Rzucek said the attacks include threats, fake Facebook accounts and a constant stream of insults.

Chris Watts pleaded guilty to the murder charges against him and is serving a life sentence in prison, in exchange for avoiding the death penalty.

Rzucek is calling on Congress to pass laws to protect victims who are dealing with abuse after unspeakable crimes occur.
