HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) — A documentary filmmaker interviewed three suspects two weeks before the trio allegedly fatally stabbed a woman on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Chadwick Davis was making a film about street life in Hollywood when he approached Dustin Kinner, Brian Widdows and Jason Wolstone for an interview.
The men agreed to be on camera without any sort of compensation, but the filmmaker did buy them food, according to Davis.
“They seemed cool. They signed my release forms,” Davis said.
The men were accused of murdering 23-year-old Christine Calderon on Tuesday in front of the Hollywood and Highland complex in Hollywood.
Calderon took still pictures on her cell phone of the suspects and their signs, but allegedly refused to give them a dollar for taking the photos, according to LAPD detectives.
All three of the transients were arrested and charged with murder.
They were being held in jail on $1 million bail each.
Davis never felt threaten and believes the men snapped under the pressure of living on the streets of Hollywood, the filmmaker told KTLA reporter Rick Chambers.
