Florida killer scheduled to die Tuesday for 1986 slaying

Angie Crowley was making her first long trip through Florida on Memorial Day weekend in 1986 and was taking extra care to make sure she’d arrive OK.

Crowley, 21, never arrived at her destination. She prearranged with her friend to meet at a convenience store in Crystal River so she could be guided the last few miles of the trip. Crowley found the store, but before she could get to the pay phone, William Happ smashed her car window, kidnapped her. He beat her, raped her and strangled her with her pants before throwing her body into a canal.

Now, more than 27 years later, Happ is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday at Florida State Prison in Starke.
