BIRMINGHAM — Dental records confirmed that skeletal remains discovered in a vacant lot belongs to missing Hoover woman Angela Michelle Roberts.
Jefferson County Deputy Coroner William Yates said Roberts’ skeletal remains were discovered Saturday afternoon, October 23, 2021, in an overgrown lot located on the 300 block of 64th Street South in Birmingham.
Roberts was 26 years old when she went missing. Her 27th birthday would have been October 14, according to a social media post by her mother, Ginger Fallin Jones.
Hoover police state that Roberts was reported missing on July 10. Family members said she was last seen in late June leaving a house on Old Tyler Road.
Cause of death has yet to be determined.
Jones publicly wrote about her daughter’s struggle with addiction on Facebook, writing the following post on September 5:
“Addiction and the brokenness of this evil world have robbed so much joy from the lives of so many. Angela has struggled for years and our family has been torn apart by the evil of addiction. When I close my eyes at night and think of Angela this is the face I see and not the evil of the addiction. As parents or family members we have to make hard decisions for the addicts we so desperately want to save and sometimes we question ourselves and wonder if we made the right decision, etc. Sometimes our decisions force our addict into change for the better and sometimes they spiral further into their mess. I cry out to God every night to keep His protective hand on Angela and for her to be brought home to me. Trusting in HIM alone.”
