Slain Dallas Dentist's Family Remembers Kendra Hatcher

The family of slain Dallas dentist Kendra Hatcher finally has closure after authorities arrested the woman they say orchestrated the murder-for-hire plot that left Hatcher dead.

Hatcher, 35, was shot and killed in her Uptown apartment garage Sept. 2, 2015. Investigators say the slaying stemmed from a love triangle involving 33-year-old Brenda Delgado, who had dated Hatcher's boyfriend.

A nearly seven-month-long manhunt for who police say arranged the killing came to and end over the weekend. Delgado, 33, indicted for capital murder last fall and arrested in Mexico days after she was added to the FBI’s "Ten Most Wanted" list.

"After I heard that she had been captured or possibly captured, it was like the weight of the world came off my shoulders," said Hatcher's brother, Neil Hatcher.

He thinks about his sister every day. Pictures of Kendra Hatcher is what he has left of her.

"She touched people on an international scale," said Neil Hatcher. "It doesn’t just affect the family, it affected the world."

The Dallas dentist used her skills to help people around the world, in particular Spanish-speaking communities. Her love and passion for life was the bond that brought people around her together.

"I’ve always said we’re a C-plus family," said Neil Hatcher. "But Kendra kind of made us an A-plus family."

There is still much pain and many questions Kendra Hatcher's family hopes will be answered once Delgado is returned to North Texas.
