Man charged with cyberstalking his ex
A southeast Iowa man is facing a pair of felony charges in connection with his alleged activities involving his former girlfriend, who is currently a student at Truman State University in Kirksville.
Tevin Thomann, 22, of West Burlington, Iowa, is charged with aggravated stalking and attempted tampering with a witness in a felony prosecution. He will be held on $25,000 cash only bond once he arrives at the Adair County jail.
According to court papers, Thomann created more than 13 fake Facebook pages, making them appear to be associated with Truman Sate University. The fake pages included a picture of the victim at least partially nude. Police say Thomann also used the fake pages to "like" actual Truman Facebook pages, so they would be connected. A copy of the picture was also left in the mailbox of the victim's parents.
The letter and envelope were forged to make it appear as though they came from the Truman administration. The letter discussed how concerned the university was about the victim's actions and spreading of the picture. The envelope did not come through the mail.
Itâ??s also alleged that he told the victim that if she broke up with him, he would kill her or kill himself. Thomann is currently being held in the Des Moines County, Iowa jail. He had a court appearance Monday, but he has not yet waived extradition.
