The former Chicago teacher who was charged with threatening Donald Trump's youngest son, Barron Trumpallegedly stalked him, according to a recent report. 

Tracy Fiorenza, a 41-year-old ex-social studies teacher, purportedly traveled to West Palm Beach with the intention of inquiring about Barron's presence at the esteemed Oxbridge Academy. A security official, sensing a potential threat to a "notable student," quickly informed law enforcement, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Upon questioning, Fiorenza claimed her visit was to confirm Barron's enrollment by speaking to the school's principal, according to the newspaper. 

However, the teacher's past interactions with the academy were reportedly far from ordinary. She had previously made unsettling calls to the school, alleging they had overlooked certain procedures.

By May, Fiorenza's actions escalated, the Chicago Tribune noted.  She sent a threatening email to the school's principal, vowing to harm both Donald and Barron Trump. Another email in June echoed her threats. The U.S. Secret Service then intervened, leading to Fiorenza admitting to sending the emails from her home in Plainfield, Illinois.

Further investigations revealed Fiorenza's attempts since 2018 to reach out to White House staff during Trump's presidency. Her Facebook profile displayed a series of posts filled with conspiracy theories and aggressive imagery directed at the former president.

During a recent court appearance, federal prosecutor Adam Rosenbloom highlighted the violent nature of Fiorenza's threats, hinting at potential mental health issues.

Despite her attorney's arguments that she wasn't a genuine threat, a federal judge ordered Fiorenza's continued detention in Illinois, pending her transfer to Florida.

Currently, Fiorenza is charged with transmitting interstate threats to harm or kill, a crime carrying a potential five-year prison term.
