Angela was a 26-year-old indigenous woman of Hoopa, Mojave, Karuk, and Yurok descent. She was pursuing a degree in nursing, and her ultimate objectives were to be a journalist and a creative writer. Angela was a proficient writer and was distinguished at creating stories, writing poetry, and the visual arts. All those dreams were taken away when she was found murdered in 2018
Angela McConnell, 26, and her partner, Michael Bingham, 31, were found brutally killed on September 7, 2018, in the City of Shasta Lake, California. Their bodies were discovered after nearly 20 Shasta County Sherriff’s Office (SCSO) deputies, investigators, and other personnel were dispatched around 12:15 p.m. on that date to investigate a double homicide.
Only 9% of murders against indigenous women in California are solved. Unfortunately, Angela’s case is still unsolved.
