CRESTVIEW – A 27-year-old man who was apparently angered after a female coworker denied his advances created a fictitious social media account to cyberstalk her.
The woman told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies that it was shortly after she turned down the coworker that she started getting “perverted messages” from a “Justin Fory.”
She said she had never seen the man who was featured on the profile page.
The messages were sexual in nature and included video chats of him masturbating. The man also asked her about her underwear, and whether she wore thongs, according to the man’s OCSO arrest report.
She said she began to feel scared after the man messaged her and said, “You know who I am” and “I will come up behind you and kiss you.”
Investigators interviewed her spurned coworker who said he had met Fory and spoken with him in person several times. He also said he engaged in group sex with Fory, the report said.
The suspect also admitted to making fake social media pages in the past.
Another woman told deputies that after dating the suspect she began getting Facebook messages from Fory, who asked her if she was a “thong girl.”
The second woman told deputies that the suspect had two cell phones and another device described as a handheld iPad, which he kept close by.
Investigators found numerous people who had interacted with Fory on social media, but none who had met him.
They obtained a search warrant for Fory’s Facebook page and found it belonged to the coworker. They also found he’d had previous arrests for stalking and harassing communication in another state.
He was charged with cyberstalking, which is a misdemeanor, for the most recent transgression.
