The concept of online dating is a little crazy. You’re basically trusting a stranger to be a decent person even though y’all have never met.
There have been lots of horror stories surrounding online dating and the tragic thing is they end in death.
The most recent comes from Massachusetts where a 21 year old woman, Mieke Oort, was stabbed to death after her Tinder date became jealous according to the NY Post. Her date, Thomas R. became jealous after a date of theirs where he then became a stalker.
A 21-year-old Massachusetts woman was fatally stabbed by a Tinder date-turned-stalker in the Netherlands — after he placed a GPS device on her bike when she rekindled her romance with an ex-boyfriend.
Mieke Oort, who was studying at the NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, was killed Sunday morning in her apartment in Leeuwarden, a city about 85 miles north of Amsterdam, WCVB reported.
A 27-year-old man identified as Thomas R. was arrested in the murder, MassLive reported, citing Boevennieuws, which described the Dutch suspect as a “jealous Tinder date” of Oort’s.
“She was my baby sister. We don’t really know how to cope with it,” Mieke’s sister Danique Oort told WCVB. “She had just so much more to give and she had a lot of love for everyone.
“She was the sweetest, strongest woman I knew. She really just put everyone else before her. Everyone,” Danique added.
The grieving sister told the news outlet that the suspect also ignited a fire in the apartment.
Thomas was arrested and will be looking at spending the rest of his life behind bars.
This is a terrible story, so please be careful when you are on these dating apps you have no idea what who these people are and what they are capable of.
