Kendra Hatcher

An arrest warrant is expected to be issued soon for the ex-girlfriend of Kendra Hatcher's boyfriend. Hatcher, 35, was shot to death in the parking garage of her luxury high rise apartments in Dallas, Texas on Sept. 2.

Police arrested 23-year-old dental assistant Crystal Cortes (pictured top right) and charged her with capital murder on Friday. She is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

According to police affidavits, Cortes told police the ex-girlfriend loaned her a car to drive an unknown male accomplice to rob Hatcher in exchange for $500.

Cortes told police she thought she was participating in a simple robbery. She was to receive $500 from the ex-girlfriend in exchange for Hatcher's driver's license.

Police suspect the ex-girlfriend planned and orchestrating the robbery that resulted in Hatcher's death. The motive was petty jealousy over Hatcher dating the woman's ex-boyfriend, dermatologist Ricardo Paniagua.

A search warrant identified the woman as Brenda Delgado, a 33-year-old unemployed dental hygienist. Police say she used an iPhone app to track Hatcher's phone before she was killed.

Delgado and Paniagua dated on and off for 2 years. Cortes told police the couple ended their relationship earlier this year.

“She’s really only known her a relatively short period of time, and I don’t think she had any idea the nature of [Delgado’s] relationship with the guy,” said George Ashford III, Cortes' lawyer.

He said Cortes is cooperating with police “so that they can get everybody else who was involved arrested.”

Police took Cortes' 6-year-old son into protective custody on Saturday.

Hatcher's ex-husband, Scott Fisk, described the beloved dentist in a letter to the Dallas Morning News on Thursday.

"When the news arrived I couldn’t hardly process what I was hearing, and I was soon overwhelmed by grief," he wrote.

      I never will understand (because its not to be understood its unacceptable) how people lose their minds over snatch and/or peen. Like someone doesnt want you and they moved on, you move on too.

      $500.00 Folks is killn for nothing these days. Really only FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS?

      So sad, people are crazy. RIP Kendra.

      Her ex-husband wrote "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.

      When our marriage ended, we both went our separate ways and tried to move on. In the end, perhaps, we both wanted different things. When young love and long relationships end, it hurts and we both took our space. When the news arrived I couldn’t hardly process what I was hearing, and I was soon overwhelmed by grief. Then came the happy, smiling pictures circulating in the media, and the reports from family and others about how successful and loved she had become, and that she had shown her capacity to love others in service of her community. This had a double effect – it heightened the immense feeling of sadness and loss, but also provided solace that she had blossomed in her new life. In my heart, I had prayed and hoped she would realize all that she had dreamed of.

      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.

      Despite the time and distance, sitting here hundreds of miles away and separated by 7 years, the world just doesn’t seem as vibrant as it was when she was living in it. When faced with the reality of such an abrupt ending, I can only respond appropriately by approaching life with a new sense of urgency. But we are ALL reminded of our short time here, and that any impact we hope to have that is lasting and eternal can only be realized through the Grace of Christ, who lays joy in the hearts of those who believe, so that others may share in it, all for the Glory God. I knew Kendra well enough to know that she would want this, above all else, to be her legacy – that we each experience the joy He has to offer by pursing Him"

      But yet they still divorced, how sad; guess he didn't feel the same way.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Now I gotta do some education. What the heyull is a dentist stressed out about? Maybe that's why I had so many unnecessary fillings (ie made up cavities) last year.

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      No, a woman of color was tazed to death by cops in bio hazard suits. The whole scene seemed very reminiscent of a lynching to me?

    • Jusstlookn2

      You are 100 percent correct, I really would love to go back to MOB or Hospital patient side of house; however it's actually a very depressing environment. The staff has a zillion issues.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Amen. Can't get in bed without thinking about it. Then there's the flashbacks of my past life.

      I like Heavenly so much more this season. Last season it was SEW apparent that she was trying to hard on the "wholesome woman" gig. This season she is throwing shade and cursing folks out left and right. I knew Heavenly could sometimes be Lucifer's angel.

      This is exactly why I don't post any personal information on Facebook. This woman was killed for posting her happiness for the world to see. Unfortunately for this beautiful woman, the devil himself was stalking her Facebook hidden behind a Dental Hygienist that her boyfriend didn't want anymore.

      Kendra Hatcher was clearly beautiful inside and out. She didn't deserve this. Maybe it's best people settle drama with insane exes before getting involved with new innocent parties. Ricky has a type and Kendra was definitely an upgrade for his type from the Brenda woman. Guess no one told Crystal Cortez certain things mothers don't do because raising their children is worth infinitely more than $500. Her young child is in the system and she's going to prison and she had a respectable job! There's so much more to this about to come out. I still think Ricky was hooking up with psycho ex. I still don't think murder was the intent the psycho ex wanted her rival's ID and made it out to be a robbery.

    • chortlechortle

      I think they've got the only two involved right there. There was no male shooter and I doubt it was supposed to be a robbery. I guarantee the little toady Cortes did it...another article said Delgado had offered to buy the woman a car as well. Who does that? Looks to me like a murder for hire by a deranged ex and a willing, unintelligent single mom.
