Tempe police have released a composite sketch of a man sought in connection with the robbery and dragging death of an Arizona State University student.

Twenty-one-year-old Kyleigh Ann Sousa, a pre-law student at ASU, was robbed and dragged by a car about 2 a.m. May 26 in Tempe. She was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma to the head later that day at a local hospital, according to the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police and witnesses said Sousa was approached Wednesday by a heavyset Hispanic man in a newer model silver Chrysler 300. They said he grabbed the young woman's purse before driving away in the 200 block of East Apache Boulevard in Tempe.

The crime happened across the street from the Twin Palms Hotel and an International House of Pancakes restaurant. Investigators believe there may have been others in the vehicle at the time of the incident and are asking for them or anyone with more information to come forward.
