What happened with Ava Majury? A stalker, a shooting & court case

On February 17, 2022, Dexerto reported that Ava Majury and her family spoke with The New York Times about an incident in 2020 involving a stalker that had broken into the family home.

According to the NYT interview, 18-year-old Eric Rohan Justin arrived at their house with a shotgun and blew open the front door. Ava’s father chased him off and went to grab his handgun to stand guard while waiting for the police.

Justin returned, and Mr. Majury requested the teenager to drop his weapon. When he instead pointed it at him, the father fired at Justin — killing him.

After the incident, it was revealed that she had experienced another classmate stalking her who had allegedly received communication from Justin before he passed.

Ava took this classmate to court shortly after, and it was revealed on March 28, 2022, that the court case was dismissed.

After the announcement that her court case had been dismissed, Ava told reporters outside of the courthouse that despite the decision — she still plans on spreading messages of positivity across her platforms.

For now, though, it’s likely that she’ll take a bit of a break from her life as a social media star.
