Texas City news, Texas news.

The family of a missing mom-of-four is outraged that finding her body took police five days to find her body despite it being inside the trunk of her own car located the same day she vanished.

Officers responded to reports of a foul odor coming from a parked vehicle near 4th Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Street on Wednesday afternoon.

Inside the trunk of the white Honda, they discovered a decomposing body later identified as 24-year-old Angela Leeann Mitchell.

    “You come across that situation every couple of months, or so. That’s just Texas City for you.”

    Police are asking witnesses to share any relevant information in connection to the case by contacting Crime Stoppers at 409-945-TIPS (8477) or Texas City Police at 409-643-5720.
