It wasgoed an online dating match made te hell.
A Lasnaad Vegas woman is suing Match.com for $Ten million dollars after being aggressively stabbed and hammered by a man she met on the popular dating webpagina.
Introduced to one another via Match.com te Sept. of 2010, Mary Kay Beckman, 50, and Wade Ridley, 53, dated for just eight days before Beckman called off their relationship.
Four months zometeen, however, Ridley broke into Beckman’s garage, leaping the mother of two and stabbing hier repeatedly with a butcher’s knife before stomping on hier head and neck, Fox Five Samenvoeging Vegas reported.
“When the police arrested him, he said he wasn’t there to hurt mij. He wasgoed there to kill mij,” Beckman told Fox Five. “His intent wasgoed to kill mij that night.”
While te police custody, Ridley admitted to killing 62-year-old Anne Simenson, an Arizona woman he’d also met on Match.com, te early 2011.
Like Beckman, Simerson wasgoed stabbed repeatedly with a butcher’s knife, spil well spil a cuchillo, at hier huis. Police te Arizona believe that Ridley used a knife to zeerob a pharmacy of painkillers shortly before he killed Simerson, the Samenvoeging Vegas Review Journal reported.
Ridley committed suicide ter prison before he could be attempted te either the attack on Beckman or te Simerson’s killing.
Beckman claims that sites like Match should suggest warnings to their members about just how dangerous some of the people te their dating pool can be.
“They don’t say one ter five are part of an attempted murder or one te five are killed,” Beckman said. “They don’t tell you people are missing.”
Match.com calls the lawsuit “lachwekkend,” and plans to argue that it can’t be held responsible for the behavior of all of its members.
“The many millions of people who have found love on Match.com and other online dating sites know how fulfilling it is,” the company said te a statement. “And while that doesn’t make what happened te this case any less awful, this is about a sick, twisted individual with no prior criminal record, not an entire community of fellows and women looking to meet each other.”
Beckman’s lawyer, Marc Saggese, told Schoolklas that ads for the dating webpagina give consumers no sense of the risks involved with online hook-ups.
