Body Of Missing Mom of 4 Found Stuffed In Car Trunk After Passerby Noticed The Smell
The body of a Texas mother was found almost a week after she disappeared.
Angela Leann Mitchell, 24, of Dickinson, Texas, was last seen by a friend near Texas City on May 5, KHOU-TV had reported. She was reported missing by her mother Georgia Mitchell the following day after failing to return home to her four children.
On Wednesday, a Texas City resident called 911 to report that a car parked on the 400 block of 4th Street North was smelling, KTRK-TV reports. The white Honda had been in the neighborhood for some time before Mother's Day.
Investigators who arrived at the scene, noting the smell was from decomposition, slammed the truck and found Mitchell's body, the station said. Crime Online reported that the car was hers.
Her cause of death is still pending.
"She doesn't deserve someone taking her life. She's not a bad person," Georgia Mitchell told KHOU.
Georgia Mitchell told KTRK-TV that she actually asked police to open the trunk of the car days earlier because she couldn't figure out why her daughter left her car in that area.
"I met police officers at their vehicle here in Texas City after I filed a missing persons report and I begged them," she told the station. "I asked them to search my daughter's car. 'Please search my daughter's car. Please investigate.” I begged. I begged the cops and they just fired me."
Mitchell explained that she was concerned after being without contact with her daughter for 24 hours, and her fears only increased when her calls to Angel went to voicemail and the woman's phone from her mother's phone locator app disappeared.
A police document reviewed by KTRK-TV says cell phone recordings showed Angela Mitchell's last activity was around 10:00 p.m. on May 5 near a home in the Lago Mar subdivision — 12 miles west of where her car and body were found.
Her death leaves four children aged 9 years to 7 months without a mother.
Georgia Mitchell vowed to make sure the kid grows up and knows "how much she loved him — I'll make sure he knows."
