According to prosecutors, Joshua James Corbett — who kept a diary on Sandra — scaled the fence that surrounded Sandra’s West Los Angeles home around 1 a.m. while the actress was asleep inside. When Sandra came face-to-face with him in her hallway, she ran back into her bedroom and locked the door, after which he screamed “Sandy, I’m sorry. Please don’t press charges,” according to TMZ.
While he was on the premises, James was carrying a number of notes and magazine cut-outs — one of the notes read, “I will forever be thinking of you and Louie, my son, as you are my wife by law, the law of God and you belong to me and me to you,” TMZ has reported. So scary!
The Los Angeles police responded to a “hot prowler” call at 6:30 a.m. when they found the suspect outside Sandra’s home. After the man was booked, he was identified as 33-year-old Joshua James Corbett.
Little is known about Joshua, but CNN confirmed through FAA records that he had a private pilots license.
