My sister, Peggy Klinke, was murdered by her stalker.
I am sharing her story to educate, protect and
prevent future tragedy related to this deadly crime.
--Debbie Riddle, National Speaker, Activist, Stalking Awareness
After three years of emotional abuse, 28 year old Peggy Klinke, ends her relationship with her boyfriend, Patrick Kennedy. He stalked Peggy for over a year until, one week before he was set to go to trial on stalking charges, he murdered her, then took his own life.
There is only one way to eliminate the fear and violence of stalking. With words. From Congressional briefings to historic national conferences, criminal justice systems, college and high school campuses, I continue to honor my sister’s memory by speaking out about this tragic crime.
From helping to establish January as National Stalking Awareness Month to working closely with influential leaders like Joe Biden and Erin Brockovich, I am dedicated to making an impact regarding stalking awareness in our country and I plan to continue making great strides toward positive change.
