Angel Haynes, 25, was found with gunshot wounds at a motel in Whitehaven, Memphis, Tennessee early on 25 Oct 2020. She died at the scene.

Police responded to the Motel 6 on East Brooks Road near Fontaine Road at 2:19 a.m. Sunday according to WREG-TV. Memphis Police say the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A friend who set a fundraiser wrote about Angel:

Angel was free-spirited and wasn’t afraid to be no one but herself. Angel was a carefree, caring, determined, funny, smart, and giving woman. Unfortunately, our time with her was cut very very short. She was MURDERED!! She was taken away from her mom, grandmother, uncle…she was taken away from all of us unexpectedly.

The gofundme asks for donations to help with end-of-life expenses as Angel didn’t have life insurance.

At this time, there is no word on what may have led to this shooting or who may be responsible. Police say no suspect information is available.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
