People reports Las Vegas Police are on the lookout for 21-year-old Krystal Whipple for the death of Annie” Nhu Nguyen, 53.

Whipple is accused of running out of the salon when her credit card charge was denied. Nguyen ran after her, trying to stop her vehicle as she drove away.

Witnesses say Whipple dragged Nguyen before she fell onto the street and later died.

Police released surveillance video of what happened. It can be seen in the report from KTNV below.

Police found the Camaro the suspect drove off with in a nearby apartment complex, according to People. The person who rented that vehicle is not a suspect.

“It is totally unrelated,” says Officer Larry Hadfield . “How [Whipple] came to have the car is part of the investigation but she is no relation to the person who was on the rental agreement.”
