A Pennsylvania woman was stabbed to death by a man she met on Facebook while trying to buy a refrigerator for her boyfriend, authorities said.
Denise Williams, 54, suffered a “violent death” Monday when she went to check out the appliance put up for sale on Facebook Marketplace by a Geistown man, according to Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees.
“She did put up one heck of a fight,” Lees said at a press conference Wednesday. “This was a violent death that she sustained.”

Investigators said that Williams had arranged to meet at Gorgone’s apartment, with plans to buy his fridge as a gift for her boyfriend.
“She went there to look at the fridge and never came out, unfortunately,” District Attorney Greg Neugebauer told reporters.
Williams, who worked at a local hospital, was reported missing by her family on Monday night, officials said.
