CLEVELAND, Ohio – Police on Wednesday questioned two individuals described as “persons of interest” in the murder of a Cleveland mother.
Authorities tell Fox 8 News the questioning took place after police located the vehicle belonging to the murder victim, 28-year-old Angel Bradley-Crockett.
Investigators confirm to Fox 8 News, the car was found shortly before midnight, at East 66th and Charter Avenue in Cleveland. Detectives towed the car to an impound lot around 1 a.m.
Officers had been looking for the vehicle, in connection with Bradley-Crockett’s murder. Her body was discovered along I-90 near West 41st Street, Monday morning.
Police are preparing to search Bradley-Crockett’s home looking for clues.
The remains of Bradley-Crockett were identified by her mother Patricia Bradley. Bradley-Crockett is a resident of Cleveland’s west side.
Officials with the Cuyahoga County coroners office tell Fox 8 News Bradley-Crocket was murdered. She died from strangulation and from being beaten in the head and body.
In speaking with Fox 8 News reporter Stacey Frey, Patricia says she wants justice for her daughter.
“For me to look at my baby on that table, the way they beat my baby. It’s not happening that way. No. No.” said Patricia, “They beat my baby, but they didn’t beat her to where I didn’t know she was mine.”
“She had 3 beautiful kids.” said cousin Angel Bradley, “[The attacker] didn’t have to do her like that. [The attacker] tortured her, hurt her. [The attacker] left her on the freeway like she was trash.”
Angel leaves behind three children, 6 and 10 year old daughters and an 8 month old son.
Cleveland Police are also launching an investigation into why the body was mistakenly identified as a deer.
Investigators believe the woman may have been dumped there on purpose.
