Man who killed Illinois woman to be executed in Florida
Twenty-seven years later man awaits lethal injection
The day Angie Crowley's family has waited more than two decades for is now about here -- her murderer is set to be executed.
William Happ is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday, more than 27 years after he kidnapped, raped and killed Crowley.
Crowley had recently moved to Florida from Oregon, Ill. The 21-year-old woman was driving from Fort Lauderdale to Yankeetown for Memorial Day weekend in 1986.
She planned to stop at a convenience store in Crystal River to call her friend so she could be guided the last few miles of the trip.
She found the store, but never made it to the pay phone. Happ was also in the parking lot.
Friends and family remember Crowley as a smart, beautiful woman with a magnetic personality.
