    That is absolutely terrifying. I hope they catch the sick bastard who's doing it. In the meantime, if you use hookups apps please use caution.

    Your story is from Feb 14, 2013. Have there been any more recent developments? But I think it's already been established with other cases that gay online hookups, and also bar pickups, come with risk.

    True. However many serial killers have gaps between murders, & it's only been 2 months since that article. Looking up info now to see any new developments since.

    Just wanted to warn others.

    Naturally, since a reminder made can be a life saved. RJ is like a moving conveyor belt, with new members joining all the time, some being young, inexperienced and naive about the gay world. What old timers find repetition can be revelation to the newbie.

    But I was curious about any further developments, and since you created this thread, in my laziness I pushed the follow-up off on you. LOL! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'll bet stuff like that goes on more than people realize ... Those are just the bodies they find ... I wonder how many there are that are just listed as missing that fall prey to internet hookups?

    The problem is that many guys are too modest to have sex in public.icon_razz.gif

    dont we have simple technology so cops can check people's online accounts and find out who they texted last and stuff like that? who would text a guy... go over then kill him... would be easy to find right? i usually chat with a dude for a while before meeting... could be weeks or so... now and then i do meet on the same night but always get a cell phone and make sure it works by texting... and unless i know them well at that point i go there instead of them coming here plus i have roommates so there's always safety in numbers... but at the same time you gotta live life and not be scared of everything

    and how tough is it to find out from his phone or puter what he did last? oh look he chatted with bjfuckfestNY one hour before dying and they agreed to meet... hmm... i wonder if that's a clue or he got a text from this number about hooking up... i guess if the intention was murder then the killer would avoid all contact but if the theory is they met online there's an absolute trail to follow...

    if i were to kill someone like that... i would chat via a new account created using some free wifi somewhere so there was no trace... and never use that account or isp ever again
