Murdered Uber Driver Begged Passenger Not to Kill Her

(New York Post) A Pennsylvania Uber driver and mother of four begged a customer to spare her life before he allegedly shot and killed her during a robbery attempt, police said.

“I’m begging you, I have four kids,” 38-year-old Christi Spicuzza pleaded, according to dashcam video of the horrific crime, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Spicuzza, of Turtle Creek, was found dead with a single gunshot wound to the head in a wooded area on February 12 in Monroeville, according to the Allegheny County Police Department.

She had picked up 22-year-old Calvin Crew, of Penn Hills, around 9:15 p.m. on Feb. 10 when 10 minutes into the ride, he allegedly put a gun to the back of her head.

The video ends after the suspect grabbed the camera.

Crew was arrested on Thursday and was charged with criminal homicide, robbery and tampering with evidence.
