Very early this morning, the Los Angeles Police Department announced that 54-year-old Robert Dewey Hoskins, a man who was convicted of stalking and threatening Madonna, has escaped from a mental hospital in
. The LAPD are describing the man as follows: Norwalk, CA
"…A very psychotic man when not taking his medication and has very violent tendencies."
Madonna testified during Hoskins' trial that she had nightmares about the homeless man from
after seeing him near her home in 1995. She said her bodyguard told her Hoskins claimed she was supposed to be his wife, and "if he couldn't have me, he was going to slice my throat from ear to ear." While Madonna was away from her home and in Oregon later that year, he scaled the perimeter wall there, jumped into her pool and was eventually shot twice by a security guard. Florida
Upon his release from prison, Hoskins was sent to a
hospital. He was eventually let go but was arrested again in July 2011 and sent to a different health facility in the Los Angeles-area community of California . Hoskins walked off undetected from that hospital last Friday and has not been seen since. Norwalk
