How sad for the family. I hate to see the young girls problems put out for everyone to read. The media always seems to make it seem like less of a tragedy when the young person was on drugs.Happy New Years

FL - 17-year-old Angelia Headrick Murdered
BABSON PARK - Deputies have spotted torched cars before in secluded areas of Polk County, but it is what they found inside one in Babson Park that took them by surprise.
“It is unusual when you find the deceased remains of what turns out to be a child,” said Polk Sheriff Grady Judd.
They believe the remains are of 17-year-old Angelia Headrick of Haines City.
Sheriff Judd says someone soaked her car with gasoline before setting it on fire, while she was in the trunk.
“We don’t know if the person in the trunk of the car was burned alive, or was already dead,” Judd said.

Teen found dead in burned car
snips from article:
Angelia Michelle Headrick, 17, of Haines City, was reported missing Thursday evening by her grandmother after she didn't return home, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said Saturday. The car and the remains were found Friday in a Babson Park orange grove.
Headrick, of 6190 Hatchineha Road, was last seen alive Wednesday. The vehicle in which the body was found, a silver 2001 Mitsubishi Galant, is registered to her.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he can't confirm the identity of the remains until autopsy results are complete.
Headrick was known to sell cannabis and cocaine, according to the Sheriff's Office.
A grove worker noticed a fire Thursday about 1:30 p.m., but thought it was other workers burning downed orange trees. It wasn't until Friday afternoon when he was in that part of the grove spraying trees that he discovered the charred car. The worker called the Sheriff's Office, and deputies found the human remains in the trunk.

How horrible. Looking at her picture, such a pretty girl, seems like there would have been something she could have done with her life other than sell drugs. I guess nothing that she would make as much money.
I'm at a loss for words. Such a sad and senseless death.

Never judge a book by its cover huh? She sure don't look like the stereotypical druggie. Beautiful young blonde girl. I just hope she was already dead before they set the car on fire. How sad and what a shame.

This is from January:
A Bright Future Cut Short
Few ever noticed how drugs changed Angelia Headrick's behavior.
HAINES CITY - Angelia Michelle Headrick, a curly-haired cheerleader who made straight A's, wanted a career in forensic science. But in the past few months, Angelia straddled two worlds: Diligently checking in with her grandmother while falling deeper into the world of drugs.
Last week, her life came to an end. Three men were arrested Wednesday in connection with the 17-year-old's brutal death, which police say stemmed from Angelia's ties to small-time drug dealers.

Storys like this really upset me. Everyone knew that this girl was into the drug scene except her grandparents who she lived with. I would guess that the grandparents didn't know a lot about the signs of kids on drugs because from the things that she said...the changes in Angel..it is pretty obvious that something wasn't right. When a kid is a straight A student and the grades suddenly drop that is when a parent needs to start investigating the life of their teen. So many things that were said pointed to drugs.
It ticks me off that her mother knew what she was doing but didn't say anything to her. I guess the mother thought it was alright for her daughter if it was alright for her. Sickening.
I wish that some of Angel's good friends would have called the grandmother and told her of their concerns. That is what good friends do even if it makes the one that is headed for trouble mad at them. They try to help her get her life turned around. Just talking to the one in trouble usually doesn't work.
This young girl could have had such a bright future. The whole thing is just such a shame. Drugs and alcohol are killers.

This whole story heartbreaking, i feel for the grandmother..
It sounds like the boyfriend just turned her on to drugs and selling. If he really loves her, i doubt he'd ever turn anyone on to drugs again. I hope the mother gets the other children taken away since she said she's also on drugs and ignored the fact that Angelia was also. The poor grandparents, sometimes you try so hard, yet there was no way they could have known unless the friends or mother had told them.. hopefully the community really does take it as a wake up call. My prayers to Angelia's friends and family..

BARTOW - Gary Michael Glisson Jr. and Eric Rodriguez were sentenced to life in prison without parole for the 2007 killing of 17-year-old Angelia "Angel" Headrick.
Circuit Judge J. Michael Hunter sentenced them in a hearing Wednesday, after each had been found guilty in separate trials of robbing and killing the Haines City High School student. Juries recommended the death penalty for both men, but the State Attorney's Office waived it to prevent Glisson's defense from requesting a new trial.
Chip Thullbery, spokesman for the State Attorney's Office said Thursday that the change was made "in consultation with the victim's family." Glisson's lawyers, Robert and Andrea Norgard, had filed a motion for a new trial, but withdrew it on the condition of Glisson receiving life imprisonment.
