Purse Snatcher Convicted of Dragging Broward Woman to Death

`A 22-year-old purse snatcher was convicted of first-degree murder Monday for the dragging death of an elderly Holocaust survivor. [..]

Nadel was outside a Lauderdale Lakes drug store when Montanez stopped the stolen van he was driving and asked for directions. When she approached, he grabbed her purse and tried to speed away, but Nadel either didn’t or couldn’t let go.

Montanez dragged her for several feet before she fell, striking her head on the ground. She died the next day.’
