Found on the Ministry of Defence owned Foulness Island in Essex, a place where access to non-residents is subject to stringent restrictions, the skeletal remains of Angela Millington were discovered along with a “gaffer tape mask” on 21st June 2014 by a group of ramblers. Of this bizarre unsolved case little has been revealed other than that two unnamed men were questioned but subsequently released without charge.
In May 2016, Essex Police’s DCI Simon Werrett (now a senior minister at the Eastwood Evangelical Church) commented: “Angela lived a chaotic lifestyle. Sometimes she lived with her partner in Southend, other times she moved back to live on the streets, mainly on Southend High Street. We know from people we have spoken to she was last seen around the end of January and beginning of February at night by the street pastors.… Someone out there knows what happened to Angela.”
Crimestoppers continue to offer a reward of £10,000 for anyone who gives information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for Angela Millington’s death and in 2018 Vice covered the case citing it as an example of “just one of the many under-reported murders of homeless people.” Sadly, little else has been written of the matter.
What a sad waste of a life. She looks like a nice, decent girl.
Awful. Where are her parents? Any other relatives? So sad.
This is truly tragic. That nobody seems to care other than the policeman is really shocking.
The tragic truth is, the scum bag who did this will probably never be brought to justice. To think he or she is still out there and will probably strike again when they get the urge.
