Is online dating more dangerous
We had a butterfly theme as they were Sharon's favourite – delicate and beautiful, just like her."The trial at Liverpool Crown Court heard how the couple had been rowing over what to watch on TV.
An alcoholic, Hawke had drunk 15 pints of lager and a bottle of vodka. Apparently Sharon had begged for her life and held her hands up to protect herself.
He said: "I used to check up on her all the time, I was incredibly protective."One day when I was taking her over some shopping, I noticed she was looking brighter, and she told me she'd met someone online."She showed me their messages to one another and I was horrified.
"She continued her relationship with that monster," her devastated brother said.
Safe Wise and Highspeed say of 56 cities surveyed, Miami (46), Jacksonville (39), Orlando (53) and Tampa (36) all ranked among the most dangerous.
“We’ve seen several cases in recent history where somebody just wasn't careful enough,” said Tampa Police Department spokesman Steve Hegarty.
She said that chatting to men online made her feel good about herself."She got frustrated by my disapproval, so I dropped the subject.
I just begged her to meet these dates in busy places."But Sharon began inviting strange men back to her house for dates and eventually met Hawke, who moved in immediately.
Just three days later, on July 13, 2014, police found her dead in her flat in Liverpool.
