Transcript for Crazy Stupid Love: Revenge Porn
Well, they say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but they clearly haven't met the man you're about to. He has a bag of tricks that could give glenn close a run for her money. Authorities say he had his own weapons, an iphone, the internet and a sex cape his ex-boyfriend had no idea existed. How he tracked his ex-girlfriend and trashed her reputation, keystroke by keystroke. And it all started with some pleasant chitchat at 35,000 feet. It all started with what seemed to be a fairy tale flight for a young mother who thought she was lucky to meet the charming man seated right next to her. You met him on a flight? I met him on a flight from boston to washington, d.C. Reporter: You hear about people meeting on planes all the time. It's fun, you know. Reporter: So fun, it seemed an unexpected romance was about to take off, too. He seemed like a very nice person. Reporter: You talked the whole time? Yeah. Yes. Reporter: And when the flight landed, soraida hicks says the gentleman beside her, bruce stimon, asked for her number. And I was like, "well, okay. Why not?" Reporter: Why not? He told her he was in the d.C. Area often on business. And it wasn't long before their first date. In fact, they would go out three times before she would even reveal where she lived. And when she did? He sent you flowers? Yeah, that was the reason why he wanted my address. He wanted to send me flowers. Every day, it was something. Reporter: He wasn't just showering her with gifts. This a downpour. Chocolate, shoes, lingerie. I would get home and it would be in front of my door. Reporter: But it was the next gift that would come with strings attached. But those strings were invisible. He gave me an iphone as a gift. The iphone is where everything started. Reporter: Because authorities believe that iphone would become bruce stimon's most powerful tool to ack her. He made sure the gps with that built-in locator was turned on. So he knew where you were at every moment? Yes. And, of course, I didn't know he was doing that. Reporter: Not only was he tracking her, he was studyin her, downloading all of her numbers -- her friends, her family. He was watching who she was texting, who she was messaging on facebook. And she says, when she told him things were moving too fast, his next move turned dark. So, he took all the contacts? Yes. Reporter: In the phone? In the phone. Reporter: And began sending them messages? Messages. Yes, he started sending message to all my friends saying I had STDs. Reporter: And that was just his first message. Authorities say the next one would link all of her friends to a website where he had listed soraida as an escort. How did you feel at that moment? I think it is the worst thing that a woman can ever go through. I never even went to those sites. I never even know they existed. Reporter: Soraida is convinced it was her text messages to male friends that set him off. It was jealousy, I think. Reporter: Was any of it romantic? No. No. Reporter: But he thought it was? Yes. Reporter: And when she wouldn't take him back -- he's, like, "you and everybody will know you as a prostitute, and I'll make sure that your family, your friends, your co-worker, everybody know. I'll make sure they all know." Reporter: That was the threat? That was the threat. Reporter: And authorities say he delivered on that threat, posting more profiles of her online. With my office number. And he put in there that i provide service for my branch because it was a bank. Reporter: So, you had men calling you at the bank? At the bank, yes. They wanted me to have sex with them. Reporter: She lost her job and lost her identity because when she went online herself, she discovered who she'd become in everyone else's eyes. I thought it was the end of my world. I thought that everything i worked for was gone. Reporter: Authorities say he would find other ways to terrorize her, too. He cancelled my water. He cancelled my heat. He canceled my electricity. Reporter: Why was he doing this? He wanted me to call him and say, "help me." Reporter: Instead, she was pleading "help me" to police, just as authorities say bruce stimon was about deliver his biggest blow yet -- posting a sex tape she had no idea even existed. He secretly recorded the two of you having sex. Yes. And I don't even know how he took that video. I was like, "how dirty can you be? You're sending this to my family, to my daughter, to my kids, to my kids' friends." I couldn't believe it. But I was living it. Reporter: And her daughter was about to be living it, too, because authorities say not only was soraida's name and number sted, he would soon list her daughter's name, too. At that moment, I wanted to kill him. Reporter: At all hours of the day and night, strangers now showing up at their front door. Your daughter would be home? Yeah. Reporter: When these men would show up at the house. Yes. Soliciting sex, correct. My mom didn't want me to know. Reporter: Soraida's teenaged daughter, pam, was about to learn what her mother was trying to protect her from while getting ready for school in the morning. Men, perfect strangers, showing up. It's like seven something, six, I'm getting ready. And I'm like, "mom, someone's knocking on the door." My mom was like, "do not ever answer the door anymore. I don't want you to look through a hole or anything." Reporter: And just like her mother, pam's list of friends would not be safe either. He started texting your friends, pretending he was your mother. Yes, he did. That's what he did. Reporter: And everyone at school started to hear? Yeah, everyone thought my mom was a porn star. I think that was the tipping point. Reporter: Arlington county detective angela comer was the lead investigator. That's when we knew he was willing to go to great lengths to continue to terrorize this family. He came to my apartment with a knife. And slashed all my tires. Reporter: She filed for restraining orders and got them. They actually thought he was going to kill me. We were convinced she was in danger. He just wouldn't stop. Reporter: And on one evening this past november, just after nightfall, authorities say, instead of flying to d.C., bruce stimon drove this time, all the way from his smalltown new hampshire home, to soraida's apartment. I was just getting in my door -- Reporter: And he was waiting in the parking lot. He began slashing her tires. This time, police were waiting. He was caught in the act, and he was arrested that night. Reporter: Arrested. Bruce stimon would plead guilty to identity theft, extortion and stalking.
