ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Miriam Carey, the DC shooting victim, thought President Obama was her stalker, so claims a law enforcement source. Miriam Carey, the Stamford, CT 34 year old dental hygienist is being portrayed as one person by investigators handling the DC shooting case and a different person by her friends and family. Her mother does admit that Miriam had trouble in the last year following the birth of her child and was hospitalized with mental illness in recent months. But did Miriam Carey think Obama was her stalker, and did Miriam Carey lead a double life?
Two pictures of Miriam Carey are surfacing today. The first is a woman who appeared to have everything. Her former employer tells news that she was highly successful, licensed in two states. Her friends say that, in addition to a luxury sports car and annual income of over one hundred thousand dollars, Miriam Carey owned a condo. Her family claims they spoke to her just days ago. Many were shocked that she was even in DC. Other friends report that they want on vacation with Miriam just recently and that she was her normal self.
Dr. Steven Oken, told ABC News. “It’s the furthest thing from anything I would think she would do, especially with her child in the car. I am floored that it would be her.”
Moreover, longtime friends and family say that Miriam Carey had no history of violence. She had no longstanding history of mental illness before the birth of her one year old child. She grew up in Brooklyn and worked in Stamford.
But a different picture is being painted by DC police. As reported previously on LALATE, Congressional leaders were debriefed about purported “evidence” just minutes after Miriam Carey’s death that seemed questionable at the time. Several Congressional leaders told news that they were told Carey had a longstanding history of mental illness. So where did that false evidence come from? Others claim that they were told Carey tried to gain access to the White House. That too remains in dispute.
And now, today, another report, stemming from a DC Police officer, claims that Miriam Carey thought Barack Obama was her stalker. “The woman who led authorities on a chase from the White House to the Capitol before she was killed by police may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her, law enforcement sources told NBC News.” But her mom told news that her daughter was “happy” and a “non-political person.”
So why was Carey in DC? Even her family is still unsure. “That’s impossible,” Amy Carey tells Washington Post that her sister “works, she holds a job. She wouldn’t be in D.C. She was just in Connecticut two days ago, I spoke to her…I don’t know what’s happening. I can’t answer anymore.”
