Angelica and her grandmother, Portia Washington, disappeared from their apartment along with Portia‘s live in boyfriend, Kenneth Andrew Lynch.  Portia‘s car, a tan 2005 Ford Focus with South Carolina license plates 682SEH, was also missing.

Several days after their disappearances, Lynch was cited for speeding in El Paso, Texas while driving Portia‘s car, the girls were not with him.  Around the same time, Lynch withdrew all the money in his bank account at an ATM.  In August of 2006, Lynch was arrested in Seattle, Washington, while trying to cross the border in Canada in a bus.  He was charged with grand larceny for stealing Portia‘s vehicle, which was parked near the bus stop with license plate removed.  Lunch claimed that Portia gave him the car, despite the fact that she never even let him drive it prior to her disappearance.

After his arrest, Lynch refused to cooperate in any form regarding Angelica‘s and Portia‘s disappearances.  A month after Lynch was arrested, investigators announced that they believed Angelica and Portia were murdered and their apartment was deemed to being the crime scene.  Angelica‘s blood was smeared all over the carpet of the apartment, with Lynch‘s blood being mixed in.

In June of 2008, 2 years after the girls‘ disappeared, Lynch was charged with their murders.  Authorities had considering filing charges early on in the investigation, but chose to delay doing so in hopes of gaining more evidence.  Lynch was still in prison for the car theft when he was charged with murder.  Authorities say they do have physical evidence linking Lynch to the murders.

Portia is described as a loving, reliable church, going woman who was devoted to her granddaughter.  She even slept on a mattress on the floor so that Angelica could have a bed.  The described Lynch as abusive, with Portia allegedly telling them that he made her life a ‘hellhole‘.  She had kept current on all of her bills before her disappearance, but after June 2006, not a single bill has been paid.

In the spring of 2012, Lynch waived his right to a jury trial and instead was tried before a judge.  In May he was convicted of both murders and sentenced to life in prison.  He could have faced the death penalty.

Angelica‘s and Portia‘s bodies have never been recovered.
