Prosecuting attorney discusses case against woman accused of stalking Indiana family

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — What started as a friend request on Facebook for an Indiana teen spiraled into a series of death threats against her, her family, Indiana universities and even a business in Fishers. Now a 21-year-old in North Carolina is charged with the crime.

Court documents show it started with a meeting on Facebook in 2012 between the then 13-year-old Indiana girl and Shamonique Ferguson. It quickly turned into more. Investigators said a dispute online turned into stalking and harassment that spanned four years, even after the teen changed her phone number and blocked her online. Things escalated further in 2016.
