With Utah woman’s murder at hands of Tinder date comes a new reminder not to blame victims | #tinder | #pof

Victim advocates are concerned that many people are blaming a 25-year-old woman for her own murder.

Ashlyn Black was stabbed to death on Sunday by a man she met on Tinder, police have said. The suspect, 24-year-old Ethan Hunsaker, reportedly called and reported the murder himself at 3:20 a.m.

Black is the second young woman killed by a man she met through a dating app in the past year. The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition says when victims meet their perpetrator online, they are not the ones to blame for what happened to them.

Victim advocates want to make it clear that blame for Black’s murder should be placed on her killer, not her.

Jenn Oxborrow, the coalition’s executive director, told 2News she’s seen concerning comments on social media that, whether intentionally or not, cast blame for the attack on Black and not Hunsaker.

“It doesn’t matter what anyone chooses to do, they never deserve to be hurt or killed,” Oxborrow said.

She says women using dating apps is not the problem. In fact, it is the new cultural norm.

“This is something that’s a reality,” she said. “This is how people date, and Tinder is the most frequently-used app, that I’m aware of, in our culture right now.”

Oxborrow says this case highlights the real problem of violence perpetrated against women by men they know or trust.

“We need to remember that this was a choice to enact violence by the person who perpetrated the violence — and that’s where the responsibility lies.”
