A Stone County man is in jail because he refused to take “no” for an answer and would not stop stalking a woman, according to court information.
According to the documents filed in Stone County Circuit Court, Travis Austin Henson, 24, has been stalking the victim for days — sending her emails, leaving notes, calling at all hours, following her in his vehicle, and driving by the victim’s house shouting, “I love you.”
Henson also had a “No Contact” order filed against him.

He was arrested on June 14, 2020, for domestic battery in the third degree and terroristic threatening.
The court documents say the victim is dealing with severe anxiety from the harassment, can’t sleep at night, and she told authorities that she is in fear of her life.
The court record shows that Stone County investigators, led by Chief Deputy Dammon McGilton, have documented Henson and his harassment of the victim.
Henson has been arrested and placed in the Stone County Jail. He has been charged with: stalking in the first degree and harassing communications.
A local judge has apparently sent Henson a message that the harassment will cease. He set a bond on Henson of $500,000.
