In the most recent twist in the dramatic stalking saga involving Florida TikTok sensation Ava Majury, a Collier County judge on Monday dismissed the case she brought against a schoolmate.
“About a year ago today, I was a normal 15-year-old girl living my life, playing soccer, going to high school, and spreading positivity all over social media,” Majury told reporters afterward. “Now I’m afraid to even leave my house.”
The hearing lasted for about an hour and a half, during which Majury testified against her unnamed high school classmate, Fox News reported.
“I was terrified,” she explained during her testimony on Monday. “I took myself out of many things that I love…I took myself out of soccer when we were headed to state mid-season.”
She alleges that whenever she was at school during the Fall 2021 semester, the defendant was always somewhere close by–and this in a school numbering over 2,300 students. In her testimony, Majury accused the teen boy of intimidating and following her at Gulf Coast High School in Naples, where she was a student at the time. Her parents have since pulled her out of school, Fox News noted.
The complaint against the boy was filed earlier this year by Ava’s father, Rob Majury, who was involved in an earlier, and much more terrifying, stalking incident involving his daughter. The problems for the family actually started two years earlier, when Ava downloaded the notorious TikTok app during the pandemic lockdowns in 2020.
This was when she was only 13 years old.
Her following quickly burgeoned, and in short order, she was receiving adulation from over 1.2 million adoring fans–nearly three-quarters of them male, according to a New York Times article on Ava’s ordeal. Her TikTok videos often involved her lip-syncing and dancing to various trendy songs, which some people evidently found irresistible.
And such was unquestionably the case with one fan who went by the handle “EricJustin111.” His real name was Eric Rohan Justin, and he was an 18-year-old from Ellicott City, Md. After allegedly harassing Ava and her friends, and demanding “explicit” photos from her, Ava blocked Justin and refused to have any further contact with him.
Then, on July 10 of last year, Justin arrived at Majury’s home in Naples with a shotgun and blew the front door open.
Majury’s father–who happens to be a former New Jersey police officer–responded as fathers are wont to do, and shot and killed Justin.
This terrifying episode was, according to Majury’s courtroom testimony, only the beginning of her nightmare. Following the incident, she began to be harassed by her accused second stalker, whom she alleges had been in communication with Eric Rohan Justin.
For this reason, and despite blocking him, she reached out to the defendant for more information about Justin. This included photos he had of Snapchat conversations with Justin, in one of which a “grape emoji” was used to indicate Justin’s wish to “rape” Majury–the emoji allegedly being a way to avoid Snapchat’s detection algorithms.
The defendant’s attorney, however, explained that he was trying to help Majury, and had voluntarily sent her the information at her request. Furthermore, he contended, nothing in his client’s behavior as indicated in Majury’s testimony rose to the legal definition of stalking.
After deliberating for 10 minutes, the judge in the case was inclined to agree and denied Majury’s request for a personal protection order against the defendant, according to Fox News.
Majury was disappointed with the judge’s decision but didn’t regret her testimony.
“Although today didn’t go as we wanted, I’m glad I got my truth out and my story was told,” she told reporters.
