Police in Rapid Springs, Michigan, have released information hoping to alert potential victims of a serial philanderer who deliberately had unprotected sex with thousands of people, in an effort to spread HIV. David Dean Smith, 51, turned himself in to Michigan police last week, confessing that he hoped to spread his infection to others.
According to the Daily Mail
a detective working on the case said of Smith "He says he intentionally attempted to spread the disease to kill people. His latest fantasy is strangling a woman and having sex with her dead body." Smith has allegedly slept with over 3,000 men and women over the last few years.
Thus far police have identified two victims and charged Smith "with two counts of AIDS-sexual penetration with an uninformed partner." (Global Grind
) One of the identified victims has disclosed that she has contracted HIV and believes it was from Smith. She said he spoke of his sexual past, claiming thousands of encounters, saying "He hits drifters. He hits people who are young. He hits young women, and from what I understand, he hits men, too."
