On October 12, 1984, Angela "Angie" Marie Samota was a vibrant, outgoing, and beautiful 20 year old college student obtaining her degree in computer science and electrical engineering, something women did not typically study at this time, when police found her sexually assaulted and slain in her condo near campus after a night of partying with two friends. Her case went cold and was solved 24 years later due to the perseverance of her friend, Sheila after a supernatural occurrence.  Her killer is not who was expected.
