Authorities: Man Dead After Online Date Led to Robbery

AUBURNDALE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a central Florida man is dead after a woman he met through online dating set him up to be robbed.

Local news outlets report that 27-year-old Adam Hilarie was found dead last week at his Auburndale home.

Police say Hilarie went on a date last Thursday with 18-year-old Hailey Bustos after the two met on the dating site PlentyOfFish. Hilarie brought the woman back to his apartment that night, but police say she returned the next evening with three other men to steal electronics. Detectives say someone shot Hilarie in the head.

Records show Bustos, 26-year-old Andre Warner, 31-year-old Gary Gray and 26-year-old Joshua Ellington each face murder and robbery charges. Jail records didn’t list attorneys for them.
