Hunt continues for driver who allegedly killed a woman over $35 manicure

Police are now searching for a Las Vegas woman accused of fatally striking a nail salon employee with her auto after running away from a $35 bill.

Las Vegas Police are searching for Krystal Whipple, 21, who allegedly left a nail salon without paying and ran over the owner with her vehicle on Dec.29, 2018. "You can not run. You have to come forward, baby".

According to police, Whipple entered the salon in the afternoon of 29 December and received a $35 manicure, however when her credit card was declined she asked if she could retrieve some cash from her vehicle. Whipple allegedly was trying to escape after her debit card was declined for her $35 manicure.

When her credit card was declined, she went to her vehicle, allegedly to get cash, and then suddenly took off. Salon owner Ngoc Q. Nguyen and her husband came running after her. Nguyen spotted Whipple attempting to flee and placed herself in front of the auto to stop her. Whipple, instead, allegedly struck Nguyen as she sped away.

It was later revealed that the auto she used to flee the scene was stolen from a rental agency three weeks ago.

"My wife ran out and tried to stop her, and then she rolled forward", Sonny Chung, Nguyen's partner and the store's co-manager, was quoted as saying. The image is from a Whipple's previous conviction for attempted possession of a stolen vehicle.

"It is important that we get this suspect into custody as the victim's family and this community deserve to have her answer for this terrible crime", Spencer said. Whipple remains at large and is now being hunted by Las Vegas Police, who have since discovered the abandoned vehicle. "It's very traumatizing." A GoFundMe page already has raised over $30,000 for Nguyen's family to pay for her funeral expenses.

"We are going to put an extraordinary amount of resources into this to make sure that the person, the outstanding suspect, is held accountable for it", Las Vegas Police Lieutenant Ray Spencer said. "Our mom was really loved by the community here", her daughter Anne Trinh told ABC News.

Nguyen's daughters, who also appeared on the program, described her as a hard-working single parent who worked 12-14 hour days, seven days a week, to send her daughters to college and support the family's other needs. "It is important that we get this suspect into custody as the victim's family and this community deserve to have her answer for this terrible crime".
