A teacher in Staten Island, New York convicted of killing his wife and then went on to celebrate by having sex with a hooker is available and back on the dating scene.

Jonathan Crupi, is serving 25-to-life in prison after he was convicted of pushing his wife, Simeonette Mapes, down a stairwell before fatally stabbing her 15 times in their new Staten Island home.

The 34-year-old former teacher turned lady-killer hasn’t let his current living conditions at the infamous Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, located in upstate New York, cramp his style with women was he takes a stab with online dating.

According to the New York Post, Crupi created a profile on ConPals.com, where he wrote, “Hey ladies, are you awesome? Like I am? I’m looking for someone who is fun, an intelligent girl to stimulate my brain (and possibly my heart).”

Crupi then boasted on the inmate-based dating site, “I’m not married and I don’t have any kids. No baby-mama drama here!”

“Being in prison sucks, I’m an innocent man working on my appeal. Patience is a virtue, and I’ve learned a lot of it here. For now, I just want to find an interesting girl to share experiences with,” he wrote in the post.

“I’m looking for the ideal woman who is happy being single, but at the same time open to the possibility of a relationship with the right person. Skin color, creed, race doesn’t matter; it is ok with me.

Crupi added in his post, “Seriously, whether you are short, tall, blonde or brunette, rude or tattooed, shy and a prude, I’m open minded, it doesn’s matter, and I hope you are too. So take a chance and write to me soon!”

However, the cold-blooded stud’s prowl for women has left the family of Mapes’ in a fit of outrage.

“It’s truly a slap in the face and a personal attack,” the victim’s mother Theresa Mapes said to The Post.

“He killed my daughter,” the mother fumed, “Prisoners convicted of murdering a spouse shouldn’t be allowed on dating sites. This man is convicted of brutally killing his wife. And now he’s looking for another victim.”


“The part of the post that really stung the most was about him not being married,” Mapes added.

Crupi also shows a conceited side in his profile, where he claims to be good looking, a good cook and a dog lover.

“I’m 34 years old, Italian and Puerto Rican, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I’m a bit of a nerd, but that’s cool now, right? I’ve been told that I’m really funny, adventurous, and down to earth. Oh, and that I’m handsome, too lol,” Crupi bragged.

“I like to read books and watch movies, I love to laugh, and I listen to all kinds of music. I also like to dance and cook, but not together. That’s messy lol. I’m a dog lover too. There’s nothing like a furry best friend by your side, right?” he wrote.

Mapes is now lobbying the website to remove the post.

“Any women thinking about dating him; It will be the biggest regret of your life,” she said.

Mario Gallucci, Cruppi’s attorney, maintains that his client is using the site just to pass the time.

“I understand and recognize why the victim’s parents are upset, but I also get why someone spending the rest of his life in prison would want someone to write him,” Gallucci said.
