An Arizona woman, Jacqueline Ades, who broke into a Paradise Valley home, and reportedly sent tens of thousands of disturbing text messages to the man’s phone after the pair went on one date, was found in the Paradise Valley man’s bathtub.
Investigators disclosed that she had met the guy online about a year ago, but she won’t leave him alone. Court documents say Ades sent the victim about 500 messages a day, which included disturbing ones like “I want to wear your body parts” and “bathe in your blood.”
Officers say they found a butcher knife in her car when she was most recently arrested on charges of threatening, stalking and harassment.
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. 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.
Ades told reporters in a jailhouse interview Thursday that she quickly fell in love with the man, KPHO-TV reported.
“I felt like I met my soulmate and I thought we would just do what everybody else did and we would get married and everything would be fine,” Ades told reporters.
Ades is suspected of sending the man around 65,000 text messages and sometimes 500 in a single day, court documents show. When a reporter asked whether Ades recognized that sending thousands of text messages seemed threatening, Ades responded that love is “not perfect,” KPHO-TV reported.
“I love him,” she said.
Court documents say Ades told police she didn’t want to hurt the man and sent the threatening texts because she didn’t want him to leave.
