Las Vegas Police Identify Suspect Who Allegedly Killed Mother of Three Over $35 Manicure

Las Vegas police identified the woman accused of killing a nail salon owner after failing to pay for a $35 manicure, PEOPLE confirms.

Police say they are looking for 21-year-old Krystal Whipple in the death of 53-year-old “Annie” Nhu Nguyen, who was run over and killed Dec. 29 as she was trying to stop Whipple from leaving the parking lot of her business, Crystal Nails & Spa, about 40 blocks from the Las Vegas Strip.

“We are asking the public’s help if they have knowledge of where this person is to contact the homicide section,” Officer Larry Hadfield tells PEOPLE on Thursday.

Police say Whipple stopped by the salon to get a manicure around 3:45 p.m. Saturday. She allegedly attempted to pay with a fraudulent credit card. When the credit card payment didn’t go through she allegedly said she would get cash from her black 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, but instead started to drive away.
