On September 22, 1983, Angela Anderson, a 14-year-old African-American female, was found deceased on the upstairs bedroom floor at 416 NE Going Street. The house was a locked, vacant house that was for sale with a lock box on the front door and Angela had been discovered by a potential homebuyer. Angela had been deceased for at least one to two weeks prior to being discovered. An autopsy revealed that she had been strangled and sexually assaulted.

Angela Anderson had lived a troubled life, living in a foster home. Associates of Angela believed she recently began to engage in prostitution.

Angela was last seen on September 5th by her friends. Neighbors had reported that the vacant house that Angela was discovered in was used for drugs and prostitution.
