This week, Kristin tells Mogab about the murder of Angela Samota. Angela was a 20 year old college student in Dallas, Texas when she called her boyfriend, Ben, in the middle of the night sounding really odd. She said there was a man in her apartment asking to use the bathroom and her phone, and she asked Ben to keep talking to her. When she suddenly hung up, Ben was worried and drove over to her apartment. There, she was found on her bed, stabbed to death. It would take 20 years and a best friend who never gave up on finding Angela's killer for this case to finally be solved.
