Angela turned 17 in January and broke up with her longtime boyfriend, though she continued to carry a torch for her first love. She dropped out of school and started working at fast food restaurants in Hattiesburg, where she met and began dating a black man, which at the time in Mississippi, was still frowned upon by many, including her soon-to-be stepfather. She found out in May that she was pregnant. Angela also discovered who her biological father was—and one of her classmates was in fact her half-brother. Two weeks before Angela’s disappearance on September 10, her mother Debra married her stepfather. She was in the process of moving in with a co-worker the weekend she went missing. The co-worker found a note from Angela saying that she’d be back soon. Her car was discovered hours later at the Mahned Bridge in rural Perry County.
