Holland man suspected of using MySpace to lure teen:

So this guy, 22-year-old Edward Lara-Gutierrez from Holland, MI, travels to Tempe, AZ to have sex with a 16-year-old boy he met on MySpace. Unfortunately it was not one of those Dateline NBC moments.

Once Lara-Gutierrez arrived in Arizona, he met the victim’s parents. He told them they would be hanging out at a friend’s house for the weekend. Police said he and the victim instead went to a Tempe hotel, where they had sexual contact.

The Victim called his parents from the hotel on Saturday and told them what happened.
The parents then called the police, Horn said. The case is still under investigation, he said.

He lied to the parents about his age and I’m guessing a few other things.
