Back in 2014, Actress Sandra Bullock (Miss Congeniality, Blind Side) had a stalker break into her house. She hid in her room closet, calling 911after seeing a male “wearing a dark sweatshirt and dark pants” walk past her bedroom towards the third floor stairs. He was arrested, and received probation, also being ordered to inpatient treatment at a mental health facility. Sandra got a retraining order for her and her children.
Police were able to get a search warrant for his home where they found a notebook in which he detailed how he would sexually assault Sandra. About 24 different rifles and handguns were also found in the house, with ammunition.
On Wednesday, Joshua James Corbett, the stalker, was found dead in his home after a 5 hour stand off with police. Reports says Corbett died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to E! News, the stand off was started when police tried to serve a warrant at the residence. This lead to Corbett barricading himself inside the house. It is unknown at this time why the warrant was being served.
