March for Justice for unsolved murder of beloved Hoopa tribal member Angela McConnell

"The Carpenter Family has been dedicated to the cause of finding justice for Angela Lynne McConnell, who was suddenly & tragically taken from us seven months ago. We have been organizing our "Justice for Angela" peaceful protest march, which will be taking place this coming Saturday, May 4th 2019, in Redding, CA, to create more awareness & interest in Angela's case; & to hopefully compel anyone, in that area with any information in regards to the case, to come forward.

We will not be satisfied until the person or persons responsible for this heinous crime are brought to Justice. Angela deserves that.

Thank you."
-Statement submitted by the family for this post--

Seven  months, still no suspect has been arrested in a tragic, double homicide in Shasta County. A 30,000 reward had been offered for any information leading to an arrest.

Shasta County Sheriff's deputies found 26-year-old Angela Lynne McConnell and 31-year-old Michael Thomas Bingham Jr.dead.

They were living at  a camp on the 500 block of Black Canyon Road.


Angela Lynne McConnell went to be with the Lord on September 7th 2018, in Shasta City, California, at the age of 26.

She was born on December 20th 1991, in Eureka, Ca, to Tammy Carpenter & Kevin McConnell. Angela was an enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe and was of Mojave, Yurok & Karuk descent. She was also a lifelong resident of Hoopa, Ca. Angela was a graduate of Hoopa Elementary and Hoopa Valley High School. She attended the College of the Redwoods and was pursuing a degree in nursing studies.

Her ultimate career goals were to be a journalist and a creative writer, as she was a proficient writer and excelled at creating stories, composing poetry, and drawing as she was an extremely artistic person. She was first employed at the Kim Yerton Memorial Library, which she loved because she was an avid reader of books and had a large personal library of her own.

She then worked for the Two River's Tribune Newspaper, writing articles & stories for certain community events. She excelled and loved her employment for the newspaper, and continued to be a supporting writer sporadically throughout the year. Her last employment was for the KIDE Radio Station, as a staff volunteer, since she was interested in a future position.

Angela is survived by her mother, Tammy Sue Carpenter and brother, Richard Michael Dale Carpenter, both of Hoopa; her aunts & spouses, Sally Slater, Debra Carpenter, Cherie & Charlie Bone, Sherrell Masten & Linda Miller, all of Hoopa; her father, Kevin McConnell, of Hoopa; and numerous cousins, who she loved very much.
