Woman 70 nabbed for stalking padre 93

70-year-old Florida woman, Dorothy Jones Scalise, was arrested last week for stalking 93-year-old Father Edward Konopka near Fort Lauderdale.

The arrest came after Father Konopka, 93, of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Coral Springs, Fla. said he has been the victim of a stalker, 70-year-old Dorothy Jones Scalise, Fox7News reports.

Father Konopka said, Scalise has been known to pester several other Catholic priests around the area and she frequently gets tossed out of Catholic churches.

“She would go to the organ and take over the organ, or she would sit in the second or fourth pew and make monkey faces,” Konopka said.

The retired priest said he fears the 70-year-old woman. “She’s getting ready for something to end this thing,” Konopka said. “She’s been in every parish on University and kicked out of the parish. They carry her out like a sack of potatoes. Between us, she’s out to do something, this is the end.”

Bond court Judge John Hurley ordered a psychological evaluation of Scalise.
