Ex-Bernardo groupie accused of stalking young boys http://www.thestar.com/news/article...o-groupie-accused-of-stalking-young-boys?bn=1 There was a time when Lori Kooger was head over heels in love with Paul Bernardo. He was her celebrity idol. These days, the now 44-year-old widowed mother of three is herself accused of being a sexual predator and stalker of underage boys. From courthouse groupie to jailhouse custody, awaiting trial on charges of sexual interference, sexual assault and invitation to sexual touching involving two youths, one of whom is only 12. Koogers crush on the notorious schoolgirl killer brought her 15 minutes of fame in the mid-90s, her obsession with the then-charged but not yet convicted rapist and murderer garnering wide media attention, fame-by-proxy, with stories in local newspapers, a profile in Chatelaine magazine and an appearance on the American tabloid TV show, A Current Affair. Unemployed and engaged to the much older man she would ultimately marry he was killed in an industrial workplace accident in 2007 Kooger was Lori Brown back then, a constant googly-eyed presence at Bernardos court appearances in St. Catharines and later Toronto. On one occasion, when Bernardo appeared to nod and smile at her from the defendants box, Kooger was giddy with pleasure. Do you think Paul knows me now? she asked a reporter. I want him to know who I am. I want him to know I exist.
