This isn't the first time this has happened according to the story:
It was the second time a body has been found duct-taped inside a sleeping bag along the roadside in Snohomish County.
In the first incident, in November 2007, a well-groomed man in his 40s was found about 10 feet off the roadway along Interstate 5 in Mountlake Terrace.
The body was later connected to a Lynnwood home with a substantial drug cache, including cocaine, marijuana, several pounds of heroin and a large amount of cash.
Two men were later arrested in connection with that incident. - snipped
Here's an article from 2007 about the prior sleeping bag victim:
Thanks for the post Ruby...just called to make sure my son was okay. He lives in Lynnwood and works at Paine Field (Boeing). He hadn't heard anything but def. not him. That's a little too close to home....

EVERETT, Wash. -- Everett police said a person whose body was found inside a sleeping bag in Everett on Sunday died as the result of homicidal violence.
Everett police said the victim was a woman in her 30's with a last known address in Seattle. She has no criminal history, police said.
Though the exact cause of death has not been released, police said there were obvious signs of homicidal violence on the body. - snipped
So I guess that means that they have identified this victim already. Hopefully we can give her a name soon.

I hope they catch who did this soon. My sympathies to Angela's friends and family.

Woman found slain near Paine Field ID’d

Beery didn’t deserve what happened to her, said her mother, Toni Lemley, speaking from her home in Las Vegas. She pleaded with people in Snohomish County to contact police if they saw anything that could help detectives solve the case.
Lemley described her daughter as a kind, outgoing woman who once served in the U.S. Army. She also was a mother of two teenage children but they weren’t living with her, Lemley said.
“She had the cheerleader-type personality,” Lemley said. “She loved to be around people.”
Beery was born and raised in New Mexico. She moved around a lot and ended up in Seattle not too long ago.
Goetz said Beery had a prostitution charge in Seattle.
Lemley said she chatted with her daughter online on Friday and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. She hopes detectives soon will be able to shed light on how Beery got in harm’s way.
“So there can be closure for her children, for her family,” Lemley said. - snipped

I love how the prostitution charge is in the article but not the name of the guy they arrested for murder.
