‘Homicide in slow motion’: Police urged to tackle stalking amid rise of tracking tech
VANCOUVER — Stephanie Forster did everything right.
She obtained a restraining order, changed her phone number and moved three times in six months. She once found an Apple AirTag in her car so she asked police to search the vehicle for other trackers.
But none of it helped, her sister and a women’s advocate say.
Forster, 39, was shot and killed outside her Coquitlam home on Dec. 8, and while the police investigation is ongoing, her estranged husband, who died days later, was the main suspect.
“Stalking is homicide in slow motion,” Angela Marie MacDougall, executive director of Battered Women Support Services, said in an interview.
