Adam Martin Carter-Campbell was recently charged in King County Superior Court for felony cyberstalking of a 22-year-old victim, court documents show. He is being held in King County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Carter-Campbell first contacted the victim over the matchmaking site this summer. According to court documents, Carter-Campbell messaged the victim, saying he wanted to date her. She said no and the contact stopped for a time, but later started up at an alarming rate. The victim told Carter-Campbell that she wanted to stop all communication, and he allegedly grew upset, stating he would kill himself if communication stopped.
The victim blocked Carter-Campbell, but he allegedly sent the her messages from another account, saying “You just gotta be nicer to me, that way I won’t have the inclination to go kill a bunch of people,” court documents show. He also said, “you gotta be friends with me, you don’t have a choice.”
Carter-Campbell allegedly referenced the victim’s place of employment, and said he planned to come in and ask her to “marry him.”
When police contacted Carter-Campbell, he allegedly admitted to sending the threatening messages, saying he did it for “shock value.” He also said he felt “entitled” to make the statements of a mass shooting because of the way the victim, other women and society had treated him, court documents allege.
Carter-Campbell was arrested on Sept. 26. Three computers were seized from his home as evidence.
