PORTLAND A Missouri man has been charged in U.S. District Court with interstate stalking.
Benjamin Lee, 52, threatened to kill his estranged wife and mount her head on the wall, according to an FBI affidavit.
He made his first appearance Wednesday in federal court in Portland.
U.S. Magistrate Judge John H. Rich III ordered that Lee be held without bail until a detention hearing can be held Monday.
Lee originally was arrested in September and charged in state court with domestic violence stalking and having a loaded firearm in a vehicle after his wife reported that he was driving by the house where she was staying in southern Maine. She told a dispatcher that she thought her husband had a gun, the affidavit said.
A short time later, Lee was stopped by Maine State Police and a York County sheriffs deputy, according to the affidavit. Lee allowed them to search his trunk and they found five firearms (and over 200 rounds of assorted ammunition matching the caliber of the firearms), a machete, a bayonet, a folding knife, handcuffs, duct tape, packing tape, rubber gloves, camouflage face paint, a map of Maine with [a Maine town] circled in pen, a roll of plastic trash bags and a roll of plastic sheeting.

We need duct tape control.
We need duct tape control.
I was wondering what my ex wife was up to
I found his soulmate:
“threatened to kill his estranged wife and mount her head on the wall,”
Hmmn - there was the one about a titled Englishman showing a girl reporter his trophy room. Said he, “I shot that lion in Namibia - full charge at 25 yards. That rhino was shot charging me and I dropped him at 12 yards.
The young presstitute asked about the mounted head of a middle aged female and was told: “That was my last wife - I shot her charging out of control at Harrod’s”.
Which interstate did he stalk ? I-40 is kinda hot.
He could have paper mache her head to the wall.
One disgruntled ex-wife and all your guns and all your ammo, AND your right to keep and bear arms... UP IN SMOKE, BABY!
Plus, the media will make you out to be some kind of unstable gun nut who was sitting on a veritable arsenal of guns and ammo — even if you didn’t have enough ammo for two hours at the range.
Not saying that that’s what happened here, but it’s a definite possibility.
They’re made for each other. I wonder if her grammar is as bad as his?
mount her head on the wall,
The guy’s into extreme taxidermy, probably wanted his own reality show.
I don’t know how many years in prison this guy will eventually serve (according to the article he’s looking at 5 years, but he could get less), but I get the feeling that when he finally gets out of prison, he’s going right back to stalking her. Probably see this through and try to kill her.
Any news about what his wife did to cause such a reaction.
Fortunate they caught this wacko before he killed her. She is in Maine, and he drives all the way from Missouri and is driving by the place over and over? What a total wackjob.
"... and look at the rack on her! What a great job the taxidermist did mounting her!"
“The young presstitute asked about the mounted head of a middle aged female and was told: That was my last wife - I shot her charging out of control at Harrods.
“... and look at the rack on her! What a great job the taxidermist did mounting her!””
Must have been a Muslim who mounted her, assuming she was delivered to his business within the Sharia Law allowed time for post death sex of six hours or less.
