Passers-By Rob Dead Woman
Jan. 03, 2002
LAS VEGAS (AP) _ The body of a Las Vegas woman killed New Year's Day after she was hit by three vehicles was robbed by passers-by before police arrived, authorities said Wednesday.
Las Vegas police said the first two vehicles that struck 42-year-old Lynette Spiller drove away Tuesday. While Spiller's body was pinned under the third car, passers-by combed through her purse, wallet and backpack, police said.
Detective Doug Nutton said one person later gave police Spiller's identification card, saying it had been found elsewhere.
Police said Spiller was jaywalking, but said the drivers of the first two cars could be charged with felony hit-and-run. The driver of the third car stopped.
