It's believed that the remains of a missing teen girl have been discovered in a barrel that was unearthed. The property concealing the grisly discovery happens to be owned by the family of a convicted rapist who was last seen with the young lady. Any guess as to who is responsible for her disappearance? This is a truly sad story, and if the body stuffed into the barrel does turn out being the girl, hopefully there is a properly executed trial against the person(s) responsible.
During a search for Angela Allen recently the remains of a young female stuffed into a barrel were unearthed on the property inhabited by convicted rapist Lloyd Jones. The 36-year-old man was the last person to have contact with the 16-year-old girl before she went missing around February 10, 2012. Investigators say the body in the barrel had clothes with it that matched the description of what Angela Allen had last been wearing.
It's probably a safe bet that this body belongs to the missing girl, but her mother is holding onto hope that it isn't her. She wants her little girl to be alive, just like the mother of any young girl would. Nonetheless, the evidence in this case is disturbing. For instance, Angela had bet the 36-year-old sex offender on a social networking site. He was posing as an 11th grader, "grooming" her as sex predators do with their victims. He lured her from the social networking site to texting with their phones. He arranged a meeting with the unwitting young girl, and picked her up.
From there, her whereabouts are unknown, and this recent discovery is just indicative of what fate Angela Allen may have suffered. Luckily, the SOB is behind bars and this is being thoroughly investigated. An autopsy is expected when the factual identity of the corpse will be discovered.
