Woman arrested after allegedly sending 65,000 texts to man she met online
She sent as many as 500 texts in one day.
An Arizona woman who allegedly sent 65,000 text messages to a man she went on a single date with has been charged with threatening, stalking, harassment, and failure to appear in court.
Court records claim Jacqueline Claire Ades, 31, met the Paradise Valley man through an online dating site and started showing up at his house and office, on top of sending as many as 500 text messages a day, court documents claim. Many of the texts were reportedly threatening or abusive. In one case, police claim she wrote, “Don’t ever try to leave me… I’ll kill you… I don’t wanna be a murderer!” In another, she allegedly texted, “I hope you die… you rotten filthy Jew” and “I’m like the new Hitler… man was a genius.”
“I felt like I met my soulmate and everything was just the way it was and I thought we would just do what everybody else did and we would get married and everything would be fine, but that’s not what happened,” Ades said according to KPHO-TV.
Paradise Valley authorities say Ades began sending threatening texts after police escorted her away from the man’s home. She also reportedly broke into his house to take a bath and was found with a butcher knife, court documents reveal.
“Oh, what I would do w/your blood… I’d wanna bathe in it,” she allegedly texted, according to KPHO-TV.
Scottsdale, Arizona police also found Ades at the man’s office building, claiming that she was the man’s wife. She was arrested and she is currently being held without bond.
In light of her arrest, Ades has since said she “loves” the man and does not blame him for being charged.
“When you’re finding love, not everything is perfect. This was a journey,” Ades said, KPHO-TV reports. “And I want to apologize because no one would ever be more sorry.”
