Kaitlyn Siragusa, better known as Amouranth has finally seen her Estonian stalker arrested after a month.
Amouranth, the Twitch streamer and business mogul, has seen her stalker arrested after a month of harassment. According to Siragusa, the man from Estonia is ‘no longer in Houston’ after she had to call the police when he planned to break into her home.
The man had apparently sold his belongings to live out of a Houston hotel, allegedly hanging around Amouranth’s PO box waiting for her to collect what had been sent. In videos Metro.co.uk have found online, he would spend all day in the streets waiting for a chance to see her, while exercising and responding to viewers.
While online stalking and harassment aren’t new, Twitch has inspired a new level of commitment to the crime, with many streamers reporting similar problems.
Recently an ex-cop was found to be the source of years of harassment for one Twitch streamer, who cut their streaming career short over it, and people like Pokimane have encountered fans finding her while she streams in public.
This is also the second home invasion attempt to happen to streamers this month, as JustaMinx and CodeMiko’s home also had an attempted break-in.
The Estonian man was in Houston for an alleged total of 44 days. According to Siragusa, on his last day before the arrest, he changed into his formal clothes (the only other clothes he’d brought) and made his way with his saxophone case to her house.
He then spent 30 minutes wandering around and ‘casing’ the house before being arrested by Houston law enforcement. Amouranth states that it took 33 minutes for her to get through to police and have them show up at her house.
In a detailed Twitter thread on the matter, Siragusa details what she calls the stalker’s ‘Buffalo Bill’ style videos of him dancing in the nude. She claims this contributed to the ‘manifesto’ he had created, by streaming about her every day since he arrived in America.
