Everyday people meet online and agree to a date. It must happen millions of times a year, right? Sometimes those dates lead to second dates, and third dates and maybe even a relationship and marriage. Sometimes, it's an uncomfortable 45 minutes and the parties agree it's best that they not meet again, ever. Usually, it's probably it's something in between. Then there is the other outcome. The outcome no one anticipates. This is that story. This is how crazy it could get.
It's the not-so-classic story of girl meets boy, boy dumps the girl and girl goes bat guano insane and texts the boy 65 thousand times over the next year. Spoiler alert, our girl, Jacqueline Claire Ades, ends up in jail.
It all started on January 19th, 2017 when our stalker - er, lover? - met a man online and she immediately knew he was her soul mate. Jacqueline was the "love" and he was the "light" and she was ready to follow him everywhere. From that moment on, she would devote herself completely to him.
He, however, did not get the same feeling. No, in fact, after a couple days, he was pretty sure he'd had enough of her. Seems she might have been a little nuts.
Well, she was about to show him how nuts she could get.
Over the next year, crazy doesn't even begin to describe what this poor guy went through. Through various means, including straight texting and the WhatsApp, Jacqueline is accused of sending 65,000 messages. That's right, up to 500 message a day!
Some of the crazier things among the thousands, police say, were:
That wasn't all though. In addition to the messages, Jacqueline would stalk her "soul mate," even showing up to his place of employment claiming to be his wife. Then one day, she finally took it too far.
Apparently, the 65,000 messages weren't working, as Jacqueline decided breaking into the man's home was the logical next step. Alarms went off, but that didn't stop Jacqueline from jumping into the tub for a quick soak, which is where cops found her.
Obviously, she was arrested. On May 8th, she was charged with various felonies, including threatening, stalking, harassment and failure to appear charges.
After the arrest, she gave a completely bonkers press conference, rambling on about Einstein, Atlantis, love and, of course, commitment. She was nothing if not committed. And speaking of committed, that might be how she ends up.
If you have a few minutes, it's well worth watching.
