Oh that's rich. Match didn't set her up with the guy, she did that herself. Good Lord. People will try to get a buck anyway they can.

I read another news site's version of the story this morning. That one said he was surprised she was still alive as his intent had been to kill her.

No, I don't think that it's Match's fault this happened. Given he killed another ex, I think the outcome would have been the same no matter how she met him.

People have to know that there is inherent risk in meeting a stranger, and letting that person know where you live. Match.com makes no promises to screen the people who post or answer ads.

Creepy.

I agree. It's tragic but part of the risk we assume letting some people into our lives even briefly. In Most murders the victims knew their killer well. her meeting him in a bar, club or anywhere else would not discount the fact he was dangerous.

Creepy is right, and I agree with all that you've said.
