8. Elisha Strom's blog is amazing
Elisha Strom's blog is really quite interesting.

The whole site with every article can be seen as one big page if you go here.

Leaving aside the legal issues, it's a testament to a totally obsessed woman. Celebrity stalkers and John Hinckley's "thing" for Jodie Foster are nothing compared with Elisha Strom's obsession with Charlottesville Police detective Brian O'Donnell and the JADE Task Force. Apparently Elisha once had a close relationship with O'Donnell that went bad: See her post

That relationship, whatever it was, started when Elisha Strom was a star witness in the politically-tinged trial of her husband, in which Brian N. O'Donnell was the lead FBI - Joint Terrorism Task Force agent: /

Its not clear how the relationship went bad, but Elisha says O'Donnells actions inspired her anti-JADE blogging and stalking, as she makes clear on her very first post at

She also had what appears to be a sexual relationship with another unnamed officer linked to the JADE Task Force (who she nicknamed "Boomslang"), and was using him to get confidential information about other officers and about JADE operations. See her post

She also says O'Donnell (who she nicknames "Longhead" or "LH") bullied her: See

Right at the end of the above post, she implies that she'll retaliate somehow if the FBI (probably meaning O'Donnell, who works with the FBI as well as the JADE and JTTF task forces) comes down on her.

It's not clear what she means by retaliation, but revelations of inside information on agents - possibly including marital infidelity and law violations - seem the most likely: In other posts, she claims to have discovered a married agent's mistress/girlfriend. She asserts she had close relationships herself with the possibly-married O'Donnell and "Boomslang." Maybe it's a kind of blackmail - "Leave me alone or I'll tell all I know." Were there other demands, possibly for money or other favors, we don't know about?

It's cosmically bizarre the lengths to which this woman went to stalk her prey: following agents into stores and gyms, finding out their pants sizes, tailing them within inches of their bumpers for miles into the country, going to the property rolls and then letting everyone know where their families live, where they do target shooting, what kind of cars they drive (even down to updates when something is added to or repaired on the vehicle), lying in wait for them at home, at work, at stakeouts, at court. When did she have time to work - or to raise the 12-year-old daughter she claims to have? Just the writing alone must have taken many many hours, to say nothing of the stalking.
