New Details Emerge in Death of Pleasant Plains Native in Dallas

Police in Dallas say a dental hygienist who previously dated the boyfriend of a Pleasant Plains native may be behind her death.

Kendra Hatcher was killed on September 2nd in the garage of an apartment complex in Dallas.

Authorities say the hygienist, who has not yet been identified, was implicated by the alleged getaway driver in the plot, 23-year-old Crystal Cortes. Cortes told police that the woman agreed to pay her $500 in exchange for Hatcher’s driver’s license.

The ex-girlfriend was arrested Saturday morning on an unrelated traffic charge, several hours after police obtained a search warrant for her apartment, but was released from jail later that night.

Cortes remains the only person formally charged in the case.
