Jennifer Lawrence - Jennifer Lawrence's stalker will remain in police custody

Jennifer Lawrence's alleged stalker will be held in police custody until his trial begins.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin concluded after a two-hour hearing in Louisville, Kentucky, on Wednesday (18.09.13) that Han Cong Zhao, 23, of Vancouver, Canada - who was arrested in April for harassing the Oscar-winning actress's brother Blaine Lawrence with over 200 phone calls, emails, and text messages, in which he claimed to be Jennifer's ''husband for life'' - could be a danger to her family and others if he was released on bail or flee to his native China.

According to the Huffington Post, the judge said: ''Mr. Zhao has no connections here and apparently not strong connections in Canada. The evidence is strong. He presents a danger.''

Mr. Zhao will appear before a federal grand jury by mid-October and is charged with interstate stalking and repeated harassing phone communications.

The defendant allegedly used computer programs to hide his identity and location when he first started contacting Jennifer's brother in early April, but eventually travelled to her hometown of Louisville and gave his real name.

FBI Special Agent Nicholas Zarro said that many of the messages indicated the 'Silver Linings Playbook' star was in danger, made references to the Bible, and some threatened her family members if they did not put Zhao in contact with her.

Jennifer's family reportedly became extremely worried when he said ''bad things'' would happen, adding he ''wouldn't kill anyone for sure,'' but ''all hell's going to break loose''.
