NEW YORK: STALKERS WEAPONIZE TECHNOLOGY
Domestic violence incidents — including murders — often begin with abusers stalking their victims.
Law enforcement officials say harassers are increasingly using technology to get at their victims — tracking their every move. Smart home devices, even home security devices, can be weaponized to "cyberstalk," they say.
Ferial Nijem says she was abused by her ex for years.
"My abuser was able to utilize our home technology to stalk and harass me even from thousands of miles away," she said.
