Bitter San Diego woman conducts crazed war against couple who outbid her on house; accused of soliciting rape.

Authorities say woman sicced rapists, missionaries and embarrassing mail to owners of home.

Kathy Rowe says it was a prank that got out of hand. Embittered because she lost out on a desirable Carmel Valley home, prosecutors say she set out to get the female homeowner raped.

The Union Tribune reports Rowe fell afoul of the law when she posted a rape fantasy ad posing as the wife,

She posed as the wife in online adult entertainment ads titled “Carmel Valley Freak Show,” inviting strange men over to the couple’s home for sex and describing scenarios of a rape fantasy to those who responded. The wife’s photo and address were included in the postings.

“I love to be surprised and have a man just show up at my door and force his way in the door and on me, totally taking me while I say no,” Rowe wrote to one man who responded.

One man decided to follow up on the offer, but was thwarted once by a locked gate and a second time when the husband answered the door.

Rowe has been fighting the felony charges of solicitation of rape and sodomy since 2012. 

Rowe, a San Diego County employee, wanted the home for her family, including her severely disabled daughter. She was also chosen as one of San Diego County’s Mother’s of the Year. Read more here.
