CBS Los Angeles is reporting that Robert Dewey Hoskins, 54, who earlier this month escaped (and was subsequently captured near) the Norwalk, Calif. mental hospital where he was being held, kept a Los Angeles area storage locker stocked with a collection of knives. Additionally, the space held photos of his pop-star obsession, hand-written rants, home videos, and a substantial collection of dolls.
"A lot of the stuff is normal, but what is strange to see all of the Madonna memorabilia," said Jerry Licardi, who bought the contents of the locker. "I didn't know actually until I got into the office to pay for the locker. That's when they told me that that until belongs to Madonna's stalker and that's when it hit me."
Speaking about a particularly disturbing item in the collection of childless Hoskins, a doll that was missing its head, Licardi said, "That, to say the least, bothered me because, is he focusing on something else now? To me that meant real danger and certainly I think a psychologist would be better at evaluating that, but it didn't look good to me."
Commenting on the situation, private investigator Sergio Robleto said, "We know that there are some bad thoughts and evil thoughts."
