Woman Accused of Sending 65,000 Text Messages to Man She Met Online
A woman is accused of breaking into a Paradise Valley home, bathing in the homeowner’s bathtub, and sending tens of thousands of disturbing text messages to the man’s phone after the pair went on one date.
In July 2017, 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades was found parked outside of the victim’s home, police said. The man also accused her of repeatedly texting him, despite him saying he no longer wanted to talk to her.
Officers found Ades still outside the victim’s home when they arrived and told her to leave, officials said. Shortly after, the man started to receive threatening text messages from the suspect.
Police received a similar report in December from the same residence, but officers were unable to locate her. On April 8, the victim called a detective a third time, saying he was out of the country, but saw Ades in his home while checking his home surveillance video.
When officers arrived at the home, the woman was taking a bath, police said. A large butcher knife was discovered on the passenger’s seat of her car. She was taken into custody and charged with trespassing.
After Ades was released from jail, she allegedly started sending more threatening text messages to the victim – some of the messages alluded that harm may come to him.
Less than three weeks later, the victim called authorities to report receiving multiple threatening text messages from her. The man also explained that they met on a dating website, and after one date Ades began stalking and harassing him.
Ades allegedly sent about 65,000 text messages to the man’s phone. The victim said that she sent about 500 text messages to him a day. In one of Ades’ messages, she allegedly stated, “Don’t ever try to leave me I’ll kill you…I don’t wanna be a murderer.”
She also said that she wanted to wear his body parts and bathe in his blood, court paperwork said. Ades was arrested on Tuesday on charges of threatening, stalking and harassment.
While being questioned, the suspect admitted that she threatened him because she didn’t want him to leave and because she loved him.
