Cal Acevedo is a character from "Hoodrats". He was the best friend and murderer of Nash Simpson.

A street kid and skateboarder hooked on drugs, Cal took Nash, a fellow skateboarder and runaway from Jersey, under his wing. They looked out for each other, with Nash going as far as to bail Cal out of trouble when he was caught shoplifting.

Their friendship crumbled when Cal found out Nash got a sponsorship. This led Cal to believe he was going to be abandoned. Cal was working on his own trick and recorded it. Nash ran into him practicing and tried to correct Cal's mistakes. Cal gave up, and Nash, still wanting to help, grabbed his board and did the trick perfectly. Cal, in a combination of hurt, jealousy and the influence of drugs, grabbed his own skateboard and slammed it against Nash's head, killing him instantly. Cal then dumped Nash's body in a fan and sold the video of him completing the trick to Nash's rival Grady Giles, presumably to score more drugs.

Cal is a construction worker in 2009 and has kicked his drug habit. It turned out that Grady left behind the incriminating tape with his ex-girlfriend, Vonda Martin. The cold case team believed that Grady killed Nash and stole his trick but Grady revealed that Cal sold him the tape. Cal was arrested for the murder after confessing.
