Nearby Sandy Springs: Man Killed in Dunwoody Contacted Via Backpage.com:

Suspect arrested in slaying of Atlanta drag queen:

Police in Dunwoody, Georgia have arrested 20-year-old Christopher Williams in the shooting death of 30-year-old Roberto Calderon-Guzman. Calderon-Guzman was known around some Atlanta circles as drag queen Noxy Cassandra Calderon. The article from GA Voice seems to insinuate that Calderon-Guzman was advertising on the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com as a transsexual sex worker.

Williams is accused of robbing another transsexual sex worker as well. Police say that Williams used the phone of the first victim to set up the meeting with Calderon-Guzman.

Police believe there may be other victims as well…

If you have any further information regarding this incident, please contact Detective Jesus Maldonado at (678)382-6925, or jesus.maldonado@dunwoodyga.gov

I’m not here to trash someone’s lifestyle choice but if you put yourself out there on Backpage for whatever reason you’re opening yourself up to predators and killers. And while Backpage may not have the number of killers that craigslist has racked up over the years they’re slowly starting to catch up.
