Angela Kay Krueger was reported as missing by her boyfriend, Anthony Wohllaib on May 12, 1996. Wohllaib told police that he last saw Angela on May 11, 1996, as she left their residence with an unknown male. Angela worked for an escort service at the time. Angela was described as a white female, 5’8”, 115 lbs, with blonde shoulder length hair and blue eyes.
On June 2, 1996, a recreational snorkel diver was diving in the Washougal River approximately 100 feet downstream from the Dougan Falls Bridge in Skamania County, Washington. He noticed something shiny on the bottom of a pool and dove to investigate. As he dove closer he saw a hand and arm. He immediately went to the surface and called 911. Skamania Co Sheriffs office responded, called a dive team and determined that there was a body of a white female on the river bottom fully clothed.
The body was subsequently recovered, an autopsy was performed and the cause of death was trauma, not drowning. Using dental records, this body was then identified as that of Angela Krueger. Ms Krueger had no contact with anyone after May 11, 1996, either in person or via phone or pager. This was unusual as Ms Krueger was said by her family to always respond to her pager. Investigators believe that Ms. Krueger was likely killed on May 11th. Based upon the remoteness of the location where Angela Krueger’s body was found, it is also likely that Ms Krueger’s killer or killers were familiar with the area of Dougan Falls and the Washougal River.
