A Phoenix woman accused of stalking a man she met on a dating site and sending him more than 65,000 text messages apparently sent more than twice that many.
Jacqueline Ades sent a man more than 159,000 text messages — some of which were threatening — over the course of nearly 10 months, according to police records the Arizona Republic obtained via a public records request. The two went on a single date.
The man, whose name has not been released, called the police after he found Ades parked outside his home in July 2017. Paradise Valley officers escorted her off his property and that’s when police say Ades began threatening the man.
One text read: “I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones.”
Another read,”I’d wear ur fascia n the top of ur skull n ur hands n feet.”
The woman told police the texts were in jest.
“It’s funny,” she said in reference to the text about wearing the man’s fascia.
Asked if she thought her texts were normal, she said, “No, I don’t think anything I say is normal. I understand now.”
She said it was fine if he didn’t want to be with her.
“It’s OK if that’s how (he) feels,” Ades said. “Somebody else should love him. He has so much to love. He’s so cute. I can’t believe I scared him.”
In April 2018, Ades was arrested for trespassing inside his home while he was out of the country.
Officers found Ades in the house taking a bath. After she was arrested, she asked, “Why is this happening to me?”
When police asked her what she was doing there, she gave a bizarre answer.
“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,” Ades told the officer.
Officers found a large butcher knife in Ades’ car when she gave them permission to retrieve her purse.
The woman also reportedly visited the man’s workplace and claimed to be his wife.
Ades has pleaded not guilty to charges of stalking and criminal trespassing. Her trial was scheduled to begin Feb. 5.
