“‘You’re my friend’s neighbor.'” Concerned for her safety, Kurnat blocked “Jay” on the app, but that didn’t stop him.Over the next 48 hours, Kurnat says the man reached out three more times.In December 2016, a 26-year-old woman in Mexico City went missing after having gone on several Tinder dates with a guy her age.Her bones were then found in a trash bag at his home, and he was accused of dissolving her body in hydrochloric acid after refusing to have sex with him.
Friends and family were immediately concerned when Loofe failed to show up for work at Menards – a Midwestern chain of home-improvement stores – her car still parked in the driveway of her home.
“The texts were saying, I know what apartment you are in, you need to be careful what you do.” Neither Davis or Kurnat ever met him in person, but another woman we spoke to by phone knows the man in the photo well and says he used to work in IT at Northern Illinois University, where Kurnat graduated from and Davis once lived nearby. De Kalb police are still looking for the man on the app.
He knows how to use the internet as a tool and a resource, the woman said. The women met the man on several different apps, and each has different policies in place to report stalking.
Two people were charged on Monday with the murder of Loofe, a 24-year-old woman from Lincoln, Nebraska whose body was found dismembered in garbage bags and thrown into a field in December.
Bailey Boswell, 24, and Aubrey Trail, 51, are currently in custody in nearby Saline County, awaiting trial for first-degree murder and the improper disposal of human remains.
That’s when she learned she was not the only victim.
