Jacqueline Ades purportedly sent the texts over a 10-month period. She was previously thought to have sent him 65,000 texts, but now she's been accused of sending more than double that number. Ades’ arrest records detail her “showing signs of mental illness,” the Arizona Republic reports.
Ades first met the victim through Luxy, a dating site for millionaires. The pair went on one date in 2017; Ades then became infatuated with him and began stalking him as the man didn’t want a relationship with her.
In July 2017, the man called the police to notify them that Ades was in her car outside his home. She then allegedly began messaging him threatening texts, like, “I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys and chopsticks outta ur hand bones.” Another read, “Oh what would I do with your blood! I’d wanna bathe in it."
Last April, the man called the police to tell them that she had broken into his home when he was out of the country; surveillance video showed Ades taking a bath in his tub. When the police arrested her, a large butcher knife was discovered in her car. She was subsequently charged with first-degree criminal trespassing of a residential structure.
After failing to appear in court, she visited the man’s business in May and said she was his wife. She was subsequently taken into custody and caught felony charges of stalking, threatening, and intimidation, and a misdemeanor count of harassment. Ades' trial is set to start in February after pleading not guilty to stalking and trespassing.
During the police interrogation, Ades said she wouldn’t hurt the man and claimed “something came over" her when she sent those texts. “No, I don’t think anything I say is normal. I understand now,” Ades told police.
“Somebody else should love him," Ades continued. "He has so much to love. He’s so cute. I can’t believe I scared him.”
