Man Charged with Killing Apparent Cross-Dressing Prostitute
MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office has charged a man with shooting and killing another man who, according to details in a criminal complaint, was a cross-dressing prostitute who had solicited the defendant and engaged in a struggle to take his gun.
Andrew Olaciregui, 27, faces a charge of first degree reckless homicide with use of a dangerous weapon in the murder of Dana Larkin.
Olaciregui could serve a sentence of up to 60 years in prison if he is convicted.
According to the criminal complaint:
Olaciregui told Milwaukee Police he had left his home and driven to the area of North 27th Street and West North Avenue early Friday morning with the intention to "pick up a prostitute."
Worried about the danger in the neighborhood, Olaciregui brought a gun with him.
The defendant said that someone who looked like a black female waved at him.
Olaciregui explained that he then picked up the victim up in his car, and they traveled to North 23rd Street just south of North Avenue. He parked his car there.
While inside the car, he allegedly gave Larkin money, and before the victim was to begin a sex act, Larkin reportedly asked Olaciregui a question to the effect of - as quoted in the criminal complaint - "Are you OK with men doing this?"
Olaciregui claimed in the criminal complaint that he said no to the victim, and that Larkin then repeatedly reached for the defendant's crotch.
Then, Olaciregui said he tried to grab his gun, but Larkin got into a struggle with him over the gun where Olaciregui said he was fearful for his life.
The defendant claimed that the victim bit him on the arm and each man had their hand on the gun during the struggle.
Both men left the car as the struggle continued, when according to the complaint, Larkin finally let go of the gun.
Then, believing Larkin was attempting to come at him, Olaciregui allegedly shot to the left and right side of Larkin.
The victim ran a short distance away, but stopped and turned around, according to Olaciregui's statement in the complaint "like he was going to do something."
At that point, Olaciregui said in the complaint that he fired a shot "toward the victim, but was not aiming."
He then left the scene and returned to find his cell phone, but found police tape around the scene.
Olaciregui then returned again but was stopped by police, where officers stopped him and saw the bite mark on the defendant's forearm.
