Angela DeAngelis Atwood
Sometimes, in-your-face women live what appear after the fact to have been multiple lives. Angela DeAngelis Atwood was one such woman. Starting out as a sorority girl at Indiana University in Bloomington, some said Angela was trained by a C.I.A. think tank and served as part of a “mod-squad” style undercover narcotics unit for a while. In 1973, she turned up in California as one of the members of the Symbionese Liberation Army -- the infamous group that kidnapped newspaper heiress Patty Hearst in one of the grandest dramas of that wildly radical period of U.S. history. Angela’s body was found in a house in Los Angeles after a fateful shoot-out with the police. The real story? Who knows? But one thing’s for sure, it’d be all the way in-your-face.
