Actor Extradited on Burglary, Attempted Murder Charges

Actor Extradited on Burglary, Attempted Murder Charges

( – California actor Nick Pasqual appeared in several movies, including “How I Met Your Mother,” “National Day Riff,” and “Rebel Moon.” Law enforcement officials recently extradited him from Texas to Los Angeles on charges of burglary and the attempted murder of his estranged girlfriend, makeup artist Allie Shehorn. On June 13, Pasqual pleaded not guilty to the charges.

A friend, Christine White, discovered Shehorn in the makeup artist’s Sunland home in Los Angeles around 4:30 a.m. on May 23. She had more than 20 stab wounds. White was staying with her when the attack occurred.

First responders transported the victim to a hospital, where she required three surgeries and spent time in the intensive care unit. Shehorn had obtained a restraining order against Pasqual on May 20.

On May 29, District Attorney George Gascón of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced he was charging Pasqual with attempted murder, injuring a spouse, cohabitant, fiancè, boyfriend, girlfriend, or child’s parent, and first-degree burglary with a person present.

A conviction on those charges could carry a life sentence in state prison.

Authorities allege that Pasqual fled to Texas after committing the crimes and tried to cross into Mexico at the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint, where Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers apprehended and held him.

After pleading not guilty, the court remanded Pasqual to custody without bail. It set his next hearing date as July 16.

Mutual friends said Pasqual and Shehorn met on a movie set where they worked together. However, in her filing for the restraining order, Shehorn painted a picture of an abusive relationship that she had exited and had no intention of renewing.

Friends started a GoFundMe campaign for Shehorn to help with medical bills and rehabilitation. In his statement, Gascón extended his sympathies to the victim and the support of the Bureau of Victim Services. He also vowed to hold the perpetrator accountable for the crime.

As of June 8, Shehorn remained hospitalized with unspecified complications, according to the GoFundMe site. Her friends described her as appreciative of the outpouring of love and support she had received but said she was struggling to remain positive in light of her health struggles.
