Sheryl Crow Voices Concerns for Family after Stalker Shows Up in Kennett

NOVEMBER 22, 2004 - Posted at 3:11 p.m. CST

 

NEW YORK, NY - Singer and southeast Missouri native Sheryl Crow says she's concerned about her family's safety, after learning that an alleged stalker had asked them to help contact her. 

Crow testified today in New York that she heard about the accused stalker from her father, attorney Wendell Crow of Kennett, who told her the suspect had visited him in his law offices, saying he had a "message from God."

Ambrose Kappos, 38, of New York, is accused of breaking into Crow's dressing room at a concert venue where the Grammy award winner was due to perform in October of 2003.

Kappos is currently free on $15,000 bond.  He was discharged from the Navy last year after taking an emergency medical leave.

Prosecutors say Kappos flew from his naval base in Virginia in early 2003 to Missouri, to see Crow's sister and parents, after he found out where they lived by using the Internet.  The suspect reportedly told Wendell Crow that he found the family's home by "following a bird," and that he wanted a date with his daughter.
