CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — A news conference scheduled for Thursday will address the murder of a 17-year-old Waynesboro, Pa., girl, whose remains were found on a farm more than two years ago.

Angie Lynn Daley’s family reported her missing in 1995 after she did not return home from a friend’s house on Waynesboro’s Hawbaker Avenue.

On Wednesday, Pennsylvania State Police announced they will be holding a joint news conference at 10:30 a.m. with the Franklin County, Pa., coroner and district attorney that will focus on the case.

“Information was obtained from a suspect, which (led) to the discovery of her remains,” police said in a media advisory.

No further details about the case’s status were released.

“The evidence is the evidence, but ultimately to me (the case) is unique because of Angie Daley, and her own unfulfilled hope and potential,” District Attorney Matt Fogal said Wednesday.

Daley’s death was listed as homicide through blunt force head trauma, according to a 2010 release from Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner.


On April 6, 2010, a warm, sunny spring day, state police found Daley’s skeletal remains concealed by vegetation on a farm between Waynesboro and Greencastle, Pa. The discovery came just hours after they pulled a woman’s body from a wooded lot off Ninth Street in the Borough of Waynesboro.

Police quickly charged Jeffrey E. Miles Sr., now 49, with criminal homicide in the other woman’s death. He is awaiting trial in the stabbing death of Kristy Dawn Hoke, a 29-year-old mother of three from Washington County.

Hoke’s family had reported her missing just days prior, unlike Daley, who had disappeared a decade and a half earlier.

No charges were filed in Daley’s death as the months wore on, with police repeatedly tellingThe Herald-Mailthey were awaiting information from the crime lab and interviews. However, investigators did say they believe Daley was killed not long after her disappearance.

Her remains were identified through dental records.

Suzi Delarnoux of Waynesboro, who was Daley’s guidance counselor at Manito, an alternative school, said Wednesday she wants to see someone held responsible for the teen’s death.

She said she does not want the perpetrator to “continue to live like nothing happened.”

“I think it’s a step toward closure ... if finally there is someone being held accountable,” Delarnoux said.

Delarnoux said she thinks of Daley often when hearing news reports about missing or murdered individuals.

“She was always on the go. I didn’t see her down a lot,” said Delarnoux, noting that she will remember Daley for her spunkiness and love of family.
