VT - Angela Belisle homicide, Burlington, 1981
25 years later, city homicide remains unsolved
Patrick Foley remembers kneeling by the frozen body of Angela Belisle.
It was Jan. 3, 1981. Foley, a detective with the Burlington Police Department, had been called out to investigate the discovery of a woman's body lying outside her apartment at 62 Brookes Ave. on a sub-zero Saturday morning.
The passer-by who discovered Belisle lying face-up by the driver's side of her car told police the body in the snow looked like a dummy, a mannequin.
Now, as Foley knelt with state Medical Examiner Eleanor McQuillen by Belisle's body, he understood what the passer-by meant. There were no signs of a struggle, no flurry of footprints in the snow. Maybe she had just slipped and hit her head, he thought.
"Then I looked more closely and noticed a speckling of blood on her cheek," Foley recalled.
Moments later, Foley knew he had a homicide on his hands. Belisle, 35, an attractive, blonde mother of three and a University of Vermont graduate student, had been shot twice, once in the head and once by a shot that had grazed the top of her skull.

The link did not work for me... I will have to try searching it up.
At 35 with 3 children those kids must have been pretty young still...
I cannot imagine how traumatic that must have been for them growing up.
I will think of you Angela and your children and I will hope and pray that the person who robbed you of your life will be caught and convicted.
