First a little background. A couple months ago I posted in PE that Copper had left her moron of a boyfriend and moved in with a friend. Since then, she met a new guy and moved in with him very quickly. She was not there 6 weeks when she realized that a) she moved on too fast and b) this new guy was bad news. On the first of November she came to stay with me for awhile. (later today she is moving out, and into a youth program where she will be living with 3 other girls and a house mother). Anyways. This new guy is an absolute whackjob. He is X-military, a cop wannabe, his X-wife and kid already have a restraining order on him. Evidently he still stalks the X-wife (he has driven past her home with Copper IN THE CAR) and now has begun to stalk Copper. She wasn't staying here 2 days and he called my home. My HOME NUMBER! I don't know how he got it, as Copper never calls me on that line, always my cell phone. He never even knew my last name. We have no clue how he got that number. Anyways I called him back and told him to stop calling my home and to leave my daughter alone. He has left countless text messages and has tried to contact her on her Myspace account. She blocked him, so then he contacted her on her obsoloete Myspace account (she got a new one after she left the leprechaun). Of course she has saved all the messages. He also keeps showing up at her job (she works at Kohls) and has left notes on her car. A couple days ago he said to her "so I hear you are moving to such-and-such". Copper got really scared because she never told him she was moving there. Now we think he has hacked her private Myspace account; otherwise we have no idea how he got that information. Now, his messages to her started out alopogetic (she left him after he was drunk and threw all her stuff out into the alley) but have turned accusitory. He has given her "the rundown" on why he thinks she won't give him another chance, and has told her that she is like her father (whom she has not seen since she was 8 years old). Basically he is trying to get her dander up. Well today she saw him in MY PARKING LOT out by her car. After he left she went out to see if he left her another note, but found nothing. We wonder if he was trying to get the VIN on her car. We called the cops (and I called Matt!) and got a report number. The cops called him and told him to leave her alone or they would arrest him. She will be going to get a restraining order on him. But, he does not obey the one with his wife, why would he obey this one? I just don't get guys like this. They were together SIX WEEKS and he is acting like she broke his heart into a million pieces. Move on already. She is very scared, and I am scared for her. Tink (whom I kept home today, I let her play hookey to spend one last day with her "sissy") is scared to death. Prayers for her safety would be appreciated. She may be all grown up, but she is still my baby girl.
