Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Angel Torres was last seen in Biddeford on May 21, 1999 in the early morning hours. Police say the night Torres disappeared he was on South Street in Biddeford, at what used to be Jim and Renee’s Market. State police say he came to the area from Massachusetts to sell drugs with a man named Jason Carney. Carney told investigators they were at a friend’s apartment in Biddeford, before going to meet up with “clients” who were unhappy with the quality of drugs they had bought earlier in the night. Police say Carney went back to the friend’s apartment upset, disheveled and without Torres. Investigators have always believed Jason Carney was less than truthful in providing accurate information and details of the events surrounding Angel’s disappearance and felt he knew of Angel’s demise and of his location. Carney died without ever telling them the whole story about what happened.
At the time of his disappearance, Torres was enrolled as a junior at Framingham State college in Massachusetts, but had taken a bus to southern Maine to visit friends.
Police suspect he was the victim of foul play.
