The Bjork Stalker
21 year old Ricardo López was a pest control officer who attempted to kill Icelandic singer Björk in 1996. Over a nearly nine-month period, López made a video diary at his apartment wherein he mused about Björk and various other topics while making a letter bomb rigged with sulfuric acid intended to kill or disfigure the singer.
On September 12, López sent the package to Björk’s residence in London, returned home and filmed his suicide. His decomposing body, along with his video diary and handwritten diary detailing his plot to kill Björk, were found by Florida police four days later. After viewing the tapes, police contacted Scotland Yard, who intercepted the package without incident.
(His videos can be found on YouTube and other video sharing sites. However, they are very disturbing and graphic.)
