The contents of a storage locker that belonged to Robert Dewey Hoskins, Madonna’s infamous stalker, were revealed this weekend, and much of it was creepy. The storage unit contents included, according to TMZ, a large amount of Madonna memorabilia, “condoms, women’s jewelry, box cutters, scissors, a bible and a super creepy mask.”
In April 1995, Hoskins scaled a wall at Madonna’s L.A. home and headed across the property toward her living quarters. Madonna’s bodyguard scared him away, but Hoskins returned the next day, threatened to kill Madonna and her personal assistant, and left sinister notes for the singer. Hoskins was arrested in May 1995 and charged with stalking and making threats against Madonna, as well as threatening and assaulting her bodyguard. Seven weeks after the first incident, he again scaled the wall at Madonna’s home and was confronted by a bodyguard. Madonna famously didn’t appear at court when she was called despite being a material witness, until the judge threatened to take her into custody. Hoskins served a 10-year sentence, followed by lock-down in a psychiatric facility.
More recently, Hoskins escaped the psychiatric facility but was recaptured by LAPD officers. He also made violent threats against Halle Berry.
A bidder at a storage auction in Los Angeles paid $1,900 for the contents and the storage unit and had no idea what was inside. As he started to go through the contents, however, he recognized a name on some pill bottles and paperwork within the unit. He immediately notified a private investigation company, which informed the LAPD. The police have yet to investigate the contents of the unit.
