Real-world case: The Shaeffer Murder

In 1986, the television show My Sister Sam introduced the public to an up-and-coming young actress named Rebecca Shaeffer. Though relatively unknown before landing the role, the success of the show seemed certain to launch Rebecca into a promising career as a television star. Her ambitions, however, were cut short when on July 18, 1989, Robert John Bardo showed up at the front door of Rebecca’s home and shot her. He’d been stalking the young actress. After failing to get any information from Rebecca’s agent, he paid a private investigator $250 for her address. Unfortunately, it was that simple.

The ease at which anyone can obtain a private address is staggering. In California, the local DMV office will provide a private home address for only one dollar! All that is required is a short form with the requestor’s name, the subject’s name, and a reason for requesting the information.

The next section delves deeper into the issues surrounding data disclosure.
