Cause of death: House fire

Details:

Angie, Mikey, Casey, and their parents, Betsy and Richard (who was actually Angie and Mikey's step-father) all lived in a house in rural Carlinville, IL. It was about 7 in the morning, and Richard had already left to go to the chiropractor. Betsy and the kids were all still sleeping. Betsy's room was at one end of the house, and the kids shared a room at the other end. Betsy woke up to the smell of smoke, which filled the house. She fought her way through the smoke-filled house to the kids' room, tripping over everything as she went. When she got to the room, she couldn't open the door because there was something heavy blocking it - it had probably fallen. She decided she needed to try to get in through the bedroom's window, instead, so she fought her way back through the house and outside. She managed to break the window, but it was so high up that she couldn't get herself up into it. By then, the entire house was engulfed. When the fire department arrived (someone in a passing vehicle had called 911, but another vehicle didn't stop or even hesitate when Betsy tried to flag them down for help), Betsy was lying on the ground outside, screaming, and bruised from her armpits to her knees from bumping into everything and trying to get into the window. The fire department found Angie in her bed, and Mikey in Casey's crib. It turned out that a dresser had fallen against the bedroom door, and that's why it wouldn't open.

It was an electrical fire.

Angie was the sister of Michael Brent Bolino and the half-sister of Casey Ann Fenton, both also listed on this site.
