Louisiana man, Chance Seneca, has been arrested and charged for using the dating app Grindr as a “hunting ground” to lure young gay men to his father’s home where he allegedly said he had planned to kill them and use their body parts as “trophies” and “food” reports The Daily Advertiser.
According to documents quoted by the newspaper, prosecutors allege Seneca lured Holden White of Kaplan, LA, who he met on Grindr, to his father’s home last year. Once there, prosecutors say, Seneca persuaded White to handcuff himself, and then pulled a gun on him.
He then allegedly took him to the bathroom, where prosecutors say he strangled White from behind until he passed out. He placed him in the bathtub and hacked White’s wrists with a knife. He stopped when he saw bone and freaked out.
Seneca then called police and allegedly tried to be admitted to a mental institution. White came to at one point, and Seneca allegedly said, “I’m setting you free.”
Officers arrived at the house and found a “bloody mess”.
White was taken to a hospital and Seneca was arrested. Seneca is facing state charges of attempted murder and a hate crime. Federally he is facing more; another hate crime charge, kidnapping charges and others.
If convicted, Seneca is facing 25 years prison time.
