    TYPOLOGYTYPOLOGY OF STALKERS
    Zona, Sharma, and Lane (1993) distinguished between three major categories of stalkers:
    The Simple Obsessional stalker,
    The Love Obsessional stalker, and
    The Erotomanic stalker.
    SIMPLESIMPLE OBSESSIONAL STALKERSTALKERS
    The first category of stalkers, the Simple Obsessional stalker, represents the most common form of stalking and generally involves cases wherein the victim and stalker had some prior relationship. In many instances, the stalker is a former intimate partner, a boyfriend or husband, and the stalking is an extension of domestic violence. Most cases of simple obsessional stalking involve male perpetrators and female victims. The nature of the prior intimate relationship is not always a marriage or long-term common law relationship. Some instances of simple obsessional stalking may also involve brief dating relationships. The common characteristic of these cases, however, is the existence of a former interpersonal relationship between the victim and offender.
    The simple obsessional stalker is generally characterized as socially immature and is usually low in self-esteem, insecure, and prone to jealousy in relationships. These individuals have difficulty maintaining relationships and it is hypothesized that they use violence in relationships to maintain control over their partners and, following the dissolution of relationships, they engage in stalking behaviors to continue to exercise control over their partners. The motives of the simple obsessional stalker often reflect two opposing desires – to force their ex-partner back into the relationship and to exact some measure of revenge. Zona et al. (1993) described the stalking behaviors of simple obsessional stalkers as a “sustainable rage in response to a perceived narcissistic injury” (p. 901).

    LEGAL PERSPECTIVES
    The First Formal Stalking Law
    State of California,The first formal stalking law in North America was not passed until 1990 -in California in response to the highly publicized murder of actress Rebecca Schaeffer. Initially, the law stated:
    A stalker had to make a “credible threat of death or great bodily injury” toward the victim, placing the victim in reasonable fear of the same.

    Welcome to Your New Wiki!the PSYCHOLOGY OF STALKING!
    What is stalking? Regardless of your knowledge of criminal law, you would probably recognize when you had been assaulted, had your life threatened, or were defrauded. But how would you know that you had been the victim of stalking? What distinguishes stalking from other forms of violence enough to make it a separate entity of criminal behavior? J. Reid Meloy (1998), a psychologist and expert on stalking has observed that ‘‘stalking is an old behavior, but a new crime’’ (p. xix). Popular fictionalized accounts of stalking are certainly familiar to the public. In the 1970s, Clint Eastwood played a disc jockey stalked by an obsessed fan in Play Misty for Me. Film audiences leaped out of their seats in the 1980s as Glen Close harassed Michael Douglas in Fatal Attraction. Alica Silverstone stalked Cary Elwes in the 1993 film, The Crush, and nearly 10 years later, Jesse Bradford was subjected to the unwanted attention and pursuit of Erika Christensen in Swimfan. Yet in spite of its longevity and frequent characterizations in mainstream media, there is still remarkably little agreement on what constitutes stalking
