    Police seek man who threatened to kill Madonna - escaped from mental hospital

    Robert Hoskins, Who Was Convicted Of Threatening To Kill Madonna, Sought By Police After Escaping Mental Hospital
    LOS ANGELES -- Police are asking for the public's help in locating a man who was convicted of threatening to kill Madonna and walked away from a Los Angeles-area mental hospital last week.

    Los Angeles police say Robert Dewey Hoskins left the state hospital Friday. He had been committed there last year.

    Hoskins, 54, is "highly psychotic" and can be extremely violent and should not be approached by members of the public.

    This is a VERY dangerous man. He needs to be locked up tight for the rest of his life.

    (Hoskins) is currently in a locked-down criminal psychiatric facility, having been evaluated as still a great danger to the community. When he was interviewed by a prison psychologist approximately three years ago, Hoskins told him that the first thing that he was going to do upon his release was to purchase a gun and start "shooting at the stars". He also told the psychologist that he knew that when he attacked Basil Stephens, that Stephens was really "Madonna in male form" and that Madonna's spirit could leave her body and become someone else. Imagine what would happen should Hoskins finally be released and carries out his plan to obtain a gun. In his mind, anyone including a small child, could be Madonna, and Hoskins is patiently waiting to take his revenge.
