Angela grew up with her brother Danny in the same carnival world as Patrick Jane. She refuses to live in the carnival life. She marries Patrick Jane and goes to live with him and her daughter, Charlotte, in the Malibu residence.
Before the Red John incident, she begs Jane to stop playing the fake psychic but Jane doesn't care about it because he earns a lot of money in his job.
On the night of the murder, Jane is on the television, he taunted Red John and the serial killer comes to Jane's residence Malibu to take his revenge. Red John kills Angela and paints her toenails with her blood and did the same to Charlotte. When Jane returns home, he discovers a letter explaining the murder of Angela and Charlotte written by Red John:
"Dear mister Jane, I do not like to be slandered in the media, especially by a dirty money-grubbing fraud. If you were a real psychic, instead of a dishonest little worm, you wouldn't need to open the door to see what I've done to your lovely wife and child."
The murder of Angela and Charlotte is the main cause why Jane is sent to a hospital where he was taken care of by Dr. Miller. After he recovered from the mental breakdown, he swears to avenge the death of his wife and child by killing Red John. He joined the CBI, so he can reach this personal objective.
She is buried in the Alexandria Cemetery with her daughter.
