it to you -- for proper monetary compensation of not
less than $25.

For what its worth by sheer coincidence the idiot called from a pay
phone last night an left a message. He has probably figured out that
something isn't right since he could leave a message with the first
try on a pay phone and couldn't do it again, since I blocked it.
