Crazy People Are Dangerous (and They’re All Using Online Dating Apps Now)

See if you can’t spot the red-flag warning here:

A Melbourne woman who met a man using an online dating app, invited him over for sex and then strangled him in bed has been found guilty of manslaughter.
Jamie Lee Dolheguy was charged with murder over the death of Indian student Maulin Rathod at a Sunbury house in July 2018.
But a Supreme Court jury instead found she was guilty of manslaughter.
It was never disputed that Dolheguy killed Mr Rathod but her barrister questioned whether she had “murderous intent”.
She was 18 when she met her victim via the online dating app Plenty of Fish and they exchanged brief messages before agreeing to meet up.
Her online profile indicated she was dating for the first time, had borderline personality disorder, suicidal ideation and extreme fetishes, including bondage.
“We’ll do whatever you want,” Mr Rathod told Dolheguy via text before he drove over to her house.
While Mr Rathod, 24, was on his way, the teenager went online and searched “I’m going to kill someone tonight for fun” and “I will kill someone tonight, I want to commit murder”.

If she tells you she’s crazy, believe her.

When my brother Kirby told me about this story, I Googled “Plenty of Fish murder” and guess what? Online dating is a good way to get killed:

Seems to be kind of pattern here, you might say. And what have I been telling you for years? Online dating is for losers. The mere fact that someone is on a dating app tells you that nobody who knows them in real life wants to date them — an automatic red-flag warning. And coincidentally, you may remember this case:


Ayoola Ajayi, 31, was charged in June with murdering 23-year-old University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck. There was a related development in the case last week:

The man accused of killing 23-year-old University of Utah student MacKenzie Lueck is one step closer to a trial for unrelated charges alleging he kidnapped and sexually abused another woman in March 2018.
Ayoola Ajayi, facing four felony counts, is accused of abusing a woman he met on the Latter-day Saint dating app Mutual. After hearing testimony and arguments from attorneys, 3rd District Judge Vernice Trease determined Friday that there was enough evidence for the case to move forward to trial.
Ajayi pleaded not guilty Friday to aggravated kidnapping and three charges of forcible sexual abuse. A trial has been set for February.
In that case, prosecutors allege that Ajayi invited a woman to his home to cook her dinner on March 10, 2018, and that while they watched TV on his couch, he started “intensely” kissing her and trying to touch her inappropriately and forcefully.
When the woman attempted to get away, Ajayi allegedly pinned her down and bit her at least three times, “causing her significant pain, and left bruising and bite marks,” the charges said.
The woman came forward to police after Ajayi was arrested for allegedly killing Lueck in June.
He faces charges of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and abuse or desecration of a human body in connection with Lueck’s slaying. . . .
Investigators have searched Lueck and Ajayi’s social media profiles and online activity, and have said evidence showed the two were texting the night Lueck disappeared. But police have not disclosed how they first met.

We may never learn the details in the Lueck case. Ask yourself why prosecutors are bringing Ajayi to trial first on this earlier sexual assault case, and the obvious answer is that they want to convict him of this felony before they move forward with the murder case. Once he is convicted in the sexual assault case, Ajayi will be a prison inmate and there will be no chance of him making bail. Then the prosecution will have more leverage to get Ajayi to accept a plea bargain. They want him to plead guilty, I suspect, because they want to spare Mackenzie’s family the ordeal of learning exactly why it was their daughter agreed to meet a complete stranger at 3 a.m. She was reportedly meeting men through “sugar baby” sites, which isn’t exactly prostitution, but close enough.
