A beautician who ran a salon in West Hollywood, and had a list of clients that included Nicki Minaj and Alicia Silverstone, allegedly asked a white supremacist group to murder a business rival.Detective Steven McCauley of the Sheriff's Department testified today in court that one of the men that Dawn DaLuise had contacted said that she wanted to hire a white supremacist group to kill her beautician rival Gabriel Suarez. DaLuise was arrested back in March and on trial for solicitation of murder. The detective testified that she specifically sought white supremacists because Suarez was a "double minority, Mexican gay," according to KTLA.

Suarez had just opened a beauty salon in the same WeHo complex as DaLuise. She also suspected Suarez was cyberstalking her. The detective testified that witnesses he interviewed claimed that DaLuise offered free services at her salon for harassing Suarez.

"It's just really scary... the hate that this person could have to do this toward somebody," Suarez told KTLA outside of the courtroom.
