According to the reports, there are more than 100 emails and the tweets with threatening the things “like I am very close to you. I am going to kill you.”
The tweets were deleted, and it’s a surprise that how the things directed to Hawking since he doesn’t have the account on the Twitter. Police said that the woman was not identified by the name and, had been following Hawking. They also mentioned that she is suffering from the mental problems.
The hotel in Tenerife, where the woman found is arrested on Wednesday, and she is having the detailed tracings of the Hawking’s whereabouts from her possession and the notes on both his home and his office.
