The suspect believed to have fatally run over a nail salon owner while attempting to leave the business without paying was identified by Las Vegas police on Thursday
Krystal Whipple, 21, was named as the suspected driver in the deadly incident that occurred at a nail salon on Saturday. It was revealed that after getting a manicure at the salon, a customer unsuccessfully tried to use a fraudulent credit card, Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Spencer said. After that didn’t work, the individual left the establishment, saying that she would get money from her car. “The salon owners noticed that the customer was starting to drive away and ran out to stop her,” Spencer said. That is when the manicurist was struck and killed.
Anyone who has information about the suspect’s location or details on the case is urged to reach out to the homicide section of the Las Vegas Police Department.
