Angie Hammond

Clinton, Missouri. The slogan on the city’s website reads: Great People, By Nature. By any measure, the city of less than 10 thousand residents in less than 10 square miles, is considered a small town. Clinton comprises mostly hard-working blue-collar residents, many of whom attend one of the dozen or so churches that dot the town. The close-knit community is typical of a small town, with residents knowing each other directly or within six degrees of separation. It’s in this rural community that 19-year-old Angela Marie Hammond was making her way through life. But this seemingly idyllic rural town would become the setting for one of the most horrific crimes the city had ever seen.
