She checked into a hostel, browsed a dating app and arranged to meet a man that night in central Auckland. During the date she was captured on CCTV in various city nightspots, drinking and kissing with a man about whom she messaged her friends: “I clicked with him so well.” They returned to his hotel where they had sex.
