Witnesses described the FBI imposter as dressed in blue jeans, light colored sweater and an olive down coat. He also had a receding hairline, stood about 5feet 9 inches, weighed about 160 pounds, and appeared to be Asian American with a definite American accent.
The stalker asked the doorman of the actress if she lives there and with whom, her
whereabouts and other very personal questions. The doorman asked for a business card. The refused and eventually exited the building after several minutes of trying to intimidate the doorman out of more information. He was also carrying a folder with several photos of Sallie Toussaint which appeared to be printed from the internet. A male has been calling the front desk of the young lady’s building several times a day and asking for her apartment number ever since this bizarre visit from this stalker. It appears to be the same male in question. The actress and former Miss USA and her family do not recognize this man and need your help. Federal and State charges have been filed against this man. He is being charged with impersonating a Federal Agent, Aggravated Harassment and Trespassing. If anyone recognizes and has any information on the man shown in this video, please contact 1-800-577-TIPS.

This year is the tenth anniversary of an Idaho Falls woman making history. Brandi Sherwood, a graduate of Idaho Falls High School, gained national prominence in 1997 when she was crowned Miss USA. Eight years prior to that, in 1989, she was crowned Miss Teen USA. She is the only woman ever to hold both titles. Brandi, who is currently a model and actress in Los Angeles, says the best part of her fame is being able to have a voice in what she believes in.
Brandi Sherwood, Miss USA 1997: “Being that I don’t drink, don’t smoke or do drugs, both when I was Miss Teen USA and Miss USA, I spoke on behalf of the DARE organization. I’ve gone to different schools in different places, all age groups, little kids up to kids in high school.”
‘The Departed’ wins best picture – Yahoo! News: “‘Little Miss Sunshine’ also won the original screenplay Oscar for first-time screenwriter Michael Arndt.
The film follows a ghastly but hilarious road trip by an emotionally messed-up family rushing to get their darling girl (10-year-old supporting-actress nominee Abigail Breslin) to her beauty pageant.
‘When I was a kid, my family drove 600 miles in a VW bus with a broken clutch,’ Arndt said, describing a road trip that mirrored the one in the film. ‘It ended up being one of the funnest things we did together.'”
‘The Departed’ wins best picture – Yahoo! News: “Arkin played a foul-mouthed grandpa with a taste for heroin ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’ a low-budget film that came out of the independent world to become a commercial hit and major awards player.
‘More than anything, I’m deeply moved by the open-hearted appreciation our small film has received, which in these fragmented times speaks so openly of the possibility of innocence, growth and connection,’ said Arkin.”
Yesterday, I was one of the three judges for Miss Illinois Galaxy (which included Miss, Teen and Mrs. divisions) and it was a really difficult job! All the delegates were fantastic! (Not to mention 12 inches of snow fell on the ground making the drive back rather–adventurous.)
Our new Miss Teen Illinois Galaxy is Jenna Chaney.
Our new Miss Illinois Galaxy is Stephanie Daughenbaugh.
Our new Mrs. Illinois Galaxy is Michelle Lose.
Special thanks to director Britt Harrison and all the organizers of the event for making the judging experience, while difficult, a lot of fun!
