Christine Calderon, 23, was walking with a male co-worker down Hollywood’s star-lined “Walk of Fame” on Tuesday, June 18 when she was stabbed to death by three transients for taking a picture. The panhandlers were angered that Calderson took a cell phone photo of them without paying them. According to her co-worker, they were holding a cardboard sign soliciting money with a four-letter insult, which made her laugh, so she snapped a photo of it. It cost her her life. One of them stabbed her in the torso multiple times while the other two forcibly backed her against the wall after she refused to give them money.

Los Angeles police found her bleeding in front of the American Eagle Outfitters around 8:30 p.m. It’s where she collapsed after running away. She was to rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center but died during surgery around 11.40pm.

Two men were detained near the crime scene at midnight and a third man was arrested hours later on suspicion of murder. According to police, the men are believed to be between 27 and 34 years old, as transients and said one of them was known to frequent the Hollywood area. The others are believed to be from out of state.
