Joshua Corbett, the man convicted of stalking Sandra Bullock in 2014, died of a “self-inflicted wound” early Wednesday after a five-hour standoff with members of the LAPD’s “fugitive warrant team.” ABC 7 reports “no gunshots were fired” by either party.

Corbett was sentenced to five years probation (!!!??) after breaking into Bullock’s LA home in 2014. She was there at the time, and called 911 after locking herself in a closet. (You can listen to the tape here, but I don’t necessarily recommend it.) He once wrote her a letter that read, in part:

“I love you and Louie (sic) and only want to be part of your lifes (sic). I saw you come home after the AFI gala and only wished I was at the entrance to your heart when you came home...Always and forever, Love, your husband.”

I don’t want to out myself on this forum, but my late father, a relatively well-known author, had a stalker back in the 1980s and early 1990s. My school had a photograph of her in the office; when I was in second grade, she had arrived at school and tried to take me home. Once, when my mom and I were visiting my grandmother, she showed up at our house and began throwing apples and oranges in the lake to “feed the fish.” She also registered for china patterns in my father’s name for their “wedding.”

My parents, to their credit, did not freak out and force me to meet the world with anxiety. However, this woman’s shadow—and the potential of harm to me—hung like a dark cloud over my childhood.
