Fatal Attraction In A Confined Space: Woman Is Rescued In California After Trying To Climb Into Man’s Home Through His Chimney

California-Woman-Genoveva-Nunez-Figueroa-Meets-Man-Online-and-Gets-Stuck-in-Chimney-to-See-Him-pic-620x348Just in case you were wondering of the fatal attraction of some Internet relationships, you might want to ponder Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa. Nunez-Figueroa was pulled out of the chimney of a man in Thousand Oaks, California. She was trying to get into the home of a man who said met on online and went on a few dates before he broke it off. She was not ready to end the relationship apparently. She was previously spotted on the roof of the man but ran off. This time she was found stuck in the chimney in the ultimate “why don’t you love me?” scene.

California-Woman-Genoveva-Nunez-Figueroa-Meets-Man-Online-and-Gets-Stuck-in-Chimney-to-See-HimNeighbors reported that they heard a woman crying around 5:45 am. The man was not at home at the time. The rescue squad had to break down the top of the chimney to eventually pull her out of the small space. The rescue team eventually lubricated Nunez-Figueroa with dish soap to hoist her out. It must have been a terrifying time.

She has now been charged with illegal entry and providing false information to a peace officer.

Obviously, the defense counsel is likely to explore an insanity defense and the facts could not be better suited to such a defense — though insanity defenses are more difficult than people who assume.

  1. “Who’s going to pay for the chimney? Do they have a psycho stalker clause in homeowners insurance?”

    He is likely covered under his home owners policy for the same thing as if a burglar were to break in and do damage to the property in the course of a robbery.

    A restraining order might be a good idea too πŸ™‚

  2. Jacquelyn Kotarac, a 49-year-old physician from Bakersfield, California did an analogous act in the past for a similar reason.

  3. I know TO very well, as I used to live there. Nice town.

    Unstable women can indeed become dangerous stalkers. It can easily become a case of if she couldn’t have him, she would ruin his life or try to harm him.

    Even though her situation was self inflicted, I do feel sorry for her being trapped in a chimney. Cannot imagine how horrible that must have been. She could have easily suffocated and died. And TO doesn’t get very cold. People often don’t use their gas fireplaces for years. He wouldn’t have known she was there until she smelled.

    Awful. Who’s going to pay for the chimney? Do they have a psycho stalker clause in homeowners insurance?

  4. I am not sure if there is a standard ‘bunny boiler’ defense you can use in cases like these. Stalking used to be something that we used to see as acceptable pre-dating behavior in movies, now it is all illegal. The whole dating scene has changed.

  5. Annie – Eatha Kitt can come down my chimney any night. πŸ˜‰ However, in Phoenix we are not big on fireplaces and chimneys.

  6. People are idiots. They believe everything they see in the cartoons. Unless it is a medieval mansion, there is no way anyone can go down a chimney. Not even Houdini could get past the damper.

  7. It puts me in mind of that vampy Christmas song, “Santa Baby”, sung by Eartha Kitt.

  8. Not insane. She made a rational attempt to enter the house without leaving signs of forced entry. If she had not got stuck, he might be dead.

  9. Only Saint Nicholas can enter a home like that. Everyone else should stop trying. πŸ˜‰
