Person Who Killed Pregnant Mattawa Woman At Large

MATTAWA, Wash. (AP) - The Grant County sheriff's office in Washington state says detectives have no suspect or motive in the fatal shooting of a pregnant woman in Mattawa.

Chief Deputy Ryan Rectenwald says the woman had no significant history of contact with police. He says there's nothing to indicate drugs or gangs were involved, and it wasn't a drive-by shooting or domestic violence. But Rectenwald says it's his personal opinion that it was not random.

The 28-year-old woman, Esperanza Vicente-Mestizo, was unloading groceries from her car late Saturday night outside her apartment when she was shot by someone on foot. She was 7 1/2 months pregnant and was taken to a hospital in Othello where she and the unborn boy died.

MATTAWA, Wash. (AP) - The Grant County, Wash., sheriff's office says a pregnant woman was unloading groceries from her car when she was fatally shot outside her apartment.

The county coroner identified her Monday as 28-year-old Esperanza Vicente-Mestizo. The coroner's office says the cause of death was gunshot wounds to the torso. The woman was seven-and-a-half months pregnant. She was taken to a hospital in Othello where she and the unborn child died.

Chief Deputy Ryan Rectenwald says the woman was shot Saturday night, apparently by someone on foot. Rectenwald says it's not domestic violence. Her husband or boyfriend was inside at the time.

No one saw the shooting but Rectenwald says detectives are working several leads.
