John Bardo shoots 23-year-old actress, Rebecca Schaeffer, at point-blank range when she opens the door to her apartment building . Bardo escapes down an alley, throwing his bloody yellow shirt on the roof of a dry cleaners. He then tosses a red paperback copy of the novel, "The Catcher in the Rye,” on the roof of a rehabilitation center - the same book John Lennon’s assassin, Mark David Chapman, carries to the scene of his horrific crime.
The following video is of the same route Bardo used to escape. He evades police until the following day when he is finally captured in Tucson, AZ.
