LAS VEGAS, NV. (THECOUNT) — Krystal Whipple, the woman wanted for running over and killing Las Vegas manicurist, Nhu “Annie” Nguyen, after allegedly skipping out on the bill at a nail salon last month, has been apprehended in Glendale, Arizona, officials said on Friday.

Whipple, 21, is accused of fatally striking and running over nail salon owner, Nhu “Annie” Nguyen, with her vehicle on Dec. 29, after a dispute over a $35 manicure payment went very wrong, according to police.


Las Vegas Metropolitan police said police located Whipple in Glendale, Arizona Friday morning.

The incident happened at the salon around 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 29 when Whipple tried paying for a $35 manicure, but her credit card was declined, according to police. Whipple reportedly told Nguyen she would get another method of payment from her car. When she got to her rental car, police said Whipple instead attempted to drive away from the salon. In surveillance video released by police, Nguyen and her partner were seen running out of the salon after the woman. source

Nguyen was seen running in front of Whipple’s vehicle before the suspect accelerates and runs over Nguyen, dragging her 50 feet before escaping the parking lot, police said.

It is unclear if Whipple will be returning to Las Vegas to face charges.

This is a developing story.
