LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police are trying to identify a woman accused of using a stolen car to run over and kill a nail salon worker after failing to pay for a $35 manicure.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Larry Hadfield said Monday that police were searching for the woman and were investigating the crime as a murder.

Police say the woman got a manicure Saturday and went to the car after her credit card was declined, saying she would return to pay.

Lt. Ray Spencer says the manicurist went in front of the car to prevent it from driving away but was hit.

The woman drove away. The manicurist died at a hospital.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the manicurist as 51-year-old Ngoc Q. Nguyen of Garden Grove, Calif.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
