An Arizona woman accused of sending 65,000 texts to a man she met only once says she will stay in jail if that’s what the victim wants, while professing her undying love to him.
NBC reports that during a jailhouse interview with the media on Thursday, 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades attempted to explain why she allegedly sent so many texts to man she met on an online dating site before traveling from Arizona to California to meet him.
“If [he] wants me to go to jail, I should be in jail. I appreciate it. He’s the light, I’m the love. He knows what to do and I follow the rules.”
According to police, the victim rejected Ades after their first date, which sent her spiraling out of control as she tried desperately to get his attention, sometimes sending up to 500 texts per day. She’s also accused of breaking into his home and taking a bath in his bathtub while he was out of the country, later telling him she wanted to bathe in his blood.
“U do whatever u have to do to get here… but don’t ever try to leave me… I’ll kill you,” one of the messages reportedly read.
Ades said that after meeting her “healing angel” date online she made a trip from Arizona to his home in California in January 2017, where she spent three days with him before returning home. She also explained she was “following the number 33” while on her trip, a number she equates with love. Ades stated that although she gave the victim unconditional love, he later began acting odd.
“I told him, ‘If you ever block me on this app I would come and move here.’ So he blocked me, so I came here.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, police arrested Ades on May 4, 2018, after witnesses in Scottsdale said they saw a woman at a business “acting irrationally and claiming to be the owner’s wife.” Police later determined that the business owner was Ades’ victim. She was subsequently arrested and charged with harassment, stalking, and threatening.
The arrest came after Ades had already been arrested once for breaking into the victim’s home and sending thousands of texts, including disturbing threats of violence.
- “I hope you die … you rotten filthy Jew.”
- “Oh, what I would do w/your blood … I’d wanna bathe in it.”
- “I’m like the new Hitler … man was a genius.”
“That’s it?” Ades asked when a reporter asked if she sent the victim 65,000 texts, according to The Washington Post. “To me it seemed like more.”
Ades is being held without bond on charges of harassment, stalking, and threatening. She’s scheduled for her next court hearing on May 15.
“When you’re finding love, not everything is perfect,” Ades told reporters. “This is a journey.”
