Angenette Welk of Ocala, Florida, hit the news this week not because of the crime she committed, but the image she portrayed in her mugshot.
Just before midnight on May 10, Welk failed to hit her brakes when approaching stopped vehicles in front of her on U.S. Highway 27, crashing into two cars. She rear-ended the Hyundai Elantra driven by 18-year-old Shiyanne Kroll with enough force to cause fatal injuries to Kroll’s passenger, Sandra Clarkson. . .
Welk faces charges of DUI, DUI with property damage and DUI with great bodily harm. Upon news of the death of Clarkson, Florida Highway Patrol officials are seeking an upgraded charge of DUI manslaughter.
Keonna Sciacca, Clarkson’s other daughter, said of the tragedy, “It’s definitely wrecked our family forever, not just temporarily, this was a permanent thing that (Welk) did. (I’m) trying to cope with the fact that I won’t see (my mom) walk again, she won’t be home when I get home from work or in the mornings when I get home from work.”
After seeing Welk’s mugshot, Kroll added, “That disgusts me and that means she has no remorse for what she did at all and I hope that judge sees that picture and says the same thing.” (Read more from “Dead Victim’s Family Horrified over Smiling Suspect’s Mugshot” HERE)
