Danger in internet dating
Patel was killed while her five-year-old son slept in the next room after the mother had invited the “lying and manipulative” man over on the night of October 7 2015 after meeting through the online dating agency, Oasis.
Before their meeting, Donnelly had bombarded the mother, who the Old Bailey heard was “desperate for a new relationship”, with sexually explicit messages before telling her: “I will treat you like a princess.” The pair drank alcohol on the night of the attack with them undressing before Donnelly, who has a history of violence when drunk or on drugs, killed his date by beating her ferociously about the head and strangling her.
