THE body of a missing mom was found in her own trunk six days after the vehicle was initially pointed out to cops by her friends and family.
Angela Mitchell, who was reported missing in Texas on May 6, was the mother of four children. Her body was discovered on May 11 after police received multiple reports of a foul odor emanating from a vehicle.
The vehicle turned out to be Angela’s.
Friends and family of the missing mom found her car on the day she disappeared, according to ABC13. They brought the vehicle to the attention of police.
But there was no sign of the 24-year-old mother.
“I begged them to let me … investigate my daughter’s car, to open it to look at it to do something,” Georgia Mitchell, Angela’s mother, told KHOU.
Georgia reported Angela missing to Dickinson police, as that’s where she lived, despite the woman having last been seen in Texas City. The Texas City Police Department ultimately found the body.
“I went back to Texas City and they turned me away again for the second or third time and told me I had to file with Dickinson because she resided in Dickinson,” Georgia Mitchell told KHOU.
Georgia also added that Angela had been working through some personal issues.
“They just put her in her trunk. Threw here away like she was a piece of garbage.

“My baby is not a piece of garbage.”
Those who live in the vicinity where the vehicle was found told ABC13 they noticed the car but didn’t think much of it.
“To be honest, that’s nothing new in this town,” David Welch Jr. told the outlet. “You come across that situation every couple of months, or so.
“That’s just Texas City for you.”
Police have not yet determined Angela’s cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.
