Family urges hit & run suspect to surrender

Crime

As the search intensifies for the suspect in the hit-and-run homicide that left a Las Vegas nail technician dead, more family members are coming forward to urge the suspect to turn herself in.

 Surveillance video from the December 29th hit-and-run shows a woman, who police identified as Krystal Whipple, run over and kill nail technician Nhu Ngoc “Annie” Nguyen. Beforehand, police say Whipple tried to pay for a $35 manicure with a stolen credit card which was denied, so she took off without paying.

 “She needs to turn herself in and come clean. She can’t run forever,” Krystalyn Harrison said. “Turn yourself in, and give this family closure.”

 Harrison is Whipple’s cousin. She joins the list of family members who are publicly speaking out against Whipple, urging her to turn herself in.

 “It’s $35, and you’re going to take somebody’s life? I can’t imagine what that family is going through,” Harrison said. “It’s heartbreaking. My heart goes out to them.”
