Ricardo Lopez (January 14, 1975 -- September 12, 1996), also known as the Björk stalker, was an Uruguayan-born American pest control officer from Hollywood, Florida, who is known for his attempted assassination of the Icelandic musician Björk in 1996. Lopez recorded a video diary of himself talking about his plans over an eight month period, culminating in his videorecorded suicide. Lopez mailed a letter bomb, disguised as a book from a touring company and rigged with sulfuric acid, to Björk's residence in London. The bomb was intercepted by Scotland Yard before being able to harm anyone.
Danish filmmaker, Sami Saif, condensed Lopez's video diary into a 70 minute documentary, entitled The Video Diary of Ricardo Lopez, released in 2000.
