DAILYKENN.com -- Olga Marie Calderon, 32, was fatally stabbed while working at a Walgreens store in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood.
Sincere Williams, 18, was charged after the crime.
Reports say Calderon was stocking shelves when the suspect allegedly entered the store, grabbed her "around the neck," and held her at knifepoint. Calderon was stabbed multiple times when she attempted to push her attacker away, reports say.
The crime is another example of contrast in cultures; one with a work ethic to earn a living contrasted with another that values a sense of entitlement.
According to gofundme.com, "Her entire existence revolved around her little family. If you ever had the privilege of knowing her or speaking with her, I know that she would have shared a story about her babies - her 11-year old daughter and 3-year old son. "
The crime occurred Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 9:30 a.m.
Area Five Cmdr. Eric Winstrom said Williams entered the Walgreens intending to rob the store at knifepoint. He approached Calderon, who was stocking shelves at the time, and grabbed her around the neck, Winstrom said.
It appeared that Calderon tried to push Williams away, and at that point, he began stabbing her multiple times, Winstrom said.
Police told CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey they are not aware of any prior interaction between Williams and Calderon.
“In this case, whatever set him off – whether it was the slight pushback or whatever it was – it just immediately turned from a robbery that quickly to a brutal killing,” Winstrom said.
