On October 24, 2019, Shawn Christopher Marino arrived late to court carrying a large wooden staff adorned with satanic symbols, having been accused of communicating threats. I am the plaintiff in this case. The judge asked the man’s name, and he replied Lucifer Alistair Morningstar. Since that name was not on the docket, he clarified that his name is Shawn Marino, in the process of changing his name. None of this duplicity was surprising to me since he is the one who allegedly has been sending death threats to me, my family, and those connected to me on social media.
Threats ranged from blowing my kneecaps off with a .357 magnum signed by Clint Eastwood, shooting specific family members with a taser, to harassing anyone following me on Twitter, Instagram, etc. Sorry to any of you who were harassed by this jerk, but rest assured that you are in no physical danger, whatsoever. He’s 550lb, and can’t leave the house without taking public transit with his mom. A few people contacted me saying they were also getting threats, some of them had been for years, and that they were also scared of his sister and mother. He has no sister, girlfriend, wife, or brother. He’s a voice actor. It’s listed right at the top of his Facebook profile.
At the hearing, the DA asked if I was interested in doing arbitration instead of going to court, getting a restraining order and so forth, and I said no, I definitely want to prosecute. I can put up with or ignore his nonsense, personally… But this case is much bigger than just me. I’ve heard from women who have moved to a different state, changed their phone numbers, underaged girls who he had used their photos without their permission in explicitly sexual posts, and even pictures of babies with disturbing captions alluding to pedophilia and sex slavery. I just happen to be the only one in a position to go after him, since I know his identity, and was able to gather enough evidence to take to the Rowan County magistrate to file charges. The police get 10-20 calls a day about him, he posts his phone number on all of his social profiles, and they’re just sick of dealing with him.
So, the DA set another court date for 4 weeks later, so I can get them much, much more extensive evidence, including screenshots, voicemails, audio recordings, photos. I’m a media person. A digital scribe. A content creator. I have so much to filter through in the next month that it’s overwhelming.
As he walked toward the door after the proceedings, I asked the judge, “Is it ok if I wait here for a while while he leaves?” Shawn turned to me and said, “Yeah you’d better… I’ll EAT you!” To make sure everyone in the room heard, I repeated back, “You’ll eat me?”, and he said yes.
He was halfway out the door when he decided to go ahead and threaten my life right there in court. Sort of defeats the purpose of defending himself against my allegations of communicating threats. The judge told him to come on out this way, he said, where am I going? To jail.
I’m trying to gather the evidence for this case while currently homeless, living in my car. If you’re able to help at all, I’m running a campaign at https://gofund.me/helpfry or you can PayPal directly to my email address below. Much appreciated.
