Virginia Tech football player Isimemen Etute allegedly beat a man to death for catfishing him on Tinder.
The freshman linebacker reportedly told police that he went to the apartment to meet his Tinder match, and expected to meet a woman named “Angie”.
However, when he arrived, he met 40-year-old Jerry Smith instead.
According to police, Etute left the apartment, but then returned on May 31 and attacked the man.
Investigators say that Etute admitted to them that he punched the man in the face five times and then “stomped” him.
Investigators also said that Etute didn’t call the police even though he heard “bubbling and gurgling” coming from the victim. Police found Smith’s body a day later. An autopsy revealed that Smith died of blunt trauma and all the bones in his face were broken.
Etute was arrested on June 2 and was charged with second-degree murder.
At a hearing on Wednesday, Etute’s attorney said that the attack was more than just “more than someone just showing up to an apartment and punching someone.”
“I’m trying to stay strong for the people that support me, I feel like I’ve let a lot of people down … I’m truly sorry for my actions,” Etute told the court.
“Nobody deserves to die, but I don’t mind saying, don’t pretend you are something that you are not,” said his lawyer, Jimmy Turk, afterwards. “Don’t target or lure anyone under that perception. That’s just wrong.”
