2008 murder of transgender Greeley woman Angie Zapata brought back into national spotlight

A Colorado man is currently serving a life sentence in prison after being found guilty of killing 18-year-old Greeley resident Angie Zapata, who was born Justin Zapata.

The case, which resolved in 2009 when a jury found 31-year-old Allen Ray Andrade guilty, is receiving a new dose of national attention from the network Investigation Discovery, which plans to run a feature on the 911 calls placed immediately after Zapata’s sisters found her bloodied, battered body in her apartment.

For those unfamiliar with the murder, here is background on the case:

On July 17, 2008, Zapata was found dead in her Greeley apartment. An autopsy determined the cause of death was blunt-force trauma.

Thirteen days later, Andrade was arrested in Thornton in connection with Zapata’s death.

Investigators learned Zapata met Andrade on the Internet and brought him to her home in Greeley. After learning that Zapata was a transgender woman, an enraged Andrade struck Zapata repeatedly with his

Missing Mount Laurel, New Jersey woman to be featured on investigative TV show on Sunday

MOUNT LAUREL — When Danielle Imbo and her friend didn’t return to her home after a night out in 2005, there were few clues, and while the 12 years since have yielded some leads, mystery still surrounds her disappearance. 

The missing-persons case of the 34-year-old Imbo and Richard Petrone, 35, of Philadelphia, will be featured on the documentary series “Disappeared” on the Investigation Discovery channel Sunday at 9 p.m. The series will take viewers through the details and timeline in the case and feature interviews with an investigator and family members of the victims. 

In 2015, investigators said they had promising leads in the case of a couple who vanished from a Philadelphia bar on Feb. 19, 2005. The FBI said at the time that Imbo and Petrone were the victims of foul play, likely in a scheme orchestrated by more than one person. In 2008, authorities said they were pursuing a possible murder-for-hire

Cold case involving NJ woman to air on investigative show ‘Disappeared’

PHILADELPHIA — Twelve years after a New Jersey woman and Philadelphia man vanished from a bar, mysteries surrounding their whereabouts and the sequence of the evening’s events continue to loom over the unsolved case. 

But this Sunday, “Disappeared,” which airs on the crime network Investigation Discovery, will sift through the little evidence there is in the case that has stumped authorities for more than a decade. 

Richard Petrone, of Philadelphia, and Danielle Imbo, of Mount Laurel, vanished in February 2005 after going out to a bar on Philadelphia’s South Street. Petrone’s truck was never found, and despite the offer of monetary rewards, no witnesses have come forward. 

Petrone and Imbo were 35 and 34 years old, respectively, when they went missing. They were both single parents who had recently begun a relationship after knowing each other in their younger years. 

The episode will air this Sunday, June 11, at 9 p.m. It will feature New Jersey and Pennsylvania authorities

TV show coming soon on Irish woman wrongly accused of murder

150 years ago there was no International Women’s Day. There wasn’t even a vote for women. So what chance for a poor illiterate, indigent Irish woman facing a murder trial before an all-male jury in New Jersey?

What chance then, what chance now?

The case of Bridget Deignan (sometimes written as Durgan) was once open and shut.

Author Sheila Duane opened it again.

Now it is about to be opened and shut a second time by a TV show.

With the same result as before.

Bridget would begin her short life in Sligo.

That life would be ended at the end of a hangman’s rope in New Brunswick, New Jersey, on August 30, 1867.

According to Sheila Duane, author of “Bridget’s Hanging,” Bridget was executed for a crime she did not commit, and by citizens who despised the Irish, the impoverished, and feared and distrusted Catholics.

That hanging is soon to be recreated on a TV show,
