Investigators Ask Tinder For Help In Australian Balcony Murder Case


Australian investigators are asking Tinder for help in prosecuting the suspect in the balcony murder case.

Gable Tostee, 28, met 26-year-old New Zealand tourist Warriena Wright on the dating app a few hours before she plunged to her death from the balcony of his 14th floor Surfer’s Paradise apartment.

And Australian detectives have asked Tinder to supply information about the 50 women Tostee contacted on the app.

The revelation comes from The Australian, who saw court documents asking the IAC-owned app for the content.

They are also seeking data from Wright’s account.

Sergeant Campbell said that police had conducted “extensive inquires” about Tostee’s contact with women on the dating app.

They are currently looking for statements from over 50 women both from Australia and overseas.

Wright died at around 2.20am, around two hours after she and Tostee had matched on dating app Tinder, and had been drinking in his apartment.

Tostee is currently on $200,000 bail, on conditions that he not drink alcohol or use Tinder or any other social media.
