‘Slap on the Wrist’ Penalties for Stalking Lead to Murder, UK Study Finds

Results from a six month investigation of more than 350 homicides, has found a strong link between some key stalking behaviors and murders.

The research, which was conducted at the University of Gloucestershire in the UK, and titled, Exploring the Relationship Between Stalking and Homicide, found that when the intention behind the stalking was identified, managing the fixation could lead to countless lives being saved.

Criminologists found that staking was present in 94 percent of the cases they looked at, including covert watching, which occurred in 63 percent of the circumstances.

Other triggers highlighted related to the control that the stalker had over their victim, as well as threats to kill.

26-year-old nurse Jane Clough from the UK was stalked by her ex-partner and subsequently stabbed to death in June 2010.

Her ex-partner, Jonathan Vass, had been stalking her, and she had even predicted her own death in her diary.

Her parents, John and Penny Clough, have been fighting for tougher action on stalkers since her death.

Tonight’s episode of Web of Lies on Investigation Discovery traces the mysterious disappearance, kidnapping and murder of Arkansas real estate agent Beverly Carter, which sparked a viral search that led to false identities and fake clues.

The episode, called Final Sale, explores what happened to 50-year-old Beverly after she met with a prospective buyer at a remote house. The buyer, Arron Lewis, suffocated and killed Carter during a home showing in September 2014.

Prosecutors in the Little Rock trial said Lewis — along with his estranged wife — lured Carter to the property by arranging the fake house showing then demanded a ransom after kidnapping her.

But the ransom plot went wrong, and Carter was killed. Her body was found in a shallow grave at a concrete plant where Lewis was previously employed.
