Cell Phone Stalking
Does this seem real to anyone?
Somehow, the callers have gained control of the family cell phones, Price and Kuykendall say. Messages received by the sisters include snatches of conversation overheard on cell-phone mikes, replayed and transmitted via voice mail. Phone records show many of the messages coming from Courtneyâs phone, even when sheâs not using it Â even when itâs turned off.
Price and Kuykendall say the stalkers knew when they visited Fircrest police and sent a voice-mail message that included a portion of their conversation with a detective.
The harassment seems to center on Courtney, but it extends to her parents, her aunt Darcy and Courtneyâs friends, including Taylor McKay, who lives across the street in Fircrest. Her mother, Andrea McKay, has received messages similar to those left at the Kuykendall household and cell phone bills approaching $1,000 for one month. She described one recent call: She was slicing limes in the kitchen. The stalkers left a message, saying they preferred lemons.
âTaylor and Courtney seem to be the hub of the harassment, and different people have branched off from there," Andrea McKay said. âI donât know how theyâre doing it. They were able to get Taylorâs phone number through Courtneyâs phone, and every contact was exposed."
McKay, a teacher in the Peninsula School District, said she and Taylor recently explained the threats to the principal at Gig Harbor High School, which Taylor attends. A Gig Harbor police officer sat in on the conversation, she said.
While the four people talked, Taylorâs and Andreaâs phones, which were switched off, sat on a table. While mother and daughter spoke, Taylorâs phone switched on and sent a text message to her motherâs phone, Andrea said.
Here's another report.
There's something going on here, but I just don't believe it's entirely cell phone hacking. Something else is going on.
