Officers decided to try something different.
“I set up a profile and her name was Sasha,” Minton recalled.
He made Sasha’s “OkCupid” profile a perfect match for Covington.
“I’m looking to make the world a better place,” the profile read. “I like to work with animals. I’m really good at having a good time and getting people to trust me.”
And trust, it appears, Covington did. The Church Hill man writes in his profile to message him if you “want more than usual.” Sasha and Ryan messaged for about a week, in what became unusual.
