Angara Murder Remains Unsolved
Eighty-five people work at the Totowa complex but only 50 were at work on the night of the killing. Police have interviewed all of these and asked for DNA tests from all the possible suspects.
He said the killer would only have had a small window of opportunity and added: "We have a pretty tight time-frame that we are working with.”We are convinced it was somebody working at the Passaic Valley plant and not an outsider. The motive has always been something difficult to find in this case.
"Until we have ascertained what happened it is difficult to infer what the motive could have been. "Things are theoretically possible but there's nothing concrete. There is a suggestion that some may have felt slighted that they were passed over [for promotion] but it is not enough of a motive to kill someone."
Ernie Landante, a spokesman for her employers, said: "Dr Angara was an exemplary employee. She is certainly missed by her family and, without question, she is missed by the Passaic Valley Water Commission.
He told the BBC News website: "The plant is a state-of-the-art facility and her expertise was a major part of operating the facility. She had a PhD and several masters degrees and was promoted about a year ago."
Mr. Latoracca said: "By all accounts she was a terrific person, a very dedicated employee, a very intelligent woman and a dedicated wife and mother."
Indian-born Dr Angara, who lived in nearby Holmdel, left behind a husband, Jaya, and three children, aged nine, 13 and 19.
