USA: Woman Arrested For Calling Her Ex-Boyfriend 77 000 Times in a Week


Albuquerque| A New Mexico woman was finally arrested this morning by officers of the Albuquerque Police Department in what could be the most extreme case of stalking ever recorded in the history of the country. The 28-year old woman allegedly not only called her ex-lover a formidable 77 639 times in a week, but also sent him 1937 emails, 41 229 text messages, 217 sung messages and 647 letters in the same period.

Linda Murphy, who has an history of obsessive compulsive behavior, would have badly taken her breakup with William Ryans, with whom she had had a relationship for three weeks. She is accused of using up to three phones at once to call him, 24 hours a day,  on his cell phone, home number and at work. The woman would have ingested large quantities of energy drinks and amphetamines to remain awake and would have gone sleepless for a week, calling her ex nonstop.

“My client is profoundly relieved that Ms. Murphy is finally behind bars” stated the plaintiff’s lawyer, J.D. James Kilroy. “He hasn’t been able to sleep, work or enjoy life in any way, for more than a week. He was having a hard time thinking clearly and was nearing depression, it was about time the harassment ceased. Now all we want is for Ms. Murphy to get the medical help she needs, and for the law to keep her away from my client.”

The accused is expected to appear in the state court tomorrow in Albuquerque, and most experts presume that the judge will order a psychological evaluation of the woman to determine if she is capable of standing trial.

  1. `Did they at least let her make 1 phone call when they arrested her.

  2. So let me guess, its his fault

    • Literally no one is saying that, here or anywhere. Everyone agrees her behavior is scary and unreasonable. Why don’t you take your persecution complex over to /r/MensRights and cry more with the rest of the beta losers?

    • Lauren, if you actually read the comments there were a few people who did blame this on him. They even went as far as to call him an idiot. Obviously YOU are the one with the complex!

      I couldn’t agree more!

      When you say “now,” do you mean “always,” because this isn’t some sudden change in our system. They’ve followed this behavior since probably before you were born.

    • You do realize this isn’t a real story, right?

  5. This is so demonstrably not “what could be the most extreme case of stalking ever recorded in the history of the country.”
    Dude is badly harassed and rightly shook-up, frightened and lacking in sleep, and clearly needed her to be forcibly prevented from doing the things she was doing, which were: “not only called her ex-lover a formidable 77 639 times in a week, but also sent him 1937 emails, 41 229 text messages, 217 sung messages and 647 letters in the same period.”
    Nowhere in the article) is she claimed to have approached him or his family or his friends. She wasn’t seen by these people, didn’t physically harm anyone. This is not the most extreme case of stalking in the history of the USA or any other country. Crazy lady needs intervention.
    Lots and lots and lots of women who are stalked by their exes end up dead. THAT is extreme stalking.

    • Kristen, that’s not extreme stalking, that’s murder. Which is sometimes the end result of stalking. This, is extreme stalking.

    • kristen, that’s the dumbest thing i’ve read all week. this is not a gender issue, and you sound like an idiot for defending this crazy bitch’s actions. “Lots and lots” of men who are stalked by their exes also end up dead.

      that is murder, not stalking.

    • I agree with you Kristen the MOST extreme cases are the ones that end in cold blood, rape, or even assaulted but this was pure madness. She has a problem with O.C.D o.k. so making her look like she is the bad person isn’t right. She my also have an self-esteem issue too. He should have called the police after the first day not a week later. SMH he is an idiot.

  6. Do you think I have a chance with her?

    • A chance to what? Get out alive?


    • Casey Cross | May 25, 2015 at 11:21 am |

      A chance bro the chance you would most likely have is the chance of a woman stalking you and maybe sneaking into your closet

  7. No man is worth all that trouble and attention.

  8. Man that lady’s must of been hooked on him & breaking a bad habbit in the mix! LoL
    Albuquerque Tweaker Capitol of the World!!

  9. shes hit the MENTAL BLOCK

  10. off with her head

    • Grace Bell | June 30, 2014 at 9:57 am |

      And why did he not change his phone number and make it private! Both people are loony.

    • Donn Clendenon | June 30, 2014 at 11:00 pm |

      She called his work and emailed. No one should be expected to just change their lives for someone. If he changed his number he would have to inform all his contacts, his work. Plus this happened in a week.

    • @Grace – Because she is crazy, he most change the phone number?

    • When I was being stalked and my harasser called me, even though I had threats of physical violence, it took 4 days for the phone company to change my number.

    • lmaoo. This comment made me chuckle.

    • Karen Barkwell | July 1, 2014 at 10:02 pm |

      The picture is of the same woman that crawled through the drive up window at McDonalds…..busy, busy, busy!!!!

    • Right because he can’t block her numbers or anything and block her email address. There’s easier solutions. I myself would have blocked her on my cell, left a VM saying to call my cell on my house phone and unplugged it then blocked her emails and gone to sleep. If she had come to the house, call 911 and watch her get dragged away.

    • I did the math. This story is physically impossible!

    • I don’t get it… Today getting rid of this kind of stalking is easy… Cellphones can block unwanted text/calls, Caller ID and modern house phones can make it easy to block calls, emails can be filtered and sent to spam.. It’s not like she showed up in person. This guy is just a big baby..

      I once ate 43,000 Hamburgers in one week.

    • One action every 5.1 seconds. Dedication, although I feel she needs help not throwing in jail.
