Evangeline Crowder (d. Feb 1996) was a housekeeper at the Hollywood Star Motel on Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles. She was murdered at the motel by William Gladden because she might have seen his computer with child pornography on it. He cut her body into pieces and put them in the drawers of a bureau. She was 19 years of age at the time of her death and had an infant son. The murder was investigated by LAPD homicide detective Ed Thomas. A fingerprint left at the scene led to the identification of Gladden.
