Crazed stalker

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - True Crime -

An­gela Jay was pleased when she matched with Paul Lam­bert on Tin­der. He was hand­some, had a sta­ble job in fi­nance and seemed “charm­ing and at­ten­tive” when they met.

How­ever, just weeks later, Lam­bert started to show his true colours and bom­barded the 29-year-old doc­tor with texts and phone calls.

Con­cerned, An­gela called it quits, but Lam­bert re­fused to take no for an an­swer. The 36-year-old ha­rassed and threat­ened her for weeks, de­mand­ing she take him back.

Then on Novem­ber 3, 2016, Lam­bert broke in to An­gela’s Port Mac­quarie home and, in a fren­zied rage, stabbed her 11 times be­fore dous­ing her in petrol.

“I looked down at my legs and saw stab wounds and thought ‘My God, he’s go­ing to kill me, I’m go­ing to bleed to death,’” says An­gela, who last month re­leased con­fronting pho­tos of her legs taken days af­ter the at­tack. “I put pres­sure on my leg us­ing my hand, all the time think­ing ‘I need to get out of here.’ ”

An­gela fled to a nearby house, where she guided her neigh­bour through treat­ment. Lam­bert was shot dead by po­lice when he lunged at them with a knife.

An­gela is now rais­ing money for White Rib­bon Aus­tralia by hik­ing the Kokoda Track. To do­nate: trek 4 re­spec­tkokoda. ev­ery­day­hero.com/au/ange-vs-kokoda
