Sandra Bullock’s stalker has been found dead after a long standoff with police. Joshua James Corbett, the 42-year-old man who was previously convicted of stalking the Oscar-winning actress, was found dead inside his home in La Crescenta, Calif. from a self-inflicted wound, according to a report by Variety.

Corbett’s suicide came after a standoff occurred when the Los Angeles Police Department served a warrant at his home on Wednesday. Corbett, who was served the warrant for failing to show up for an April 23 probation hearing, reportedly barricaded himself in a building located near the back of his property and told responding SWAT officers and crisis negotiators that he had a weapon. Corbett threatened to kill the officers but ultimately ended the five-hour standoff by killing himself. It is not immediately clear how Joshua Corbett ended his life, but a report by NBC Los Angeles revealed that his death was from a self-inflicted wound that was not the result of a gunshot.

As Inquisitr previously reported, Joshua Corbett was sentenced to five years of probation and treatment in a mental health facility for breaking and entering Sandra Bullock’s home in 2014 after jumping the front gate on her property. At the time of the break-in, the actress came face to face with her stalker and quickly locked herself in a bedroom closet and called 911 for help. Sandra Bullock told responders that the man who broke into her house thought he was her husband and the father of her young son, Louie. According to NBC News, after he was detained by police, Corbett called out to Bullock, saying, “Sandy, I’m sorry. Please don’t press charges.”

BREAKING: Sandra Bullock Just Confirmed The EMOTIONAL News, Praying For Your Safety — (NewsBake)

Sandra Bullock just confirmed all of the rumors, this is terrifying! Prayers for safety…

It was just a couple of weeks ago that Sandra Bullock had the scare of a lifetime. The movie star found a STALKER inside of her own home. According to Yahoo “A man was arrested inside Sandra Bullock’s home has pleaded no contest to stalking the Oscar-winning actress and breaking into her home.”

The suspect was Joshua James Corbett, who entered the plea Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was immediately ordered to continue treatment at a mental health facility after his crime.

She has a restraining order on the stalker and does not want to take her chances. This wasn’t the first encounter with this man either. According to TMZ this is the second restraining order she has had to have on this man.

Sandra’s lawyer, Ed McPherson, beelined it for court Friday and got a TRO against Joshua Corbett, who got 5 years probation last month for the 2014 break-in.

After the police arrested Corbett they apparently found a notebook on him. The notebook had a bunch of scribbles and writing in it detailing his intention to sexually assault Bullock. “The notebook also described sexual, lurid acts.”

Cops also found a number of illegal firearms at Corbett’s house, including machine guns, assault rifles and explosive devices. In all, there were 24 firearms.

According to the court documents, the man suffers from bipolar schizophrenia. This is a huge concern for Sandra, and is very creepy. We are all hoping that he gets the help he needs and doesn’t bother her again! Especially since he isn’t in jail.

Sandra Bullock’s Stalker Convicted Of Burglary, Felony Stalking, Receives 5 Years Probation — (ET Canada)

A man arrested after breaking into Sandra Bullock’s home in 2014 has finally had his day in court, with Associated Press reporting that Joshua James Corbett was convicted on counts of felony stalking and burglary after entering a plea of no contest.

Corbett, 41, was arrested inside Bullock’s Los Angeles home in June 2014. Bullock came face to face with Corbett when she heard loud noises inside her house at approximately 1 a.m. Seeing Corbett in her hallway, she locked herself in her bedroom and called 911.

When police arrived to detain Corbett, he reportedly yelled to her: “Sandy, I’m sorry, please don’t press charges.” At the time, he was carrying a notebook containing photos of Bullock clipped from magazines in addition to some handwritten notes, one of which read: “I will forever be thinking of you and Louie, my son, as you are my wife by law, the law of God and you belong to me and me to you.”

Investigators later discovered a cache of weapons after searching his home, but weapons charges were later dropped after a judge determined that LAPD detectives violated Corbett’s rights when they convinced him to let them enter his home in order to search guns. Had those charges not been dropped, Corbett would have faced a potential sentence of 12 years.

Despite the conviction, Corbett will serve no jail time. He was sentenced to five years probation, and ordered to continue mental health treatment at an in-patient facility. In addition, Corbett has been ordered to stay away from the “Gravity” star and make no attempt to contact her for a period of 10 years.

“I’d already hurt somebody that I didn’t intend to,” Corbett said during one of his hearings. “I did not want to affect my family with my actions.”

While Corbett won’t be heading to the slammer, TMZ points out that the terms of his sentencing contain a silver lining. Until now, Bullock only had a restraining order to protect her from Corbett, a measure that does little good if the person under the order is suffering from mental health issues and isn’t taking the necessary medication.

Now that Corbett is on probation,” notes TMZ, “he’ll be monitored by a probation officer who can keep tabs on him and make sure he takes his meds. Typically, someone who takes the required meds becomes harmless.”
