KANSAS CITY, Missouri — A Kansas City woman has died after being struck by a vehicle in the Northeast this past weekend.

Law enforcement officials said Jesus E. Dominguez, 36, also known as Tamara Dominguez, died after being struck several times by a vehicle, possibly on purpose.

On Saturday, Aug. 15, officers were called to the area of Independence and Spruce Avenues just before 3 a.m. on a report of an injured pedestrian. A witness told police she saw Dominguez exit an SUV, which then ran over her intentionally. While lying on the ground, the driver of the SUV backed over the victim, and then drove over her a third time before leaving the scene southbound on Spruce Avenue. Dominguez was transported to an area hospital where she later died.

No arrests have yet been made. The KCPD Homicide unit is asking for the public’s help locating the vehicle of interest in the aforementioned homicide. The vehicle of interest is a dark in color over gray Chevy Avalanche with the trim package around the bed and gray lower body . The vehicle has tinted windows and dark color after-market wheels. It also has been noted to have a loud muffler.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact Crime Stoppers Greater Kansas City TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477), TIPS may also be submitted electronically at www.KCcrimestoppers.com or by texting TIP452 and your information to 274637 (CRIMES). All information is anonymous.
