Woman’s body found in the trunk of a parked car in Texas

The victim has been identified as Angela Lynn Mitchell, a 24-year-old mother who was reported missing on May 5.

Texas police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in the trunk of a sedan parked outside a home Wednesday afternoon.

The victim has been identified as Angela Lynn Mitchell, a 24-year-old mother who was reported missing on May 5.

This happened just before 3pm near 4th Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr North.

Police said someone called the officers to report that they could smell what they thought was a decomposing body coming from the car.

When police responded to the scene, officers found the body of a woman in the trunk of the car, police said. Police did not specify the cause of the woman’s death.

Dickinson Police were also called to the scene as they were investigating Mitchell’s disappearance.

Mitchell’s mother said her daughter had a past with prostitution, but that she was working on her problems.

Dickinson reported her disappearance to the police, but it was the Texas police who found her body in the trunk of an abandoned car.

Angela’s mother claims that both departments originally dragged their feet to find a young mother of four.

“I went back to Texas City and they turned me away again for the second or third time and told me I should apply to Dickinson because she resides in Dickinson,” said Georgia Mitchell, the victim’s mother.

But the mother says her boyfriend last saw Angela in Texas City. On Wednesday, police checked a white Honda Accord that they said was parked on 4th Street North.

The mother suspected that this was connected to her daughter’s disappearance, and she is unfortunately right.

“I begged them to let me…investigate my daughter’s car, and open it up to look at her to do something,” said the mother.

Angela left behind two sons and two daughters, all under the age of ten.

“They just put it in her box. I just threw it away here like a litter. ‘My baby is not a litter,'” the mother said.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner has Angela’s body and will determine the cause of death.

Her mother said she wished the Texas City Police Department could help her find her daughter sooner.

“I just wanted to find my baby. I just wanted someone to help me and no one helped me.”
