Angelica N. Sumter is a freelance digital journalist with seven years of experience in breaking crime news coverage. Her work can be found on several online news publications, including Inquisitr, Liberal America, The Urban Twist, Crime Online, and Blasting News.
With a fervent for composing text, the Florida native’s writing career began in 2010 as an SEO ghostwriter for a myriad of content mills where she would conceptualize, research, write, and edit web content for medical and dental offices, law firms, insurance agencies, media outlets, marketing and advertising firms, and car dealerships in an effort to increase client’s online readership and branding improvement.

So many of us opt to remain indifferent and avoid knowing what’s happening in the world saying, “It will never happen to me;” it can. In the blink of an eye, one’s life can be annihilated through various acts of crimes from computer crimes to domestic violence. Thousands of people from around the globe are affected by criminal acts every day and being aware may reduce the risk of becoming a victim.
To date, Angelica has produced innumerable crime news stories, reaching millions of readers worldwide. When the true crime enthusiast is not writing, she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Criminology and a minor in Professional Writing/New Media at Southern New Southern Hampshire University.
