The doctor’s daughter suffered a “distorted and twisted” online stalking campaign by a stablehand
A doctor’s daughter broke down in tears over the “distorted and twisted” online stalking campaign waged by a stablehand she unwittingly approached, a court has heard.
Beaumont Bricka is accused of sending makeup artist Eve Taylor “appalling” messages from fake accounts urging her to kill herself as part of his plot to ruin her relationship with the innocent Tim Dobson.
Ms Taylor broke down in tears as she told Portsmouth Crown Court that Bricka’s stalking campaign had left her in “complete chaos”.
The 26-year-old used false names to send Ms Taylor – and himself – “disturbing” death threats in his “distorted” plan to frame her boyfriend with stalking so he could get closer to her.
Ms Taylor said she felt “incredibly guilty” that Bricka – known as Beau – appeared to be receiving death threats and felt “it was my fault”, prompting her to exchange messages with him on a daily basis.

Bricka’s mother Tonia, 63, came forward and claimed she was behind the stalking, but prosecutors claimed she wanted to take the blame
A court has heard that ‘quiet’ stable hand Bricka, whose work takes him to international show jumping events around the world, has been stalking Ms Taylor and nine others connected to her.
His alleged victims include Ms. Taylor’s father, Dr. Tim Taylor – who is the medical director of an NHS trust – her mother, a senior NHS nurse, and her friends and colleagues.
In the dock with him in court is his horse-owning mother, 63-year-old Tonia Bricka, who claims to be behind the stalking, but prosecutors say she is simply trying to shoulder the blame for her son.
Bricka, who lives with his mother in a £530,000 cottage in the village of Aldingbourne in the West Sussex countryside, met Ms Taylor in the stables by his home and ran his ‘twisted’ year-long campaign from 2019-2020.
He set up multiple fake accounts with maiden names on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and WhatsApp, set up at least 34 different phone numbers, six email addresses, and used three cell phones.
Using the accounts, he contacted Ms Taylor and her family and friends to falsely claim that her plumber boyfriend, Mr Dobson, had cheated on her.
Bricka is also accused of spreading lies about her, claiming she has STDs, running ads claiming she is an escort and branding her a “cheating witch”.
her father dr Taylor was even investigated by the Sussex NHS Trust when Bricka made a false complaint that he had inappropriately sent an 11-year-old girl, it was heard.

Mr Dobson and Ms Taylor eventually split over Bricka’s alleged conspiracy – and the former was arrested and “considered suicide”.
“Scary” photos of suicides, nooses and bloodied knives were sent to Ms Taylor and Bricka by the stalker, and they were encouraged to kill themselves, leading them to believe he was a “victim” too.
Testifying in court, Ms Taylor said: “I was scared. I was devastated, a complete mess. I felt really disturbed and stressed and guilty… It was awful, the news made me dirty.
“I didn’t really talk about Beau with my friends, maybe he was approaching my mother on general horse talk.
“I was really worried, it felt ominous and felt directed at Beau, who I was worried about at the time. We definitely grew closer when this happened as he also received messages.
“We’ve probably been in touch about the case fairly regularly, almost daily. He was just a friend, I felt incredibly guilty and worried that he was getting death threats and it was my fault.
The couple exchanged 6,234 messages and Ms Taylor suspected Mr Dobson was behind the “vendetta”.
The court heard Bricka claim Mr Dobson was behind it. Bricka wrote to Ms Taylor, saying: “I asked you for a walk once and he must have seen it… I sent a message saying, ‘Thanks for really enjoying it.’
Ms Taylor revealed she had stopped going out and exercising, despite running and doing yoga extensively previously. She also stopped signing because the stress made her lose her voice. The doctors said she had a muscle spasm.

“I saw a therapist, it would have been 2020. Sometimes weekly, twice when I was really stressed,” she added. “It still affects me every day.”
Julie Taylor, Ms Taylor’s mother, told the court when the stalker began texting her impersonating a young girl about fraudulent claims that she had been “taken”.
However, when the stalking targeted her daughter and she began to gain weight, she described it as “terrible” and said she was on “red alert”.
She said: “Every morning you woke up to 20 WhatsApp messages and one of them was an advert that ran in the local paper showing Eve as an escort.
“It was awful, I had to turn off my phone at night. There came a time when you couldn’t sleep because the phone was ringing all the time.
“I had to watch my daughter get sick, have panic attacks, get depressed.”
She also revealed that Bricka had spoken to the same private investigator the Taylor family hired to investigate Ms Taylor’s stalking. Julie admitted she gave Bricka the contract details because he was also receiving messages – albeit sent by himself.
NHS Medical Director Dr. Taylor told the court how he was the subject of an investigation at work after allegations he inappropriately messaged an 11-year-old girl.
“Eve came to me upset and crying,” said consultant pediatrician, Dr. Taylor the court.
Ms Taylor’s father explained how correspondence was sent to his daughter by the hospital regarding the complaint. He said he knew the name [fake profile Olivia Summers] than the one his daughter had trouble with.
The court heard Ms Taylor’s stalker sent the letter along with the caption ‘Has your father already lost his job’.
dr Taylor tried to phone the director of care, Margaret Davies, but she was not allowed to speak to him as the allegation was being investigated.
Ms Davies would reportedly become a victim of Brickas. She told the court: “I walked into a trap. I didn’t realize I was the victim of a stalker. Neither Dr. Neither Taylor nor I knew who this person was, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have done everything to the best of my knowledge and belief.’
When the nurse was added to a group chat and “mocked”, she tried to block the number but found the stalker had “bypassed it”. She felt “upset, powerless, tearful and desperate.”
“I wanted to do my job and I felt like the stalker was in control of me. Walking across the parking lot at work I felt very vulnerable, I was like, ‘Is the stalker watching me? It had a massive impact on me, I lost faith in people’s innocence.
Bricka denies 10 counts of stalking and perverting the law, while his mother, who owns horses, denies perverting the administration of justice.
The eight-day process continues.
