For her role in the deadly robbery of Adam Hilarie, Bustos was paid in cash, police said.
Hilarie had met Hailey Rose Bustos on Plenty Of Fish, which bills itself as the largest dating site in the world.
He'd picked her up and they went bowling in Winter Haven, Fla., at Cypress Lanes, which offers shoe and lane rentals for a quarter on Thursday nights, and specials on pizza and beer.
"Half of the profiles, they don't even put their real name," Jackson said.
"I see girls on there that their occupation is getting money.
Bustos, 18, brought three men with her to Hilarie's place, including two career criminals on probation for violent felonies. When Hilarie, 27, responded to the knock on the door, the men overpowered him and dashed inside, police said. "Hilarie was begging for his life, he was not putting up any kind of fight, and was telling them that he had a 5-year-old daughter," according to arrest reports obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
Hilarie was shot in the head and collapsed on the kitchen floor, Auburndale's Deputy Police Chief Andy Ray told The Post.

That’s exactly what happened in this case, when the 23-year-old victim invited 77-year-old Alan Richard Schmitt into her home.
I stay way away from them." Ray, the deputy chief, said it's unclear if Bustos used her real name.
At a news conference, he said he suspected she was experienced with the scheme.
But on the Internet all you need really is to be very skillful at presenting yourself as something that you aren't.
