Police Say Kassandra Martinez Ran Over Her Cousin after She Wouldn't Chip in for Gas

Categories: Crime

It started, police say, with a trip to the club on Saturday night. Kassandra Martinez, 20, picked up three of her cousins in her decade-old Passat and set off for Viviana's Nite Club, near the intersection of Stemmons and Royal Lane.

The deal was, Martinez would drive and everyone would chip in for gas, but when 2 a.m. rolled around, her cousins seemed less eager to pay, arguing instead over whether to go straight home or stop and get something to eat first. So Martinez left them there, driving off with the women's purses in her trunk.

She didn't go far. According to police, she stopped at an Exxon less than a block away. Her cousins caught up with her a couple of minutes later, having hitched rides with others coming from the club. Yunuel Aguilar and her sister got out and went to the back of Martinez's car to fetch their purses.

Before opening the trunk, Martinez asked if they still planned to help pay for gas. When they said no, the third cousin heard Martinez mutter "Well, if that's the way it is..." before throwing the car into reverse and hitting the gas.

Martinez' Passat rolled over Aguilar once backwards. Then, Martinez allegedly put the car in gear and drove over her cousin again, going forward this time. Aguilar was taken to Parkland, where she was pronounced dead.

Martinez drove home and went to sleep. She went to the hospital later that morning at the encouragement of her mother, who she spoke with on the phone. Police took her into custody at Parkland.

According to an arrest affidavit, she admitted that she'd been driving the Passat and had stopped at the Exxon. She also admitted arguing with her cousins over gas money but denied running anyone over. She swore "that her windows were up so she did not hear anything, nor did she feel any bumps, or hit any curbs or poles ... or any thing at the gas station."

The surveillance video police obtained from the gas station apparently suggests otherwise. She was taken to Lew Sterrett, where she's being held on a murder charge. Her bond was set at $150,000.

If only she would have taken Edward James Olmos's advanced calculus class while she was still in high school none of this would have ever happened. You've got to Stand and Deliver!

I'll bet next time she chips in for gas.


Wait, never mind.

What's all the fuss about? I mean: bitch wouldn't pay for gas, so ....

Plus, Kassandra with a K is kinda hot - I like that drop-shouldered thing she's wearing. I can only hope I look so good when I'm arrested. And now she's got this bad-girl thing goin' on - makes me wanna do her.

Remember, folks: always pay for your gas. Otherwise, ride a bike or walk. Or catch a ride but then get run over - twice.

Kassandra is a friend of mine and to tell you the truth this whole story to me is just shocking. Because never has she ever been violent or had any other problems with anybody. Yes she does have a kid. A kid who will be away from her. But yet your going to sit her and talk all this mess about her just because she was illegal. So what? Hispanics aren't the only illegals here so stop pointing fingers! And if anything I bet your family wasn't even here originally.

She is my friend and I just don't believe this story at all. Because she. Is a hard worker and accomplished so much on her own with out any other support. She didn't need your food stamps to nourish her child or herself!

Sounds like a nice family.  No wonder we were in such a hurry to get her into the US.  That's probably why EN forgot to mention that part.

Well the joke is on her; who's going to watch her kids while she's in prison?  Should've thought of that before you start running over your familia.

I object to the negative characterization of those of us who drive decade-old Passats, dammit.

I wonder what her BAC was when she did this.

Although I don't particularly like roaches, they are vital to our ecosystem, so it's funny you make the comparison. It seems that at the time being the wetbacks you hate, are vital to our economy, who else is going to build our homes and cook our food. Now go get some chips and salsa or whatever it is you deem wetback food

Can't wait for the tamale maker's 1000 other cousins to get in here telling us we all have it wrong and not to judge this woman because only god can and she was a good worker and she has 10 babies she need to be taking care of and she's a good mother etc etc etc etc stupid fucking human garbage people.

Yes, it does make a difference if she and her cousins are illegal aliens. And that EN chose not to mention it.

1. Were she not here, she could have murdered he cousins in whatever craptastic country she came from.

2. My tax dollars have to convict and house her worthless carcass until she dies. 

3. We already have plenty of sociopaths.  No need to let more in to commit the murders Americans won't.

4. If the fact that a criminal is an illegal alien were trumpeted from each report, more folks would realize what a problem they are.

My family wasn't native American but I am the son of LEGAL immigrants who waited their time, filled out the paperwork, and got all the right approvals.  She was illegal because she should NOT have even been here.  Oh and I never killed my cousin over a few dollars in gas money.

@keeponkeepinitdown Since you're so proud of your opinions, let me suggest, keepon, that next one you deliver has your real name attached. Just so your mommy and friends can share your pride.

Don't really care! But I guess same goes for you and all the red necks huh?

@scottie1620@roo_sterYour argument is so convincing, I have just re-evaluated all the principles on which I have built my political and social views and changed them to coincide with yours.  

I must admit, though, it is harder to reach the keyboard now that my head is up my ass.

@CornyDoggy @roo_ster  

How do you account for the possible factor that illegal immigrants often do not report crimes when they are the victim of one; or, that the average illegal immigrant does their best to avoid committing a crime for fear of deportation?

@Ngl.smiley I'm pretty sure the surveillance video knows what happened. I'm sure the toxicology results from Ms. Martinez will tell us how many drinks she had that night too, which will add some extra weight to her already serious situation.

And on your "family origin" bet, how much are you wagering?

@Ngl.smiley What makes me better than anyone else? I don't murder other people for a few dollars worth of gas. 

Just for starters.

Not being a superstitious peasant that blames everything on a mythical being rather than taking any responsibility in my life is another. 

Ngl.smiley

And what makes you any better than anybody else in this world? I know she did and I'm not defending her. God only knows what really happened. I am shocked and its hard to believe when you know someone who did this.

That's the only thing I'm saying but when it comes all of this other bs about being illegal and so many other people like you stereotyping is what ticks me off. So yes if you wanna go down that road hell I can too!

@Ngl.smiley You are defending a woman who ran over her own cousin-- not once-- but twice yet somehow you have convinced yourself that I am a redneck?

You are a prime example of what is wrong with our country today. Garbage people like yourself and your garbage culture truly need to be burnt off the earth.

@Ngl.smiley Now, who's the bigot?  I, myself, am a redneck.  If you look below, you'll find I was arguing the futility of bringing race and citizenship status into this story.  Sad.

@Daniel @keeponkeepinitdown @bmarvel And what do I care of "conservative contributors" despise me? I have no allegiance to any such ideology.

And even if I did-- conservatives don't make it a point to try and destroy the lives of those that disagree with them.

Liberals on the other hand will do anything they can to silence and harm those who say naughty things or dare step away from their collectivist cult.

@keeponkeepinitdown @bmarvel  You haven't yet noticed that our conservative contributors despise you, too? So it's not only "liberal fascists," but conservative -- um .. Leninists? ... no, wait ...oh, whatever -- that you have to worry about. Look, there's one behind the toilet!

@keeponkeepinitdown What a world you must live in, keepon -- surrounded by enemies. And "liberal fascist" ones at that. 

i'd say your worst enemy is a lot closer than you might think, huddled in your own overactive imagination.
