A woman from Arizona, USA, who allegedly sent 159,000 text messages to a man and broke into his home after they went on a single date believes a jury will find her innocent.
Jacqueline Ades was found mentally incompetent to stand trial in March. But she wants a jury to hear her case, believing they will even order her to marry the man.
‘They’re going to say, “You’re not guilty and on top of it we, like, demand that you two get married,”‘ Ades told The Arizona Republic in a new jailhouse interview.
Ades has been behind bars at the Maricopa County Estrella Jail since May 2018 after she allegedly stalked and harassed the man for 10 months.
She sent him threatening text messages including one that read: ‘I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones (sic)’.
Another one read: ‘Oh what would I do w ur blood! Id wanna bathe in it’.
Ades and the man, who has only been identified as the CEO of a company that sells skincare and spa products, met on a dating site.
She claimed that the pair met on Luxy, an online dating service that calls itself the ‘best luxury millionaire matchmaker dating app’.
Luxy can only be accessed by those who earn more than $200,000 or if they are voted in by other members based on their attractiveness
Authorities said Ades and the man chatted on the site for a few days and then went on one date.
Although the man told Ades he did not want to see her again, she allegedly began texting him incessantly – sometimes up to 500 times a day. In July 2017, she parked outside of his house.
Officers found Ades taking a bath in his home. When officers asked why she was there, she began referring to scientific equations. ‘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,’ she told them.
Officers also found a large butcher knife in her car at the time.
After she failed to appear to multiple court hearings, Ades was arrested the following month.
On the way to prison, she told officers: ‘He said to me, “Go away” for the last 16 months. And I couldn’t, because the more I loved him, the more I learned [about] the secrets of the universe.’
