Murder suspect called clerk after wife was reported missing

Within several days of Angela Singleton being reported missing by her family…Jason Singleton reportedly called the Whitley County clerk’s office. Amy Smith answered the phone.

“He called and asked whether he was married or not..I thought it was an ordinary, every day phone call,” said Smith.

Smith says he did ask her for some advice.

“He wanted to know whether…to call his attorney to ask for an annulment, divorce or EPO,” Smith said.

Smith says it’s not unusual for people to call with questions about their marriage authenticity, but what is unusual is the amount of detail he went into about his marriage.

“Like telling me things like…they had gotten into an argument, and that he thought she was crazy, things that were not typical, normally a person would call and say things like, are we married or not?” she said.

Smith says later that night she spoke with Angela Singleton’s family about the phone call.

“At that point is when I got suspicious, and the next morning, I said ‘I better write down my notes, this might be something,” she said.

The next day, Angela Singleton’s body was found..and two days later Jason was arrested in Somerset…and eventually charged with murder.
