'Dates From Hell': Aspiring Serial Killer Poses As Woman To Stalk Prey Via Online Dating

There cannot be enough warnings about being careful with Internet dating. Never going on a first date alone with someone you've met online, and other tips like that are good advice. But there's another important lesson in the Internet dating story gone horrible wrong on this week's "Dates From Hell" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on ID).

Gilles Tetreault found what he thought was a great match online. But when he went to meet the woman for their first date, things took a horrific and surprising turn. There was no woman at all. Instead, he was met by a male attacker with a hockey mask, who tried to attack him in his garage.

Gilles struggled and ultimately managed to escape, but he was too ashamed about being duped to come forward. It wasn't until another man was murdered and a hockey mask was recovered at the scene that Gilles talked to the police. With his help, they were able to capture the man who reportedly had aspirations of being a serial killer.

Had Gilles not heard about the murder, he might have never come forward and more people could have been killed. Thank goodness he swallowed his embarrassment and did the right thing.
