This is a terrifying story that could've ended very differently. And it's sad that it took her stalker's death for it to stop, and the only way she was able to experience relief and gain control of her life once more.
Twitter user, @johnniejae, shared her terrifying experience as a teenager, having an a stalker. The encounter started innocently enough, at the library and just escalated from there.

Additionally, an estimated 5.7% of men (or nearly 6.5 million men) have experienced stalking victimization during their lifetimes. And among female stalking victims, an estimated 60.8% were stalked by a former partner.
Pretty scary, wouldn't you say?
