Excellent point! I am even more concerned about younger girls/women AND males, who think the person they're dating is just being "sweet" or "protective" by wanting to know where they are at all times, who their friends are, to be able to take/return their calls IMMEDIATELY, etc. You're right when you say that the signs are there early on...those "little" signs are often misinterpreted, though.

I lived looking over my shoulder for years. I had a controlling husband who turned into a psychotic ex-husband. I was stalked. He knew my every move. He called the kids and told them he knew what they watched on tv or what they were eating. A restraining order didn’t help. It ticked him off. He used friends, co-workers or even the police to follow me and get information. I tried to move on-got remarried. He sent the police to my wedding ‘to check on the welfare of the children’. He left over 20 voicemail messages while on my honeymoon telling me to come home immediatly or he’d sue me for ‘abandoning my children’ and take full custody and how I'd never see them again. He threatened my new husband and his family. In the beginning I had a restraining order through the family court. I was told I could obtain an attorney and file contempt charges. HUH??? Once the divorce was final, I got a civil order and was told IF they could catch him in the act then he could be arrested. I, luckily, have not seen nor heard from him in the past year- but it doesn’t get rid of the fear that he is still out there somewhere- and how seeing me finally happy will set him off. Once you live under a microscope, you never lose that feeling. You just never ever know what they are capable of. My heart still drops to my stomach if I think I see him somewhere. It's really sick that the person who vowed to love and protect was the same person who vowed he’d never let me go- EVER.

Another sad case of a person not knowing how to let go. You cannot FORCE anyone to love or want you, and a bruised ego will hurt much less than losing your freedom (or your life if the police or loved ones of the victim catch up with you first).
Prayers for the loved ones of this woman...so sad.
My thoughts exactly. You can't MAKE someone love you. Where's your pride? Know when you're not wanted and go away.....

I had a case like this when I was first seeing my wife (long ago, before we were married). This guy had latched on to her for no apparent reason (she hadn't even dated him!). RO's do nothing for people who are latched on like this. I had to pick her up at her apartment when we were dating as she was too afraid of something like this happening. It went on for a while longer, and I ended up having to 'set him straight'. He did not want me around her, near her, much less dating her and he was not going to stop. We had a 'talk' together and he stopped.
To the young lady, I am so sorry that we failed you as a society. To the family, I am also sorry that we failed to protect your loved one. I will add you all to my long prayer list that I have made from the forums here...so many people need God in their lives now. Here in USA and around the world...
To all obsessive men/women out there: Stating the Obvious is absolutely right. You MUST MOVE ON. Obsessing over someone who does NOT love you, does NOT want you, and WILL NOT be with you is a waste of your lives. Also, the family of the victims of stalking may very well catch up to you, and then you really WILL suffer. It is not worth it!! Find another woman (or man if you have to) who truly loves you. Treat them like an angel from above, and value their lives ABOVE your own. That is how true love works. I would give my life for my wife in a heartbeat, never take her life! Please, if you are stuck on someone and cannot get over them, seek help, not a gun. It will only end badly for you if you continue down a path where no one wants you to be in the first place!! MOVE ON, ALONE IF YOU MUST.
Very well said. It's nice to know there are still some people left in this world like you. I hope you got through to at least one person out there.

Thank you, BG. And yes, we certainly did get through to him. And the nonsense STOPPED. This was a case of the family (although we were not married yet) taking preventative measures on jerks that cannot take NO for an answer, before a tragedy like this one occurred. This is why I don't understand the gun crime rate. People underestimate the power of a good, old fashioned a$$ whipping with some of these men. There is no need for deadly force most of the time. Then nobody dies, and everyone goes on with their LIVES, which they still have!

Thank you for responding, and keep yourself safe and look for the warning signs that others have posted in anyone you feel on the inside might be dangerous. Trust your gut...smc.

I heard that the woman was sleeping with the man Gregory Sean Martinez who was arrested last month that worked at BMW for spreading HIV and giving it to his girlfriend and possibly others. They say she was his supervisor when he worked in the paint shop. She supposedly found out she had it and had not known she exposed and gave it to the guy who killed her and that's why he got in a psychotic rage and killed her. He found out HE had it and could take it. Has anyone else heard this?

This is what you get from the "it's all about me" society we live in. The notion that each once of us has to have everything we want, when we want, is pushed down our throats from the time we are little. Look at the reality show's. It's all about me. Look at our schools. When little Johnny fails it is not his fault but the school system. Nothing that happens to us in this country is our fault, it is always something else. When we live our lives like this for long enough, we start to believe it. Why I am not suprised this is happening more and more. We are spoiled brats.
things aren't that bad....America still is a great place to live...sorry but people will always be killing people..for one absurd reason or another...

No, I have not heard this nor do I know if it's true or not. However, if it is true, it would explain (although certainly NOT EXCUSE) his actions. IF he gave her a death-sentence disease, I could understand the anger a bit more than just a bruised ego. Do you have any sources you can post for us to refer to? Or is this a rumour?

Excuse me, I meant "IF She gave HIM a death-sentence disease (...)". Sorry about that.

GREGORY MARTINEZ WAS ARRESTED THE SAME DAY AT NOON AND IS BEING HELD WITHOUT BOND IN THE SPARTANBURG COUNTY JAIL. ALSO HERE IS THE TOPIX BLOG ABOUT HIM: http://www.topix.com/forum/source/wltx/TCLE7U...

I CAN'T SAY IF HE KILLED HER FOR THAT BUT I KNOW FOR A DEFINITE FACT THAT SHE SLEPT WITH HIM AND WAS EXPOSED TO HIV AS WELL 40-50 OTHER BMW WORKERS BUT IN MY MIND I'VE BEEN PUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER AND EVERYTING FITS. THE NEWS SAID THEY SPOKE TO MR. IRBY'S SISTER AND SHE SAID FOR THE PAST 3 WEEKS HE HAD BEEN DEPRESSED, CRYING, AND LOSING WEIGHT. TRUE ENOUGH THOSE ARE SIGNS OF DEPRESSION BUT ALSO CAN BE SIGNS OF A SICK MAN WHO FOUND OUT HE WAS HIV POSITIVE!

Thank you for responding...although I kind of hoped it was a rumour! If this is true, it will complicate things quite a bit. 40-50 men? Really? That is an awful lot (in my opinion).

yes 40-50 men and women including his wife who is the reason he is behind bars and the reason all these other people knew to go and get tested. i think she is a hero for standing up for the wrong he did and filing a police report against him. your're also right if true this will complicate this case even more. i pray for both families in this matter!

Good grief. I think praying for them all is pretty much the extent of what we can do for them anyway. I am glad I am not the prosecutor in this case--I've never heard of anything like it (on this scale).

See no one knows the story. He had just found out she gave him HIV...That is enough to make a man go off the damn deep end.........He was not stalking her. He was trying to find out why she gave him HIV.

Yall dont have a clue what yall talking about. He had just found out his girlfriend of several years had given him HIV. No he should not have shot her, but hell that is enough to drive a person over the deep end. She had already killed him.

Well if she had aids, that's a different story imo.

If she's spreading aids, this guy just helped society imo.

She's not spreading HIV she got it from Gregory Sean Martinez one of her co-workers who she was supervising in the paint shop before he changed over to the Assembly line. She found out just like everyone else that she had it. When his face and the story was platered all over the news and newspapers. I know the one who filed the initial report against him. she did this to her very own husband because he never once parted his mouth to tell her what he had known he had since 2002 and maybe sooner and his mom knew also and let them get married without saying anything. He had slept with and exposed this to over 50 women and men. May god help them all! My friend is the reason all these other people knew to get tested! I look at her as a hero and a life saver!
