He tried to kill, dismember gay man he met on Grindr before calling 911, feds say – The Charlotte Observer

A Louisiana man admitted to trying to kill and dismember a gay man he met on the gay dating website Grindr, according to the U.S. Attorney General.

It has been reported that Holden White was hospitalized with grievous wounds following his first date with Chance Seneca, who is now 21 years old.

Before the June 20, 2020 attack that nearly cost White his life, White had been interacting with Seneca for a month without noticing any red flags.

“He left the room in order to get something and then he returned. When he returned he walked up behind me and wrapped a cord around my neck,” stated White.

He choked White so hard that his blood vessels burst and he passed out.

“The next thing I recall was being in the bathtub with him slicing open my left wrist,” said White, who was also naked at the time.

As Seneca watched him, the man faded in and out of consciousness. He recalled being stabbed in the neck.

After falling into a coma, he awoke three days later in a hospital. According to the reports, Seneca called the police and informed them that he had killed a man. During the attack, White was stabbed six times in the neck and has nearly had both hands sawed off.

“Seneca acknowledged that he intended to murder and dismember H.W. in order to satisfy his homicidal urges, and that he intended to continue murdering until he was caught or killed,” read the Attorney General’s statement.

As part of a plea agreement, Seneca pled guilty to one count of kidnapping. As a result, he faces the possibility of life imprisonment when he is sentenced on January 25, 2023. There is also the possibility that he will be charged with a hate crime.

Seneca White stated that his life’s mission was to keep him behind bars so that he would not harm anyone else.
