Missing Atlanta Dancer Found Dead; Murder Suspected
The body of Angela Rabotte, 26, a popular Atlanta stripper who had been missing since last Friday, was discovered in Norcross, Georgia and one person of interest is in custody, reports the AJC.com.
Rabotte, who is known by the stage name Climax, was discovered by a survey crew in a heavily wooded around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
Angela Rabotte, an exotic dancer who went missing in Atlanta, was found dead in Lilburn, according to local reports.
Rabotte, 26, had been missing since last Saturday. Her body was found in a wooded area near Lilburn Industrial Way and Arcado Road, and it was discovered by surveyors working in the area, police told AJC.com.
She was last seen in the Steeplechase Apartments parking lot on Saturday. Officials said she dropped her daughter off with a friend before attending a party.
Police believe that foul play is suspected in her death. Detectives are now investigating the matter.
“Don’t know what I’m going to tell my daughter. That’s is what just kills me because she wakes up every morning talking about her mommy,” Rabotte’s ex-boyfriend Darrell Campbell told WSB-TV.
One of the last people to have seen her alive is in custody, but on different charges. Officials described him as a person of interest.
“Fair to call him a person of interest but he has been in custody far before we had this crime scene. He was actually in custody in the Gwinett County Jail without bond for about 48 hours now. His name is Charles Outlaw, he is one of the last people seen with her, but he is not charged in this crime by any means,” Gwinnet County Police Cpl. Jake Smith told the broadcaster.
Lilburn police Capt. Thom Bardugon did not say what led them to suspect it was foul play.
“We always treat it as such until we know otherwise,” Bardugon told the Gwinnett Daily Post. “The medical examiner will do the autopsy either today or tomorrow,” Bardugon said Thursday. “That will be the best chance to figure out the cause of death.”
