This A list mostly television actor is getting a lot of help from the media when describing his past relationship with a woman that ended very badly.
Apparently now she was a friend or someone he just met or a bunch of other things rather than the truth.
Ashton Kutcher Thought Date’s Blood Marks Were Red Wine Stains in Alleged ‘Hollywood Ripper’ Trial
When Ashton Kutcher arrived at the home of his date on Feb. 21, 2001, he was more than two hours late.
Then just 23, Kutcher had planned to meet Ashley Ellerin for dinner and drinks at 8 p.m. — but he got sidetracked watching the Grammy Awards with friends at actress Kristy Swanson‘s house.
The date never happened because Ellerin was brutally murdered that night. Prosecutors say that suspected serial killer Michael Gargiulo was the young woman’s killer.
Kutcher took the stand on Wednesday in Los Angeles to recount the fateful night — and he describes arriving at Ellerin’s house between 10:30 and 10:45 p.m. He knocked on the door, and no one answered. There were lights on, so he tried the door. It was locked.
“I assumed she had left for the night and I was late and she was upset,” he testified. “I just assumed she had gone out with her friend and bailed.”
Before he left, Kutcher — who at the time was in the middle of his successful run on That 70s Show — peeked in a window of Ellerin’s home.
“I saw what I thought was red wine spilled on the carpet,” he testified in court on Wednesday. “But that wasn’t alarming because I went to her house party [days before] and it was like a college party. I didn’t think much about it.”- Source
