Although the name of the assailant (obsessed fan) has been published in the news and is commonly known known
his identity will not be mentioned anywhere on this website. This website (and the Facebook page) are
both meant to honor the memory of Rebecca Schaeffer. Showing his name anywhere on these two sites
would, in my opinion, be inappropriate. Criminals sometimes crave having their name forever connected
with a person or an event, a satisfaction that will not be given here.
Thank you everyone for your understanding. understanding
