Does anyone know what neighborhood the stalker on the news is in? I hope he gets caught before someone gets hurt.

Never heard of it. If you saw it on the news, didn't they say where?

I don't think that the woman he is stalking wants him to know what neighborhood she lives in.

Here is the story:



PIKEVILLE, Ky (WYMT)- A Lexington man has been indicted in Pike County one 1st degree stalking charges, and officials tell us this is not the first time he has been charged with the crime.

Harry Martin Chapman is a man Pike County officials say they need to find as soon as possible.

"According to our newest indictment, he is terrorizing this woman, and the stalking of her has begun since December of last year, so for about 60 days," said Pike County Commonwealth's Attorney Rick Bartley.

But, this is not the first time Chapman has been charged with stalking this same victim.

"Even though he has been convicted two times of stalking her, even though he has been to prison over it, he just will not leave her alone," said Bartley.

Commonwealth's Attorney Rick Bartley says there is one problem, though.

"We have no idea where he is, he is not under parole supervision, not under probation, so he could be outside at this time or close to this woman's house. So it's a very scary situation," said Bartley.

Bartley says Chapman was sentenced to 11 years in prison in 2008 on a combination of charges, but he got out early last year, and he says it wasn't long before the stalking started again.

"One time recently she had the state police there at her home when he called and said he was on the Mountain Parkway on his way to Pike County to kill her. And luckily he turned around once he was told the police were there, but he said he would come back," said Bartley.

Bartley hopes if they catch him he will get a longer sentence.

"We can't lock him up the rest of his life, but with these new charges he is looking at a 20 year prison sentence. So if we can get him in custody, get him convicted, then maybe we can give her some relief for a longer period of time," said Bartley.

He says the victim is trying to disguise her location, but he says the only protection for this woman is for Chapman to be behind bars.

Bartley says the victim and the alleged stalker used to have a relationship many years ago.

If you know where Chapman is, you should call police.

I would bet he already knows where she lives. How else would she know he was stalking her again. For the public to help, it would help to know about where to look.

I disagree with Rick Bartley on many things, and I also disagree with him again. He says the only solution is to put this animal behind bars. He is %100 wrong. He already HAS been behind bars, and let out without serving 1/2 of his sentence. Now, he is free and stalking the same victim. Didn't see that one coming. The only thing that will stop this stalker, and protect this woman, is to train her and her family/friends to use a lethal weapon, and actually use it if he violates the restraining order. Then, see if a Pike County grand jury will indict for that community, and state wide service. No they won't. Protect yourself. The law will not.

Same attitude that I've always had. If you want something done, you gotta do it yourself. If he called me telling me that he was coming to kill me, I'd be ready for him.

If they can't find him then it seems to me he has fled which means he is no longer stalking if he ever was. Story doesn't make much sense to me.

All I got to say about this sitution is its Crazy. For one reason the man should never have been let out early and even though it did happen he should have at the very least been on some sort of supervision. Not just let free and clear w/out even serving 1/2 of his sentence. Whats wrong w/ the justice system. Now when they do catch him they will take him to trial, sentence him, then set him free.

She has probably moved to avoid him.

I re-read the story and it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. I also doubt if she has moved, being that he came back here. Was she having contact with him while he was locked up? Something isn't right. He could be her ex and she's mad at him, we(the public), just don't really know.
