Angelica disappeared together with her grandmother, Portia Washington, from their home at Park Place Apartments on Comanchee Trail in West Columbia, South Carolina home on June 10, 2006. Kenneth Andrew Lynch, Washington's live-in boyfriend, went missing with them, as did Washington's vehicle, a tan 2005 Ford Focus with the South Carolina license plate number 682 SEH. A photograph of Lynch is posted below this case summary.
After his arrest, Lynch refused to cooperate in the investigation into Washington and Angelica's disappearances. In September, a month after he was apprehended, investigators announced they believed Washington and Angelica were murdered and their apartment was considered to be a crime scene. Angelica's blood was smeared on the apartment's carpet, some of it mixed with Lynch's blood.
In June 2008, two years after Angelica and Washington disappeared, Lynch was charged with both their murders. Authorities had been considering filing charges since shortly after the females went missing, but delayed in hopes of getting more evidence. He was still incarcerated for the car theft when he was charged with murder. Physical evidence links Lynch to the disappearances. Washington and Angelica's relatives described Washington as a reliable, churchgoing woman and devoted to her granddaughter; she slept on a mattress on the floor and so Angelica could have a bed. They described Lynch as abusive; Washington allegedly told them he had turned her life into a "hellhole." She had kept current on all her bills before her disappearance, but after June 2006, never paid another one.
Foul play is suspected in Washington and Angelica's cases due to the circumstances involved. Their bodies have never been found.
