Strong odor led Texas police to discover a woman’s body in the trunk of a car

The victim was in the trunk of his own car.

The agents arrived at the scene and discovered that it was a white Honda from which the bad smell was perceived, so they opened the trunk and found the lifeless body of 24-year-old Angela Leeann Mitchellwho had been reported missing days earlier.

After informing Angela Leeann’s relatives of her death, they reported that the last time she was seen alive was on May 5 and after not knowing anything about her, they made the disappearance report.

Some neighbors who spoke about the rotten smell gave an interview to ABC 13 where they reported that It is not strange that they run into a situation like this where a dead person is involved because insecurity in Texas City, southeast of Houston, grows more every day.

To be honest, that’s nothing new in this town.. You run into that situation every couple of months, more or less. This is Texas City,” said David Welch Jr., one of the witnesses.
