Overview

Martinez was approached in her car, in a park, by officers drawn by her unlicensed vehicle. On determining she was listed as a missing person, Martinez fled on the Des Moines-Kent road. She met stopped traffic, drove on the shoulder, was boxed in by patrol cars, emerged pointing a gun, and was shot to death. Reportedly her twin sister had died violently in a police chase years prior and she'd expressed a macabre wish to die the same way.
