A disturbed adolescent boy a young female teacher and a fifteen-year fixation that ultimately led to a horrific and deadly abduction.
In May of 1980 Mary Stauffer and her eight-year-old daughter Beth thought they were preparing for an international mission trip. Ming Sen Shiue Mary's high-school algebra student from 1965 had other plans. Stalking Mary is the true account of the kidnapping of Mary and Beth Stauffer the thoughtless murder of a young boy named Jason Wilkman and the psychosexual ploys of a dangerously deranged Shiue. Using court documents video and audio transcriptions personal interviews and thousands of pages from Shiue's own sexual fantasy scripts Eileen Biernat paints a harrowing picture of two families caught in the grip of a nightmare.
After three decades in prison Shiue is scheduled for release on July 7 2010--thirty years to the day that Mary and Beth still chained together escaped from Shiue's home where they'd been held captive for seven weeks.
