Woman Killed On Hollywood ‘Walk Of Fame’ Over $1 Argument! | RedCowHills

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) – Three transients were charged Thursday in the stabbing death of a woman who took their picture on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dustin James Kinnear, 26, was charged with murder; Jason Joel Wolstone, 33, was charged with assault by means likely to produce bodily injury and two counts of accessory after the fact; and Brian Joseph Widdows, 34, was also charged with two counts of accessory after the fact. The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday outside the American Eagle store at the Hollywood and Highland complex, police said. The victim, 23-year-old Christine Calderon, of Lynwood, was walking with a male co-worker, just steps from the Walk of Fame. They came upon the group of transients, who were displaying signs asking for money with four-letter insults and a smiley face. Calderon apparently found the signs amusing, and took out her cell phone to snap a photo. Moments later, one of the men demanded that she pay a dollar for the picture, law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times. When she refused, two of the men allegedly pinned her co-worker against a wall. The third man allegedly jumped on Calderon and knocked her to the pavement. When she got up, she was bleeding from a stab wound to her mid-section, witnesses said. One street vendor who did not want to be identified said bystanders pressed their hands against the wound, trying to stop the bleeding. “She was wearing jeans and I think it was a white tank top and it was covered in blood,” the vendor said. Calderon was rushed the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she died a few hours later. Police detained two men near the crime scene at midnight, and a third man was arrested hours later on suspicion of murder.
