Boyfriend of Missing Teacher Extradited
By David Lohr
The boyfriend of a missing North Carolina teacher will face charges surrounding the delinquency of her 3-year-old son.
Angelo Smith Jr., 30, was moved from the Illinois jail where he has been held to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he will face a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. No additional details on that charge are immediately available.
Bianca Tanner, a 31-year-old second grade teacher from Greensboro, was last seen at Smith’s Charlotte home on June 7, police said. What happened to her after that remains a mystery.
A search warrant obtained by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department on June 10 alleges Tanner’s 3-year-old son told police that his mom and Smith were involved in an altercation prior to her disappearance.
Questioned by police, Smith allegedly said he and Tanner argued over a text message on the night of June 7 and Tanner left his home “intoxicated.”
Smith reported her missing the following day.
The search warrant also reveals that Smith has an outstanding warrant for domestic battery in Arkansas.
Smith disappeared in the days following Tanner’s disappearance. U.S. Marshals reportedly arrested him at a relative’s Glenwood, Illinois home.
