Police have charged a motorist with murder for allegedly hitting a female fan as she was waiting outside a Southern California radio station to catch a glimpse of ‘N Sync singer Justin Timberlake.
The Associated Press reports that Cameron Albert Duty, 21, was booked Wednesday with one count of murdering Anne White, 21, while she was standing with a group of other fans on the sidewalk of Burbank-based station KIIS-FM Monday night.
Duty remains jailed on $1 million bail pending a Sept. 26 arraignment in Superior Court.
As authorities described the tragedy, White was pinned under Duty’s truck, which then went forward and dragged her about a block until he was stopped by police. Officers, who initially labeled the incident a hit-and-run, according to news reports, have said Duty didn’t know the woman and apparently did not intend to hit her.
Timberlake, 21, was at the station to promote his solo album, due out this fall. He debuted a single from it, “Like I Love You,” at the recent MTV Video Music Awards.
