Eric Rohan Johnson Ava Majury Stalker
Eric Rohan Johnson became dangerously obsessed with Ava Majury, 15, who is a rising social media star with more than 1.2 million followers on TikTok and more than 300,000 Instagram followers. The TikToker does videos that regularly get well over 100,000 views, she lip syncs and dances to pop songs.
Eric allegedly sent Ava hundreds of messages on social media and even paid her classmates for information about the TikToker, according to her family. Her parents say that they allowed their daughter to sell Johnson two selfies for $300. It was after that that he started asking her for explicit photos, the family said. She defended it on Friday, telling GMA she did it to stop him from contacting her friends. I had an opportunity to actually text this person and said ‘Hey, she’s a minor and you need to not contact her anymore,’ and we notified the authorities,” her dad in the interview to NBC said.
Johnson was however not deterred, he arrived at their doorstep with a gun and shot through the front door in Naples on July 10, 2021. With him also were cell phones with hundreds of photos of her on them.
He was then shot dead by Ava’s dad Rob who said on Friday he did what he had to do to protect his family. As to how Eric found her address remains unclear. Ava in the interview said there is a boy at her school who was following her in December 2021, and who had communicated with Eric Justin over text. Police at the time described it as a home invasion. They did not name any of the parties involved.
Ava makes up to $1,700 per video across her three TikTok accounts and is currently being homeschooled in fear of stalkers.
