COLORADO SPRINGS – This weekend marks nine years since a young college student at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was murdered. Today the case remains unsolved.
Angelina Marie Sicola was like any other sophomore in college, trying to find her way as an adult. Sicola Studied Communications and loved Taekwondo. On her path to achieving a second-degree blackbelt and becoming an assistant teacher. Midway through that year, Angelina moved into her first apartment. Just a few months later, she was found dead.
Early in the morning of May 2nd, 2013, Angelina was supposed to meet her older sister to drop off a parking pass but never showed up. Several hours later, she had plans to meet her father for a doctor’s appointment. Angelina failed to appear there as well.
Confused by her behavior, her dad decided to check on her at her off-campus apartment near Austin Bluffs and Academy Boulevard. He entered her unlocked apartment and found his youngest daughter. She had been strangled to death. It has been nearly nine years, and Angelina’s case remains unsolved.
