Sonya Deville was able to thankfully escape with her life from a situation that was incredibly dangerous. A man named Philip Thomas II was stalking her online for years, and he executed a kidnapping attempt that took him eight months to plan.
Deville’s case is being used to spotlight the importance of keeping residences belonging famous individuals under wraps. You never know who could use that information to do awful things.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that there is currently talk on “both sides of the aisle in the Florida legislature” to bring a new bill to the floor that stems from Sonya Deville’s situation. This new bill would allow celebrities to list their homes confidentially.
The idea is that major sport pro athletes, wrestlers who appear on television and actors and actresses from SAG cards would be able to get their home addresses made confidential within the state
If this bill becomes a law them it could help stop future incidents like Sonya Deville’s case from happening. If her stalker was unable to so easily find out where she lived then he never would have been able to invade her home as he was able to do.
