The tragic loss of Ingrid Lyne and a cautionary tale of online dating
The world of dating can be a treacherous thing to navigate. In recent years, online sites have popped up all over claiming the ability to connect you with your “Soulmate”, help you find “The One”, and guide you to your “Match”. There are sites for any type of person and relationship you could ever need. Even some you didn't know that you may want.
What these sites don’t tell you, and can’t tell you, is that people lie. People hide behind the anonymity of the internet. They portray themselves as an altered version of reality and the truth is forever lost on the millions of profiles searching for that elusive thing called love.
In the spring of April 2016, Seattle resident Ingrid Lyne was last seen on a date at a Mariners baseball game. She had met her date, John Charlton, online and the two had been casually seeing one another for about 2 months. After the night of April 8th, she was never seen again.
When evidence of her murder was found in several different recycling containers around the Seattle area and her car later found abandoned, authorities knew that the responsible person for this horrible crime was a danger to society.
Information about the man she was seeing was found by her mother, completely by chance while looking at phone records. The more investigators looked into John, the quicker he became the #1 suspect in her murder He was arrested and charged within days and would be convicted of 1st Degree Murder and Theft of a Vehicle in 2017.
