After she was rejected following a first date, a woman sent the uninterested man a normal number of texts — 65,000 — and is now being accused of stalking.
On Tuesday, 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades of Paradise Valley, Arizona, was arrested and charged with threatening, stalking, and harassing an unnamed man she met on a dating app. In Ades’s version of the story, though, she was just “crazy” and “in love.”
“I felt like I met my soul mate and everything was just the way it was and I thought we would just do what everybody else did and we’d just like get married and everything would be fine,” she said.
This story started in July 2017, when Ades was found parked outside of the man’s home after he apparently told her that he was not interested in continuing their relationship past one date. Police promptly showed up and told her to leave, though this didn’t stop her from stopping by again in December.
But this past April, the situation escalated when Ades broke into the man’s home, and police found her taking a bath in his tub.
Meanwhile, she was sending him approximately 500 texts a day, according to a police report, the messages included:
- “Don’t ever try to leave me… I’ll kill you… I don’t wanna be a murderer!”
- “I’m like the new Hitler… man was a genius.”
- “I’d wear your fascia ‘n the top of your skull ‘n your hands ‘n feet.”
- “Oh, what I would do w/your blood… I’d wanna bathe in it.”
When asked about the threatening messages, she told police “she threatened him because she did not want him to leave.”
“I was looking for my healing angel…the psychic I met told me would meet a healing angel,” she said in an interview from prison.
