Ashley Ellerin - Former Ashton Kutcher Girlfriend Murder Cold Case Trail

Ashley Ellerin was a 22-year-old fashion student, model and Ashton Kutcher's girlfriend when she was brutally stabbed to death in her Hollywood Hills home in 2001.

On the night of her murder, Kutcher stopped by to pick Ellerin up for a post-Grammy Awards party, but she didn't answer the door.  The actor checked a back window and saw what he thought were red wine stains on the carpet and left. A friend discovered her body the next day.

Kutcher, who married actress Demi Moore in 2005, was never a suspect in the case.

In a new development in the unsolved murder, DNA evidence has linked Michael Thomas Gargiulo, a 32-year-old air conditioning repairman being held on suspicion of the murder of a Santa Monica woman in April.

Police said the DNA match also links Gargiulo to the fatal stabbing of a Monterey Park woman in 2005 and the 1993 killing of  high school classmate Tricia Pacaccio in the Chicago suburb of Glenview, where Gargiulo lived at the time.

Gargiulo was being held in lieu of $1.1 million bail on attempted murder and burglary charges stemming from the April 28 stabbing of a Santa Monica woman in her home. Detectives matched a DNA sample taken from blood at the crime scene to Gargiulo. Further database cross-referencing found that Gargiulio's DNA matched genetic evidence in the three killings.

Kutcher's agent, Stephanie Simon, said the actor had no comment.

    Hollywood thinks that ashton was too much of a coward to call the police and just left his murdered girl friend for someone else to find--he didn't help demi moore's career any by dumping his wife on their 6th anniversary--all in all,he is not a man of sentiment or honor.

    Doesn't sound clear to me. The story was told different in other news outlet. Ashton turned Ashley down earlier but then later called her several times, she didn't answer he then proceeded to drive to her place. When no one answered he looked through the window? and saw a red stain ,and thought of red wine. First of all, red wine will seep into the carpet you don't see that very much unless you are very close, must have been a lot of blood he could see from the window....and he left then? did not try to call her anymore and get an answer why she didn't answer? sorry doesn't make sense. Now the DNA is 100% to get these murders solved? hmmm what secret does Ashton carry around with him. He was young then. Probably crazy about her, and now he is with a woman hiding out for years that could be his mother or granny even.? That explains some things.

    What this article forgot to mention was that he knew she was mad at him. When he looked in the window he thought she spilled red wine and that's what was on the rug. He thought out of anger she smashed the bottle of wine. Also, she was stabbed 35 times & had been dead a few hours before he arrived. So even if he went in, she would have been dead.

    What's wrong with you people? The article is about how his girlfriend got stabbed by a serial killer and all you can go on about is how he looks with facial hair. Stupid people. How about a little sympathy. Poor guy- can't seem to catch a break. First her and now Britanny Murphy...

    So, Ashton saw red wine stains on the rug? Just think. If he had gotten into the apartment, he could have saved her life. But, no. Mr. Selfish was too concerned with himself to care about anyone else. Asshat.
