Angela Mitchell found dead: Missing Texas woman's body found in car
- The woman's cause of death has not been revealed so far
- Police have also not revealed whether they are looking for a suspect
- Mitchell's mother said her daughter had a past with prostitution
A Texas mom of four who was reported missing last week was found dead in the trunk of her own car, police said.
Angela Mitchell’s decomposing body was found after locals reported about a foul odor coming from the back of a white Honda sedan in Texas City.
The woman's cause of death has not been revealed so far. Police have also not revealed whether they are looking for a suspect in connection with her death.
Mitchell’s family members and friends reported her missing May 6 after she failed to return to her home in Dickinson. After an extensive search was launched, police found her vehicle at a location in Texas City.
When officers opened the trunk, they discovered Mitchell’s corpse inside.
Mitchell's mother said her daughter had a past with prostitution. However, she was working through her problems.
Angela’s mother claims both departments originally dragged them into the case.
“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, the victim’s mother, said, adding that a friend last saw Angela in Texas City.
The mother suspected that the vehicle was linked to her daughter’s disappearance.
“I begged them to let me...to investigate my daughter’s car, to open it to look at it to do something,” the mother said.
Angela leaves behind two sons and two daughters, all under the age of 10.
“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,” the mother said.
The Galveston County Medical Examiner said Angela’s body and will figure out the cause of death. The mother also said that she wished the Texas City Police Department would have found her daughter sooner.
“I just wanted to find my baby. I just wanted somebody to help me and nobody was helping me,” she said.
