Classmates of Isaiah Glaze, the 21-year-old St. Mary’s College student and suspect in a double-shooting that left Moraga in a state of shock Sunday, said Glaze had been stalking his victim, also an SMC student, for months after a failed on-campus relationship.
Students forwarded social media posts posted by friends of the victim as well as by Glaze himself, who majored in sports management at St. Mary’s, as evidence of the potentially hostile nature of the relationship, and suggesting as far back as last October that violence might result if no intervention was made.
One post describes Glaze’s purported multiple efforts to re-contact the woman who had ended their relationship, saying the pattern of harassment “had been going on for a year and Saint Mary’s refuses to protect us.”
The poster goes on to say that after multiple attempts to locate the woman and confront her, Glaze eventually succeeded.
“…now Isaiah not only knows where we live again, but his dad comes onto campus too to try and intimidate us…”
Reports that Glaze’s father was at the scene of last night’s shooting incident could not be immediately confirmed.
Other posts include one purportedly from Glaze himself, posted under his screen name, in which some threats, epithets, and a reference to snitching are made. The post ends with: “… do me a favor have this be your last semester…”
Posters alluded that Glaze was being “protected” by Saint Mary’s, Public Safety, and Moraga Police, who were aware of the incidents leading up to Sunday’s incident. Why that would be the case, if so, was not disclosed.
