A Utah man is accused of fatally stabbing a woman hours after they went on their first date, via the meet-up app Tinder, in an “unprovoked” attack, authorities said Sunday.
The man, Ethan Hunsaker, 24, has been cooperative with investigators in explaining how he killed the 25-year-old victim, police in Layton, Utah, said.
The two met through Tinder and went on their date late Saturday at a bar before they went back to his home near 1300 N. Reid Ave., about 25 miles north of downtown Salt Lake City, police said
Hunsaker called 911 at about 3:19 a.m. and police found the woman, who had “sustained multiple stab wounds to the torso,” according to a police statement.
“Despite efforts to revive the victim, she was pronounced deceased on scene,” police wrote.
“The motive behind this homicide is under further investigation; however, the attack appears to have been unprovoked,” according to the police statement.
