A woman has been arrested for stalking a man with over 159,000 text messages. She began sending the messages after she went on a single date with him.
31-year-old Jacquelyn Ades threatened the man in some of the text messages.
Ades, a licensed beautician from Florida, met the unnamed victim, identified only as the CEO of a Scottsdale-area company that sells skincare products, through the dating site Luxy, which bills itself as a dating service for millionaires.
The two went out together once, but the man was not interested in pursuing a relationship with Ades, documents stated. Despite that, the woman continued sending him text messages, sometimes up to 500 a day. The businessman contacted police in July 2017 when he spotted Ades parked outside his Paradise Valley home.
Before long, Ades allegedly began inundating the object of her apparent obsession with increasingly threatening messages, including one that read,
’I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones.’
Ades’ arrest records indicate that the woman was ‘showing signs of mental illness.’ In April 2018, the victim was remotely checking his home surveillance video when he spotted Ades.
Police officers went to the home and found the 31-year-old woman taking a bath in the man’s tub. When police searched Ades’ car, they found a large butcher knife on the passenger seat.
When asked by police to explain her presence inside the man’s home, Ades replied:
‘I guess that I made up a whole scenario in my head where I live here, so I came here and pretended that’s what was happening.’
The victim said after that incident, Ades sent him more threatening texts.
When asked if she thought her messages were normal, she said:
‘No, I don’t think anything I say is normal.’
Ades said she understood that the man did not want to be with her.
‘It’s OK if that’s how [he] feels,’ she said. ‘Somebody else should love him. He has so much to love. He’s so cute. I can’t believe I scared him.’
Ades is currently being held without bond at Maricopa County Jail. She is scheduled to go on trial in February.
