|Buffythevampireslayer||Just wanted to say, brilliant blog! If this info saves only 1 woman from this monster’s grasp, then it’s worthwhile. What you have here is a bonafide sociopath & they follow certain patterns down to a T & nope they cannot change without serious psychotherapy (which mostly doesn’t work because they seek to manipulate & outsmart the therapists). They are basically “people of the lie”, leading double lives; pathologically lying their way thru life, switching identities; porn & sex addicted ;dangerous ;fraudulent individuals …
In relationships the pattern with them is always the same – idealise- devalue-destroy & discard. They go thru life conning & taking advantage of ppl’s good nature. They detect vulnerability in empathic ppl, like a shark can smell blood & the scariest part is that they have no or at best, very little conscience or sense of remorse for any of their wrongdoings. Vampiristic, narcissistic, empty vessels that look just like u or me. Look up sociopathy & pray that his latest unsuspecting victim, takes heed of these warnings & gets away unscathed.
The last comment I have posted here says where he lives now with the name of a woman he is associated with. I have no means of verifying this to be true, but if it is, the woman needs to know the type of person she is associated with, and that she may be in imminent danger. I doubt that he has told her the complete truth about his past. Of course some people deny the truth, even if it written on a large rock in front of their house. If Peter Zimmer, or whatever name he goes by now, wishes to refute this comment, he can send me a comment, and I will print it. In my opinion, a person who has murdered once never loses those tendencies, so if I were that woman, I would end any relationship with him today. My thanks to the person who sent this information in. You may have saved a life.
Original Story Posted 3/24/16
That’s right. And he’s still walking the streets today.
In 1983, 14-year old Peter Zimmer aka Jovan Collier murdered his adoptive parents and his 10-year old brother who had been adopted as well. Brutally, excessively brutal. One of the worst in Wisconsin history according to an investigating officer at the scene.
Zimmer/Collier was not charged as an adult. He went to juvenile detention and was released just before turning 19. He claimed his inheritance because he had only been convicted of being delinquent and not guilty of murder. That technicality allowed him to collect a six-figure trust fund from the parents he killed, and change his name, and take off for Florida.
Well, what has this productive member of society been doing since then?
In 2010 he was convicted of aggravated stalking of his ex-girlfriend, a school teacher in Florida. She had a relationship with him but threw him out of her house when she found out he was on porn sites on the computer. He then began harassing/stalking her. Nasty phone calls, e-mails, vile presents sent to her home and her school. Vailed threats about her well-being when he finished with her. Oh, did I forget to mention he threatened her in public with a knife? Such a minor point. I’m sure you can understand why I forgot it. She did get a restraining order after the knife incident.
One more tiny bit of info. He put the school teacher’s name and address up on porn sites, and men were coming to the school teacher’s house to have sex.
You would think by now the school teacher knew about the 1983 murders, but she didn’t.
Our court system does protect the guilty again though, doesn’t it? First he was only delinquent when he killed his parents, and now the murders can’t be mentioned in court. Wow.
At the stalking trial the judge would not allow testimony about the murders Zimmer/Collier committed, his family he killed, but only that he had a violent past. The prosecution wanted to show the threats he had made to the school teacher were indeed real and quite dangerous. He was found guilty by the jury of stalking. The judge gave him 3 1/2 years but could have given him 6 years.
I forgot to mention when he finished serving time for stalking the Florida school teacher, he stalked a couple of more women, and served a short time in jail for that. That was 2013-2014.
During all the harassing/stalking of the Florida school teacher, at one time he pretended to be someone else, and put out the info that he hanged himself in an Orlando hotel.
Zimmer-Collier had actually visited his birth mother in Atlanta with this Florida school teacher. The school teacher called Zimmer-Collier’s birth mother and found out he was not dead, and about the murders that his birth mother had only found out about the year before, 2008, when she hired a private investigator to check Zimmer’s/Collier’s background.
Zimmer/Collier has not been sitting around idle since murdering his family in 1983. A short life resume please, not all, but some of his activities.
He’s been married twice and has two children, a boy and a girl, now adults. Surely I did not read that the daughter has conflicted feelings about how to react with her murdering father? The courts gave him two free passes, and now his daughter is giving him a third? I must have read that wrong.
His two wives did have sense enough to divorce him, one in 1993, and his second wife in 2005.
He’s worked at various construction jobs, even had one in Milwaukee where he was on a major hotel renovation site.
In 1990 he even served in the Air National Guard eight months while attending a college in St. Louis.
Some guy in construction, I don’t remember the state, gave him sub-contracting work and even let him live in his house with the construction guy and his wife, even after the construction guy and his wife learned about the murders. Did anyone mention insanity?
Zimmer/Collier is only forty-seven years old now. Just in the prime of his life, and it’s obvious he can move around at will anywhere he wants to.
All I can say, is that possibly coming to a neighborhood near you, or perhaps already there, I present to you Peter Zimmer/ Jovan Collier, con man, stalker, and all-American citizen.
And all these inconsequential bits of info I keep forgetting to remind you of. Zimmer/Collier does know how to kill.
