Ranee Mckelvey, 53, was twice divorced when she decided to try her luck with the Canadian-based dating website, Plenty of Fish. Through the platform, she met year-old David Reed.
Today, Reed is facing a charge of open murder and attempted arson in her death. According to police, Reed smothered Mckelvey, then tried to burn the house down.
Anyone that met her, liked her. She just had a big heart full of gold. When people turn to online dating apps, they hope to make a connection, not end up as a victim. But authorities warn that as online dating sites grow in popularity, so do the risks. While the Mckelvey case is extreme, it's the latest example of violence stemming from online dating apps:. Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said he advises people to be cautious when it comes to online dating.
Online dating apps have exploded in popularity. Canton resident and U. Eggleston said he is not fond of the stigma surrounding the use of dating sites.
He added that when used correctly, dating sites are a tool. Although Eggleston was lucky enough to find the woman of his dreams, those surfing the web to search for their soul mate may come across profiles of people who are not who they say they are. So Jacob and Mckelvey's sister-in-law decided to stop at Mckelvey's house to check on her.
What they found still haunts her. Mckelvey was dead, a natural gas line was turned on and candles were burning throughout the dwelling on Southhampton Avenue. Police believe Reed asphyxiated Mckelvey and tried to burn the house down.
Jacob said she doesn't blame the dating app for what happened. She said the fault lies with the justice system.
Reed's rap sheet included several offenses, including two counts of aggravated stalking, two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and illegal weapon possession — details he left out of his dating profile. Authorities said dating apps were the common thread for a pair of serial rapists who were convicted last year.
Joshua Humphrey, 35, and Larry Stiff, 32, are believed to be responsible for as many as 28 reported rapes, according to prosecutors. Humphrey would contact a woman through Tinder, Plenty of Fish and other websites and convinced her to meet at a local bar, where Stiff would be waiting to drug her drink.
The woman would feel dizzy and pass out, then the men would take her to Stiff's home, where they'd rape her. He brought Larry into the case later.
Both are serving sentences of up to 51 years in prison after being convicted of multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct. Companies who fail to conduct a background check or disclose information such as prior arrests can possibly be held liable for illegal acts committed through their platform, said Maureen Mapp, a lecturer at the University of Birmingham Law School in the United Kingdom.

At Wayne State University, none of the victims who were sexually assaulted after meeting people through online dating sites wanted to pursue charges, said Wayne State University Police Lt. David Scott. Scott added that he fears many other cases of sexual assault — especially ones involving online dating sites — go unreported because victims feel embarrassed. He urged students who are sexually assaulted to report it to police immediately. There are several online platforms currently available or in development that are intended to make dating safer and invoke conversation about sex.
We-Consent, an app developed by the Institute for the Study of Coherence and Emergence, allows users to document agreements for sexual acts through the app. We-Consent does not serve as a dating platform, as users do not meet new people through the app. Partner 1 is then required to videotape Partner 2 agreeing to engage in sexual relations.
The media is then double-encrypted and stored in a server. This app is geared toward abuse victims — through Guardrail, survivors have the ability to document a case of sexual assault or domestic violence. Once the app is opened, users are asked a series of questions regarding the nature of the incident they are reporting and their responses are video-recorded. The media is then double-encrypted similarly to We-Consent.
He added that it is not ideal to expect victims of sexual abuse to get in contact with police immediately after an incident, as many are going through severe stress and trauma. Lissack described Guardrail as a gatekeeper of allegations until the victim is ready to report it to police and the recordings are needed for legal purposes.
LegalFling — an app currently being developed by Netherlands-based LegalThings —which declined an interview request from the Free Press — allows users to consent to sex with other users with a single tap "in a legally binding agreement," according to its website.

However, Mapp, the University of Birmingham lecturer, said there are several factors which may diminish the legal validity of an agreement for sex through the Internet. Contact Omar Abdel-Baqui: or oabdelbaqu freepress.
