Brian Betts, a middle school principal from Washington D.C, was murdered in 2010 after being scammed on a dating app. He was chatting with a man who agreed to meet up with him. Instead, four men showed up to Betts’ home to rob him and shoot him to death, according to the Washington Post. The four suspects, mostly teens, were charged with murder. Some were sent to prison. Others took plea deals.
O’Neil McGean left Mazatlan, Mexico to attend Betts’ funeral. Betts was his ex whom he dated for nearly a decade. McGean called him the love of his life. Years later they would reunite in death when McGean met the same fate as his former love. In 2016, McGean, 53, agreed to meet someone through a dating app. He went missing during the date. So did $16,000 from his bank accounts.
