    Ex-Girlfriend May Be Linked to Uptown Murder Plot: Police
    By Scott Gordon
    NBC-DFW

    [...]
    Cortes claims she thought it was just a robbery and drove an unidentified man to Hatcher's apartment that night. She also said the man she drove is the shooter and took several items from Hatcher.

    With these revelations, there could be two more people involved in the murder who have not been arrested – the ex-girlfriend and the mysterious man who Cortes claims killed Hatcher.

    Police say they have confirmed parts of Cortes' story by looking at surveillance video and talking to witnesses.

    Brother: Crystal Cortes 'taking the fall' for doctor's murder
    Rebecca Lopez, WFAA
    5:30 p.m. CDT September 9, 2015

    [...]
    But Cortes' brother says his sister was talked into doing this by one of her girlfriends.

    "Basically right now, my sister is kind of taking the fall for it," Angel Fuentes said.

    "Crystal was telling me that her friend just got out of a bad relationship," Fuentes said.
    The article goes on to say that according to Cortes' brother, the two women were very close. The ex-gf gave his sister gifts and even offered to buy her a car.

    The ex-gf's name is still being withheld, and police say they cannot comment on her or the search warrants.

    “Kendra had so much to give, and we are so thankful her 35 years were lived to the fullest,” her family said. “We will miss Kendra tremendously, especially her laugh and smiles. “But we cannot fully mourn and celebrate her life until the authorities apprehend the person(s) responsible for committing this senseless act.”

    Ashford said after meeting with Cortes that his client’s “connection with the ex-girlfriend is not very strong and I don’t think she has much connection with anybody else involved.”

    “She’s really only known her a relatively short period of time and I don’t think she had any idea the nature of the (ex-girlfriend’s) relationship with the guy,” he said.

    “She had no idea that it was going to hit this level,” Ashford said.
    Ashford said Cortes “is trying to work with the police so that they can get everybody else who was involved arrested.”

    Family, friends wait for answers in dentist’s Uptown slaying
    By TRISTAN HALLMAN AND NAOMI MARTIN
    Published: 09 September 2015 11:00 PM - Updated: 10 September 2015 06:57 AM

    Dentist Kendra Hatcher was “on cloud nine” because of her new relationship with a doctor, a friend said Wednesday.

    “It was a very happy time for her,” said Elene Velasquez, Hatcher’s friend and yoga instructor. “We were all happy for her. It was something she deserved.”

    But police believe that new relationship might have cost Hatcher her life last week in her Uptown apartment garage.

    [...]
    The ex-girlfriend had previously posted of her love for Paniagua. In April 2013, she wrote a Facebook birthday message “to the most amazing & smartest man I know.” She called “Ricky” her best friend and said that she could not “imagine life without” him.

    Paniagua could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

    The ex-girlfriend also could not be reached. Her job is unclear, but she posted in the past offering free teeth-cleaning services to her friends. State records show the woman is not a licensed dentist or dental hygienist.

    'Kendra Had So Much To Give' Says Family of Dallas Dentist Murdered in Apartment Parking Garage
    By Caitlin Keating @caitkeating
    09/10/2015 AT 12:55 PM EDT

    "Two of her passions were children and serving others," Hatcher's family writes in a statement to PEOPLE. "She helped so many people here and around the world, from building houses in Florida to providing medical care to children in Ecuador. We are very proud of all her amazing work, and it is our hope that justice will be served."

    According to her family, Hatcher was an intelligent, hardworking and fun-loving daughter, sister and aunt.

    Hatcher, originally from Central Illinois, wasn't just beautiful on the outside, her family writes: "Beauty also flowed from Kendra's heart," reads the statement.
    Slain dentist’s ex-husband saddened by Kendra Hatcher’s death in Uptown
    Tristan Hallman The Dallas Morning News
    Published: September 10, 2015 1:23 pm

    Fisk is an anesthesiologist, and went to DePauw University with Hatcher, who was slain last week in Uptown.
    Here is what Fisk had to say, remembering their time together and apart:

    Kendra and I spent our formative college and post-graduate years together….we had climbed mountains, dreamed dreams, rafted frigid rivers, studied languages, explored exotic countries, got married! …we had lived, loved and laughed. We shared many adventures, and at one time set off to build a life together. And yet I hadn’t been in touch with Kendra for some time.

    [...]
    I knew her to be full of love and compassion for others. Also, I knew her to be very resilient, and very determined in her goals. She possessed and cultivated an inner strength and self-reliance, but underneath she had a delicate and tender heart. I think perhaps it was this that drew people near to her and is what I loved in her.

    [...]
    He also wrote again about two hours later and added this:
    Kendra, or “Kendra Kay, KK, or Candy Cane” or “sweetie,”…. she loved Chocolate con churros, she had a beautiful singing voice but was sometimes bashful to use it, she loved Snoopy and called him noop noop, she loved giving and receiving gifts, she loved Christmas and her favorite Christmas song was oh holy night...

    Man’s ex-girlfriend was jealous before dentist’s killing in Uptown, friend says

    “She took it to heart because when he went there [previously], his parents bought his flight and not hers, so she couldn’t go,” said the former classmate, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he fears retaliation from the woman. The classmate said the woman’s reaction was “like, ‘Why is Ricky taking this girl he just met when I couldn’t go?’”

    Hatcher, 35, was shot to death Sept. 2 in an ambush in the garage of her Uptown apartment tower. Police believe Paniagua’s ex tracked Hatcher’s movements on her iPhone before the slaying, and they believe she was involved in the attack, search warrant affidavits show. The Dallas Morning News is not naming her because she has not been arrested or formally named as a suspect. The woman, who is scheduled to take her dental hygiene license board exams on Saturday, did not respond to calls and messages seeking comment Thursday.

    Paniagua also could not be reached for comment.
    EXCLUSIVE: Mother of hygienist at center of deadly love triangle says her daughter is 'not the jealous type' and has nothing to do with the death of her ex-boyfriend's glamorous new dentist girlfriend
    By Shekhar Bhatia In Dallas, Texas, For Daily Mail.com
    Published: 10:24 EST, 12 September 2015 | Updated: 15:57 EST, 15 September 2015

    Mrs Delgado, speaking in Spanish at the family bungalow on the outskirts of Dallas, said: ‘Brenda is a beautiful and very Christian person. She is a good woman.

    ‘She has the best family values and is not the jealous type at all.’

    Dr.Kendra,35, had recently begun dating Delgado’s ex-boyfriend Ricardo Paniagua, a dermatologist.

    Mrs Delgado said: ‘I knew Brenda and Ricardo had broken up. I last saw him in February when he came to our home.
    ‘I understand he broke it off with my daughter because he said he ‘had some issues in his life that he needed to take care of.
    ‘Brenda has been Ok and getting on with her studies. She has done her exams since they broke up. But I cannot tell you where she is right now.’

    Delgado is in hiding after being quizzed by detectives and her mother said she had not seen her since before the murder as she had been traveling herself on a religious pilgrimage.

    Family of driver in Uptown shooting fights for custody of child
    Rebecca Lopez, WFAA 10:38 p.m. CDT September 18, 2015

    [...]
    "If she is guilty, it is just," said Cortes' grandmother, Maria Fuentes, "and [as] an accomplice, but not as the shooter."

    [...]
    Meanwhile, Cortes' family says her 6-year-old son is distraught in protective custody and wants to be with his family.

    "I know, because the last time I went to see Ixxx, he was crying and he didn't want to stay there," Fuentes said.
    The judge in charge of Cortes' son's case delayed a ruling on where he should live, even though Maria Fuentes has already been a foster parent and is cleared by CPS to care for children in her home. She also has her granddaughter's permission to care for the child.

    "The further you get away from the actual date of the crime, the less evidence you are going to be able to collect." Schulte said.

    Sources say part of the problem is that the department is short of homicide detectives, who are over-worked.

    So why hasn't Cortes' friend — who once dated the victim's boyfriend — been arrested? Police say they don't have enough evidence for a warrant.

    Another Arrest In Uptown Dentist Murder Case, One Suspect Still At Large

    --snip--

    Here is the official statement from Dallas Police Friday night:

    Over the course of the last month, Dallas police homicide detectives have been working tirelessly together with our partners at the Dallas County District Attorney’s office and our federal partners at the FBI and US Attorney’s office piecing together information related to the murder of Dr. Kendra Hatcher, killed on September 2, 2015.

    Within the last 48 hours specifically, detectives have been working around the clock executing search warrants and interviewing individuals in connection with the offense.

    Tonight, we announce the arrest of Kristopher Love, Black male 03-23-1984, as the person we have identified as having shot Dr. Hatcher. He has been charged with Capital Murder and a federal charge of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and is currently in the Dallas County Jail on a $2.5 million bond. When Mr. Love was arrested, he was found in possession of the weapon believed to have been used to kill Dr. Hatcher.

    Additionally, we have secured a warrant for the arrest of Brenda Delgado, Latin female 6-18-1982, also for the charge of Capital Murder for her involvement in the offense.

    We want to thank the citizens who came forward with information and helped with the investigation of this crime. Additionally, we want to thank Dr. Hatcher’s family and the citizens of the City of Dallas for their patience through this difficult process.
    my opinion...........and i happen to agree with it.....
