Investigation revealed Marshall had been impersonating teachers, friends, and family members of the victims. Marshall would harass, pressure, and coerce each victim.

The FBI was able to forensically match the devices to Marshall. The victim stated, “feeling followed or surveillance at all times . . . [and] faced threats to her reputation in the community, both professionally and personally.”
