After torturing and nearly strangling to death one victim several years ago, the 21-year-old attempted murderer was finally sentenced to prison. Via CBS:

Chance Seneca, 21, was sentenced on Wednesday to 45 years after attempting to murder gay men he met on the dating app Grindr. The court said Seneca planned his hate crimes for many months and intentionally targeted gay men.

In June 2020, Seneca used Grindr to propose a meeting with a man he solicited on the app with the plan to murder and dismember him, according to a Justice Department news release. Seneca became obsessed with his murder-fantasy perhaps inspired by the notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, the release said; he planned to “eat and preserve his victims’ bodies,” just as Dahmer had done.


It’s a federal conviction and a federal prison, so he can’t be released early on parole. But, he’ll still be in his mid-60s when he’s released (assuming he’s still alive, and assuming the world still exists), and he could very easily attempt to kill again. Given what this psychopath did, life in prison would’ve been a more appropriate sentence.
