Brandon Maulding beaten to death

On August 1, 2015 targeted individual Brandon Maulding from Battle Ground, Columbia, was beaten to death by gang stalker Stephen Reichow.

This is what probably happened. Gang stalkers Reichow and Anne Tanninen had a cunning plan. First they made Maulding drunk. Then they found a plausible reason to lure him to a storage space that she rented. They had placed a baseball bat there so that he would find it. He played with it for a while. Then a third gang stalker made a harassing phone call to Maulding. Then Tanninen invented a story about being a targeted individual, suggesting that Reichow was one of her stalkers. Reichow ran off. Tanninen brought Maulding to Reichow and left so there would be no witness. Reichow took the baseball bat from Maulding and beat him unconscious. When he saw that Maulding wasn’t dead, he tried to strangle him. This was witnessed by a woman. So it doesn’t look like self-defense. Later Maulding died in the hospital.

On April 17, 2017 Reichow was convicted for murder. The sentencing is planned for May 2.
