According to law enforcement Jeremy Dewitte married Rania Abdelrahman, an Egyptian immigrant who was five years older than her husband, 15 years ago in 2005. It should be noted Jeremy was also charged with Lewd or Lascivious Battery on a minor in January of 2005. Rania Dewitte used her maiden name until 2009.
In court documents there are statements made by witnesses that suggest despite finding the Muslim bride he always wanted Jeremy wasn’t fulfilled in his marriage.
The witnesses state Jeremy Dewitte had been cheating on his wife for years and his favorite way of finding other women was through dating applications and websites. Ashley Madison was one of those sites.
The Ashley Madison Agency is an online dating service founded in Canada in 2002. The slogan of the company is, “Life is short. Have an affair.” It was very clear what the online experience offered. It was used for those who were married or in a relationship to meet and have fun on the side.
The company was hacked on July 15, 2015 and all of the client information including emails, names, home addresses and credit card information was released.
This didn’t appear to have an effect on Jeremy Dewitte because on March 4, 2018 while using the pseudonym “sfops2015” he contacted a woman who caught his attention.
SFOPS2015 was later revealed to mean Special Forces Operations. It isn’t clear if 2015 was the year Jeremy Dewitte created the username.
He sent the woman a wink and a message, something he stated he normally didn’t do. The woman ignored his messages but not to be deterred Jeremy Dewitte contacted her again on March 15, 2018 and asked for access to her private photos on the app.
On March 21, 2018 the woman, whose name was Jennifer, responded to Jeremy Dewitte’s messages. She apologized for not getting back to him and she stated she liked his previous message.
The two went on to exchange a few more messages where Jeremy made it clear he didn’t want a woman who only wanted money from him or a woman who wasn’t exotic.
He told Jennifer he had just returned to Orlando from a business trip in North Carolina. He didn’t get into the specifics of what the business trip was for.
Jeremy Dewitte suggested the conversation should continue on another messaging app called Kik. Jennifer gave him her Kik username and after mutually marking each other as Favorites, they continued to speak on Kik messenger.
These messages would later be added to court documents as time went on and the girl from Ashley Madison learned more about Jeremy Dewitte.
