‘May the 4th be with you. Not my favorite day, one year ago,’ she began in her lengthy Instagram post.

‘We were filming the reveal for Donelle’s episode and CBS Sunday Morning when Ben started getting messages from lots of folks in town about a 54 year old California man dressed like a Star Wars storm trooper, wearing an ankle monitor bracelet, who had come to town and was saying some very strange things,’ she added. 

‘Things like “God sent me here to protect the women of Laurel, specifically little Helen,”‘ she added.

Erin said that this man, ‘had bought a house a block from ours and was living in it with nothing but a suitcase and these toys for when my 3 year old daughter “comes over to visit.” 

Her husband Ben Napier, who she’s been married to since 2008, ‘saw red, his blood boiled,’ she said of the incident, adding she was, ‘terrified and 9.5 months pregnant’ with her second child, Mae, who was born on May 28, 2021.

‘In those two weeks that followed, before he was finally sent back to CA, he found Mal and Jim’s baby girl on walks with her nanny and said unsettling things. Disgusting things,’ she added of her neighbors.

After his arrival, the whole town had, ’24 hour security officers at home, while we slept, while we worked,’ which lead to some awkward conversations with Helen.

‘Helen asked who they were and why they were here, and we never told her the truth. “They work with us! They’re friends of ours who are staying with us for a little while!”’ she said of the security personnel.

‘A year on, I still think of this thing every day but it doesn’t scare me anymore. I’m thankful for the way our neighborhood guarded us and put up a hedge of protection when we needed it and it further validated what I already knew: protect your kids in the online world much as you can,’ she concluded.

Napier made headlines in December 2020 when she deleted an Instagram post that featured the back of Helen’s head, which resulted in some backlash.

‘Because Ben and I have this job, it means we open ourselves up to the public in ways that are sometimes vulnerable and I think there’s value in that. I think there is a fine line between privacy and helping others by being vulnerable about some aspects of your life when you’re in the spotlight,’ she wrote.

‘But tonight, because of this job we have, after posting a photo of the back of my daughter’s head (why do we never show her face? for her privacy and because of vicious strangers who lurk and comment or could seek her out) there were cruel comments within moments,’ she added.
