Angie Zapata

August 5, 1989 - July 17, 2008

Page Author's Foreword.

This file was created by Monica Jennifer as a memorial to Angie Zapata, with the cooperation of all of the sources whose materials were used with their permission. Any comments or complaints regarding content on this page should be forwarded directly to me. Some of the sources asked me why I wished to create this file. There are a few reasons. One of them is that when I first heard of Angie having been murdered, I said a prayer with a promise to Angie that if her killer was ever captured and brought to trial, that I would create the best page I could to her memory. The second reason it was created is as a record of what the trial of her killer did for the transgender community. At his trial he was the first case to ever be found guilty of trans bias hate crime in the murder of Angie .. thus establishing a legal precedent for any future cases that the killer of a trans person is caught and tried. The Colorado hate crimes law, in my opinion needs to be adopted in all the other states as well. Near the end of this file there is a video message from Judy Shepard asking for the federal hate crimes law to come into being. I personaly believe that this does need to come to become a legal reality. Judy lost her own son Matthew to a hate crime 10 years ago.

About Angie Zapata's life.

Angie Zapata was an 18 year old vibrant and beautiful girl. As it happens, she was also transgendered. She was born and raised in the city of Fort Lupton, Colorado, as the second youngest of six children. Angie’s family knew early in her childhood that Angie was in fact Transgenderd. However, it was not until Angie was roughly 16 years old that she started actually living full time in the Female gender. She lived as a daughter to her mother and a sister to her siblings. She also was the Aunt to her sisters children. During her High School years Angie was harrassed often by other students. The school administration gave little help to Angie with this. As such, in 2008, during the earlier part of the year .. like many other transgendered folks who are harrassed in school .. Angie chose to drop out of school. Monica Zapata has stated about the harrassment Angie received at school that “One time she came home crying saying, ‘Why, Monica, why won’t people accept me?’” She was like any other teenager save for the one diference being that she was transgendered. Angie always told people she met, about her gender status. Her sister Monica made sure she drilled that into Angie to do this. It is believed tho, by Monica, that her constant watching over Angie may be what made Angie choose to move away from the family home to an apartment in Greeley, Colorado. Angie was given the job of babysitting her sisters children including four nieces and a nephew. This provided her sister the freedom to work her full time job at Wal Mart. Angie was well loved by her family and by most of the folks who knew her in her community. She was constantly meeting new people and making new friends. Her sisters state that she was the prettiest of all of the sisters of the family. Indeed, anyone could see that Angie was very pretty.

Angie Meets Allen Andrade.

In July of 2008 Angie was using Mocospace, an instant messaging and mobile social networking site which is accessible via both cell phone and via computer. Sometime in the beginning of July, Allen Ray Andrade and Angie began communications there. This soon moved to Angie deciding to invite Allen who lived in Thornton, Colorado to visit her in Greeley, Colorado. Angie had an appointment to appear in traffic court the next day, in regard to a past traffic bill she was making payments on. She decided to ask her sister for use of her vehicle to go to Thornton to pick up Allen and did just that. The clerks at the traffic court the next day were very surprised when Angie showed up with Allen in tow, as she had previously always had her sisters with her. But she was now showing up with a man. Angie's case was announced with her male name (as Angie had not yet changed her name legally). So it was announced with the name Justin Zapata. Had Angie not done as she had normally done in telling guys that she was born male, this alone would have given Allen the truth then and there. He had plenty of time to leave her right there and then but he chose to stay with Angie. This alone was proof that Allen indeed knew of her gender status at least 36 hours before he killed her.

About Allen Andrade.

Allen Andrade was a member of a gang that often harrassed gay or trans persons. It is believed that Allen may have been a closet gay himself which is partly supported by the evidence presented during the trial where a pink vibrator was discovered in Angie's apartment with only Allen's DNA on it. The DNA level was high enough that it could only have come from anal insertion. Not something in following what a straight male would normally do. Due to his affiliation with the gang it is believed by many that Allen may have decided to search Mocospace for a transgender person to meet and murder in order to cover up his own closeted gay lifestyle. This is supported by his use of Mocospace in the bisexual area exclusively. It is believed by many that Allen knew long before Angie picked him up to bring him to her Greely, Colorado apartment. It is believed by some that Allen may have actually chose to get to know Angie before killing her as well as biding his time to find the easiest way to do it. Furthermore, it is my personal belief that he was looking for the right time to commit the murder when Angie would be most vulnerable, while sleeping. This theory is supported by the fact that there was no DNA from Allen found under Angie's fingernails or on her hands. Proof that she had no chance to fight back or defend herself. If she had been awake it is my belief that she would have fought back or defended herself and that Allen knew this. The fire extinguisher he used, after the first blow to her head, would ensure she would be stunned into the inability to fight back. The second blow would incapacite or kill. This is supported by the fact that later after he thought her already deceased .. he heard her making gurgling noises and attempting to sit up. It is my belief she never knew what specifically was happening to her. Allen again hit her with the extinguisher and she fell back to not get up again. She was at this time dying. Allen had succeeded in his premeditated murder of Angie. It was during the late night hours of July 16, 2008 into the early morning hours of July 17, 2008 when Angie Zapata was murdered by Allen Ray Andrade.

Angie's Murder Discovered.

During the early AM hours of July 17, 2008, Monica, Angie's sister, came to Angie's apartment looking for her. Angie had missed her scheduled apointment to babysit Monica's children while Monica was to be at work. Also Angie was no longer answering her phone. Monica was understandably concerned. Upon arrival at Angie's apartment building, Monica noticed that her green PT Cruiser, which Angie had been using was not parked outside. It was in fact missing. After entering Angie's apartment with her copy of the key to the door, she found her sister Angie under a blanket on the floor. At first she believed Angie was just asleep. She quickly discovered to her utter horror .. that there was congealed pool of blood around Angie's head and that the blanket was stuck to Angies face.

Angie was only 18 when she was murdered. She was but two weeks away from when she would have turned nineteen. With her murder Angie's plans to move to Denver, Colorado in the future to pursue her interest in fashion and makeup as a cosmetologist, were all dashed. With her murder, Angie's family lost a beloved daughter, sister, and Aunt. Angie is survived by her mother, Maria and siblings Monica, Gonzalo, Stephanie, Ashley, and Nicole.

Details Pre Capture.

There are many other details that you will see as you read the trial details below. I provided above .. the background details to Angie's life before moving on to the showing of the details of her killers murder trial. I will take us now to coverage from KDVR Fox 31 television station. This news story aired on July 26, 2008 which is approximately a week after Angie was murdered. We were granted usage rights to use this story by the Fox 31 web producer. It needs be mentioned here that the video shows an outdated link to their website as they had a different station website in that part of 2008. Here is the link to the correct website which is part of Fox 31 KDVR TV To view the video click on the picture of Fox 31 Anchorman Ron Zappolo's face below. He introduces the story coverage by station reporter Christin Ayers. After you click on the image of his face, a second window will open with the video playing on it. It takes a few seconds to start after the page opens. I will let the murder trial text further on in the file paint the rest of the details of the story as you continue reading this file and viewing the video and news links as well.

Details After Capture and Pre Trial.

On August 2, 2008 Dan Frosch a reporter for the New York Times wrote the following article: Death of a Transgender Woman Is Called a Hate Crime.

Thanks to Mr. Randy Bangert, Editor of the Greeley Tribune of Colorado we have the following link to a video of the press conference held when Allen Ray Andrade was captured. This video begins with the Greeley Police Chief: Jerry Garner speaking. Then after speaking a bit, he introduces the Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck. After both speak on the case for a short while, Crystal Middlestadt of the Anti-Violence Project is shown speaking after the conference ends.

Saturday, August 09, 2008 - Vigil For Angie held by the Zapata Family.

Our thanks go to MS. Elizabeth Schneider for granting us the use of her video of the Vigil for Angie held by the Zapata family on Saturday, August 09, 2008 at UNC. There were over 200 persons in attendance. There are a few typos in the text used on the video specifically on the dates. The beginning text states the year as 20098 but was supposed to say 2008. Also the date of the murder of Angie shown in the video is off by a day. It was actually on The night of the 16th of July into the early morning hours of the 17th of July when Andrade murdered Angie.

The video features Monica Zapata (Angies Sister) flanked by the rest of the family .. reading the family statement at the vigil. After that, the video goes on to Mr. Kelly Costello of the Colorado Anti Violence Program reading a letter from the family of Gwen Araujo to the Zapata family. (Gwen was also murdered in hate crime.) This is followed by a statement by MS. Kim Downer of the Gender Identity Center of Colorado, who also granted us permission to use her part in the video. This is followed by a photo of some of the crowd of which was in attendance. Next, a photo of Maria Zapata (Mom), Monica Zapata (Sister), and Gonzalo Zapata (Brother). Then a photo of the crowd holding up candles during the vigil. This is followed by another photo of the Zapata family. Lastly an address is given for donations to the Zapata family via the:

Voices From The Angie Zapata Family Vigil April 14, 2009.

Ms. Autumn Sandeen on April 14, 2009 made the following video at Lincoln Park in Greeley, Colorado, across the street from the courthouse. If you wish to see the original link where Ms. Sandeen posted this on the pamshouseblend website Click Here or please feel free to view it below. This video was made to capture some of the voices or views of the folks attending the Angie Zapata vigil that night. Autumn starts by telling where the vigil will be at, then the scene cuts to her room after she had returned from the vigil. She speaks about Angie's sister having spoken at the vigil. Autumn then tells that she had asked people why they were at the vigil and how she captured their response on film. Then the video cuts to their answers. This video is used with permission of Ms. Sandeen. Clicking on the video image below will open a second page to play it.

Beth Karas of TruTV Interviewed By Autumn Sandeen On The Trial.

On Sunday, April 19, 2009 Ms. Autumn Sandeen of the pamshouseblend website interviewed Ms. Beth Karas of TruTV In Session. The interview was about the Angie Zapata Hate Crime Murder case, and other cases that Ms. Karas had covered for TruTV In Session (formerly called CourtTV). They also talked about the coffee they were having at Café Woody's in downtown Greeley, Colorado.

At Opening Of Trial.

This next video features Prosecutor Brandi Nieto in her opening statement at the start of the trial of Allen Ray Andrade. I am told by Ms. Autumn Sandeen of that this video is not copyrighted as it was a pool effort to produce this "In Session" clip. This short video clip offers those who did not get to watch the case on CNN live the chance to see how well Ms. Nieto did her job. Not only is this prosecutor a beautiful woman but she did a beautiful job along with her co-prosecutor Rob Miller. In this file you will get to read the text detailing the words of both prosecutors. But here you get to see Ms. Nieto standing right in front of Andrade and his defense team during her opening statement. I am personally very proud of Ms. Nieto and Mr. Miller for how well they handled this case. This clip will open on a second page to play after you click on it. It will start playing about 20 seconds after the page loads.

Sources for Tweet Details on the Trial of Allen Ray Andrade.

In this section of this file the text is combined from two sources. It was recorded from both sources via and after seeking permission of the parties involved in reporting via Twitter tweets, this section of this file was created by me by combining both sources details so as to tell the fuller picture of the story as it happened in the courtroom. I had to first take and record the full feed from both sources, then re-arrange the text from both sources since Twitter sends newest text to top of file and oldest to bottom. So after taking each tweet from the bottom of file to top and arranging in order, I then had to combine from both sources into a singular file. Thus I created the combined text to use in this file. I will point out that the time slices do not match with Colorado's Mountain Time Zone, where the court case was at .. but rather match that of the Pacific Time Zone, where Twitter is located at in San Francisco, California. I chose to leave in the time slices and dates on each tweet so that it is easier to read. In the combined text from the tweets .. that part which is preceeded by the letters JFA comes from the twitterfeed tweets of Ms. Autumn Sandeen of who acted as a special reporter from within the courthouse tracking the blow by blow details. MS. Sandeen's tweets are used with her express permission. The text tweets preceeded by the letters GT comes from the twitterfeed tweets of MS. Sharon Dunn, Court Reporter, from the Greeley Tribune of Greeley, Colorado. I have included those which do not cause redundance, as per allowance granted by the Tribune. They are used with permission of the Managing Editor of the Greeley Tribune .. MS. Kelly Ann Tracer. The link to the online version of their newspaper is: You will note throughout the text that there will be many links back to their online paper included. I would recommend checking those out as they also tell details of the case.

JFA 01:52 PM Apr 20th: 1 in 300,000 chance it's not Andrade's.

GT 01:52 PM Apr 20th: Apparently a LOT of DNA from Andrade found on vibrator. Not just touch DNA, says Lewis.

JFA 01:53 PM Apr 20th: This is not DNA. Came from a DNA rich source. (Comment - the inference being made here is anal source.)

JFA 01:54 PM Apr 20th: correction - not TOUCH (casual contact) DNA.

JFA 01:55 PM Apr 20th: Angie's DNA not on pink vibrator.

JFA 01:56 PM Apr 20th: Semen from pink underwear from Angie's under wear her, umm, bodily fluid.

JFA 01:59 PM Apr 20th: Cross by defense attorney Martin.

GT 01:59 PM Apr 20th: Defense cross: Starts to talk about vibrator.

GT 01:59 PM Apr 20th: Defense: Would sweat be one of those things that contain large DNA? Lewis: Not normally.

GT 02:00 PM Apr 20th: Sweat could leave DNA, but based on my experience, not probable.

GT 02:00 PM Apr 20th: Lewis admits she can't be 100 percent positive on where that DNA came from.

GT 02:01 PM Apr 20th: Defense: Questions about cigarette DNA origin.

JFA 02:01 PM Apr 20th: Back to DNA on Pink Vibrator. Defense asking if it could just be a lot of touch DNA, and CBI agt said not probable, but not possible.

JFA 02:03 PM Apr 20th: Cigerette butts brought up. One butt had mixture of Andrade and Angie's DNA, one only Angie's.

GT 02:03 PM Apr 20th: Defense: Fire extinguisher. No blood and no DNA test? Correct.

GT 02:04 PM Apr 20th: Defense: You tested mattress right? Lewis: yes. Found semen on one mattress, but not the other.

JFA 02:04 PM Apr 20th: Fire extinguisher no DNA. Repeat.

GT 02:05 PM Apr 20th: DNA profile on mattress semen didn't match either Zapata or Andrade.

GT 02:07 PM Apr 20th: Redirect from DA: Amount of DNA on vibrator. Compare the purse and vibrator, and explain the different amounts of DNA.

GT 02:08 PM Apr 20th: Lewis said 3.61 nanograms from cigarette.

JFA 02:08 PM Apr 20th: Again, defense atty only says Angies name as "[male name] Zapata," never even just as "Zapata." Pt is to keep repeating male name.

JFA 02:09 PM Apr 20th: 3.61 is how much DNA is founds in Saliva, while over 19-point something was what was on Pink Vibrator.

JFA 02:12 PM Apr 20th: Comment - Not in evidence yet, but quoted statement of Andrade previously in news was "gay things must die." Soooo...

GT 02:12 PM Apr 20th: Sweaty palms cause amount of DNA on vibrator? Possible but not probable? Correct.

GT 02:14 PM Apr 20th: Afternoon break until 3:35 p.m, give or take 10 minutes.

JFA 02:14 PM Apr 20th: CSI agent just testified that anal secretions could be a "DNA rich source." (inference is that it is the source).

JFA 02:18 PM Apr 20th: Possible that Pros wants this to be the inferenced - Andrade is gay. This is sheer speculation on my part.

GT 02:25 PM Apr 20th: Beth Karas of Court TV is sitting next to me. You can tell this reporter doesn't have cable!

JFA 02:47 PM Apr 20th: Allen Andrade's account - when DA asked to retain Angie's account, could do. Allen Andrade's account not there.

GT 02:47 PM Apr 20th: Defense cross: If someone had a site and erased it, but there would be a time period it would still be on database? Yes.

GT 02:47 PM Apr 20th: But once deleted, completely goes away in 24 hours. Yes.

JFA 02:48 PM Apr 20th: Mocospace completely deletes all information about an account within 24-hours of request of deletion.

GT 11:16 AM Apr 22nd: K says Andrade knew he was in jail for a crime he didn't commit. That's why he had lighthearted statements in jail calls.

A Message From Judy Shepard.

On the following page at the HRC website there was a link to embed the video below on other sites. It was alowed so that Judy's message be spread. That link unfortunately was not usable here. As such, I downloaded the video and then placed it on my own page. I have linked it from there. I chose to add it here, as it seemed fitting to include Judy Shepard's statement. Not only because she mentions Angie in it, but also because Judy lost her own son Matthew 10 years ago when he was murdered in a hate crime. Judy's message is one that needs to be heard. Please do watch this video.
