Online dating tragedies weekendmeets dating
And now Stephan, from Wirral, Merseyside, is determined that his sister's death will not in vain.He is appealing for women in violent relationships to seek help, and be cautious when online dating.“When the police arrested him, he said he wasn't there to hurt me. "His intent was to kill me that night." While in police custody, Ridley admitted to killing 62-year-old Anne Simenson, an Arizona woman he’d also met on Match.com, in early 2011.
"The basis of the lawsuit is the advertising that is utilized by Match.com, lulling women and men into a false sense of security," Saggese said.
Speaking for the first time since his sister Sharon Winters was murdered by online lover Kevin Hawke, Stephen urges women to be wary of meeting men on the internet."She was a lonely heart just wanting love," Stephen said of his sister.
The 44-year-old said: "Sharon was the kindest, most loving sister.
All she wanted to do was find her soulmate."She wore her heart on her sleeve."She was kind and caring – a lovely woman."Sharon started looking on internet dating sites in 2013, when she was off work with depression.
An alcoholic, Hawke had drunk 15 pints of lager and a bottle of vodka. Apparently Sharon had begged for her life and held her hands up to protect herself.
