Suspect charged with raping special needs woman he met on MeetMe


Police in Albuquerque believe they may have a serial rapist on their hands after arresting 32-year-old Eli Kronenaker. Kronenaker was recently arrested after allegedly raping a 21-year-old special needs woman that met on the MeetMe social networking website. As I’ve mentioned before MeetMe should be called MeatMe since it’s basically a glorified hook up site and app. The victim was said to have the functioning capability of an 11-year-old. Police believe that Kronenaker may be specifically targeting special needs individuals.

Police urge guardians and caretakers to talk to lower-functioning female adults.

“Check their phones, check their emails and talk to them,” said APD Officer Tanner Tixier.

If you think it’s possible you or someone you know was victimized by Kronenanker, report it to police through 505-242-COPS.

Kronenanker was said to have used the alias of ‘Jeff’ on MeetMe.
