Crazed US YouTube bodybuilder, 25, repeatedly stabs and seriously injures 24-year-old woman he met on Tinder, then DIES after police respond and Taser him six times (5 Pics)

A 25-year-old YouTube bodybuilder from Massachusetts died late Thursday after he was tased by police who found him violently stabbing a woman he met on Tinder at his mom's home.
Cohasset police arrived to Erich Stelzer's residence around 10pm when they said he repeatedly slashed his date, newly identified by her family as 24-year-old veterinary assistant Maegan Tapley, in the face with a knife.
District Attorney spokesperson Peggie Krippendorf said in a statement: 'In an effort to rescue the victim and disarm Stelzer, Cohasset police officers used Tasers to subdue Stelzer.'  
Stelzer became unresponsive soon after the tasing, and stopped breathing while being transported to the hospital.

The victim, meanwhile, was treated for severe injuries. Police said she will likely lose her eye. 
Tapley's mother, Susan Tapley, said in a statement seen on NBC Boston that her daughter will recover from the traumatic attack.
'She's going to mend, she's going to be alright.. it's going to take time to recover. She'll need plastic surgery and an eye specialist,' she said.
A source told WBZ-TV that Stelzer was in an 'altered mental state' or suffering a 'possible mental health issue' at the time of the domestic violence incident.
His neighbor, Fred Siegel, told the local station: 'It’s unfortunate you never want to see anybody get hurt and you certainly don’t want to see someone die over something.  
'It’s unfortunate that it happened and who knows why it happened.'
It's currently unclear what transpired between the two before the brutal slashing that occurred just two days after Christmas.
The pair recently linked up on the popular hook-up dating app, Tinder. The man is estimated to be 6'8" and nearly 300lbs. The girl appears petite.
The District Attorney's office has not given word on a possible motive for the stabbing.
Further investigation is now underway.
