I walk home from work past the street where Dominique Dunne lived - Rangely Ave. in West Hollywood. Dunne was strangled to death in the driveway of this home by her ex-boyfriend John Thomas Sweeney who served less than 4 years for her murder. I think about Dunne every time I pass by and since I started working on the next issue of Dead in Hollywood it has become a particularly poignant part of my walk. “Stalked" follows the lives of Dunne, actress Rebecca Schaeffer, and cheerleader/model Linda Sobek. All three women are stalked to their death by deranged men with criminal records. In death, these women are responsible for new laws that are put in place to protect stalking and domestic violence victims.
Imagine being on the verge of stardom, only to be stuck down by an obsessed fan. Dead in Hollywood: Stalked (Issue #7) documents the strange and tragic deaths of Rebecca Schaeffer, Dominique Dunne, and Linda Sobeck. All that potential lost.
