Lowell police say the woman was visited three times between November 13 and December 8 by men responding to an Ashley Madison post directing them to her house. The victim said she not set up the page.

During the investigation, the victim told police she suspected it was Teresa Lynn Allen – a 46 year-old-woman from Grand Rapids – who had set up the fake account. After obtaining several search warrants, police tracked IP addresses back to Allen and another woman from Wyoming: Gwen Toni Eddy, 51.

Arrest warrants were issued against the suspects in early April. Both Allen and Eddy are being

charged with unlawful posting of a message.  Police say the victim was targeted because the two suspects believed she was having an affair with Allen’s husband.

Both suspects posted bond and are scheduled to show up at the 63rd District Court Friday.

Ashley Madison is an online-dating website whose target audience are married people seeking extramarital affairs.
