Angelo Murder Remains Unsolved

The Bollard reports on the unsolved murder of James Angelo despite $41,000 in reward money.
“The most shocking thing is to have that happen to a person like James,” Gebrewahd said. “He was not a person who evoked any type of violence. He was always quiet and reserved, very respectful towards others.”

In a quiet corner of Calvary Cemetery in South Portland, James Angelo’s grave lies unmarked and unkempt, covered with lumpy sod and bits of hay.

In Sudanese culture, when there is a death without closure the dirt over the coffin is left rough. When the circumstances surrounding the death become known, a celebratory ceremony in remembrance of the deceased is held, and the soil is smoothed.
