May you Rest In Peace, Rebecca.

On July 18, 1989, Robert John Bardo, a 19-year old fan shot and killed actress Rebecca Schaeffer at her home in West Hollywood, before she died, Bardo stalked her for three years and wrote numerous letters to her, which one of them she answered to him. The main reason for why Bardo murdered Schaeffer, was very enraged by her sex scene with another actor in bed in the movie Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills, claiming that she "lost her innocence" and decided that Schaeffer deserved to be punished for becoming "another Hollywood whore". In the day of her murder, she was preparing for an audition for The Godfather: Part III and was expecting a script to be delivered, when she answered the doorbell, Bardo shot her in the chest with a gun in the doorway of her apartment building. Later, Bardo was arrested in Tucson, Arizona in the next day, after motorists reported a man running through traffic in Interstate 10, he later confessed to the crime.
