The Beverly Hills Police Department arrested three suspects early this morning in connection with yesterday's fatal stabbing in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood, according to LA Now. Though the suspects' names have not been released, authorities have identified the victim as Katsutoshi Takazato, 21, the occupant of the home in the 1800 block of Carla Ridge [map] that "is owned by filmmaker Fuminori Hayashida, who produced several low-budget movies in the late 1990s." Detectives have been working the case non-stop since the stabbing occurred, and are "still trying to determine the motive."
