Man Charged With Fatally Stabbing Online Chat Buddy

Police say they have arrested a man suspected of fatally stabbing his AOL chat buddy after she refused to meet him again in person after an initial encounter.

Police say 23-year-old Nimzay Aponte was killed in a Bronx park Tuesday as she sat with a friend. She told police before she died that "Mike" did it, referring to a person she met on AOL's instant messaging service.

Police say the two met once and then she rebuffed him but he tracked her down and stabbed her. Her 25-year-old male companion was also stabbed in the arm and was in stable condition.

Police say 35-year-old Dennis Raymond was arrested on charges of second-degree murder and that he was known as "Mike" online. No one answered the phone at the address provided by police.

    Will the NY AG blame AOL like SC AG blamed Craigslist for the online date murder. The people who commit these crimes are the ones to blame.
