There was no reason for Adam Hilarie to believe anything but the obvious: He had just been on a promising first date with a pretty girl.Hilarie had met Hailey Rose Bustos on Plenty Of Fish, which bills itself as the largest dating site in the world.He'd picked her up and they went bowling in Winter Haven, Fla., at Cypress Lanes, which offers shoe and lane rentals for a quarter on Thursday nights, and specials on pizza and beer.
The next night, her real intentions became clear, police told The Washington Post.
Bustos, 18, brought three men with her to Hilarie's place, including two career criminals on probation for violent felonies. When Hilarie, 27, responded to the knock on the door, the men overpowered him and dashed inside, police said. "Hilarie was begging for his life, he was not putting up any kind of fight, and was telling them that he had a 5-year-old daughter," according to arrest reports obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
Hilarie was shot in the head and collapsed on the kitchen floor, Auburndale's Deputy Police Chief Andy Ray told The Post.
As Hilarie bled out, Ray said, the suspects went downstairs, pulled their car to the front of the apartment and began stealing the dead man's Xbox, i Phone and TVs -- valuables Bustos had spotted the night before.
"I see girls on there that their occupation is getting money.
I stay way away from them." Ray, the deputy chief, said it's unclear if Bustos used her real name.
At a news conference, he said he suspected she was experienced with the scheme.
"Her comfort with the way this went, didn't seem like it was her first time," he said.
A witness told investigators that Bustos had been involved in at least one similar robbery before, Ray told The Post.
