WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- The police arrest a man on suspicion of first-degree murder after the suspect stabbed his Tinder date.
- The victim was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple stab wounds on the torso.
- The police filed first-degree murder against the suspect, now at the Davis County Jail awaiting a court appearance.
The police arrested a man on suspicion of first-degree murder after the suspect reported himself to the authorities.
The Layton Police Department arrested Ethan Hunsaker on suspicion of murder. Per the police report, the suspect called the incident in after 3 AM Sunday, telling the dispatcher that he murdered his Tinder date, hours after the two connected through the dating app.
“Hunsaker stated to dispatch he ‘did not know’ the person he had just killed, but had met the victim on an application called Tinder,” the police told Deseret News.
The police officers dispatched to North Reid Avenue following the 911 call found the victim inside her house with multiple stab wounds on her torso. The suspect strangled the victim for about a minute, but then walked to the kitchen to grab a knife after the victim resisted. The department made no mention of the name of the victim.
The suspect’s confession is consistent with physical evidence, marks on the arms, neck, and shoulder of the suspect, submitted to the court.
The responding police officers report that the suspect repeatedly said that the police should shoot him, the outlet reported. The first responders attempted to resuscitate the victim but she was later pronounced dead at the scene from the injuries she sustained, the police said.
“The motive behind this homicide is under further investigation,” the police department said. “However, the attack appears to have been unprovoked.”
The Layton Police Department booked Ethan Hunsaker on suspicion of first-degree murder. The suspect is at the Davis County Jail awaiting a court appearance.
