In a tragic twist of events, Tonantzyn Oris Beltran, a 28-year-old Californian escort, found herself thrust into the public eye after a police chase led to the impoundment of her car.
Accompanied by her mother, Olivia Lucia Beltran Pacheco, Beltran visited a Santa Rosa police station to reclaim the vehicle, where officers raised concerns about her mental stability.
Despite these concerns, she was allowed to leave. In the ensuing hours, Beltran’s mental health further deteriorated, as evidenced by a disturbing video she shared on social media, wielding an open pocket kn!fe.
This unsettling act foreshadowed a violent inc!dent that unfolded when police responded to a call and found Beltran still holding the kn!fe. Regrettably, Olivia Lucia Beltran Pacheco succumbed to her injuries at a local hospital.
Facing a murder charge, Beltran is currently held without bail at the Marin County ja!l.
The aftermath prompted investigators to collaborate with Meta, Facebook’s parent company, to remove the live-streamed video, sparking discussions about responsible social media use and the role of tech companies in preventing misuse.
The victim, Olivia Lucia Beltran Pacheco, a 55-year-old community activist dedicated to aiding migrants, leaves behind a significant void in the community. Her sudden, violent death has elicited shock and grief, especially from those who knew her well.
Dario D’Arrigo, a longtime friend and host of the Spanish-language TV show “Encuentro Latino,” expressed deep sorrow, emphasizing that in her final moments, Pacheco passed away loving her daughters.
