Little did they know, they would find Angela’s body in the trunk of ex-boyfriend’s, Jason Baker’s car. Baker killed her at home before driving the car and fleeing. Local prosecutors allege Baker acted “with the intent to cause cruel and extreme pain and suffering for the purpose of revenge, extortion, persuasion and for a sadistic purpose.”
