Angela Dixiano’s mother, Kathy Neal, says she mourned her daughter’s death for six months. Just a couple of days ago she found out detectives were investigating her daughter’s disappearance as a missing persons case.

Dixiano’s husband, 60-year-old William Dixiano, was arrested Thursday on charges of stealing a man’s inheritance. A witness says his wife threatened to reveal the theft shortly before she went missing.

Dixiano faces charges of theft, forgery and scheming to defraud. Police say he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from an unidentified man, who police say trusted Dixiano enough to sign over his power of attorney.

“Falsified some papers and in the process took a substantial amount of that money,” said Detective Slav Markiewicz.

Court documents say Dixiano bought expensive cars with the man’s inheritance. The victim also bought a house, which police say he signed over to Dixiano for a dollar.

She was announced missing last April and Wednesday night the Anchorage police announced they arrested her husband, William Dixiano on multiple fraud counts.
A witness told the police that Angela Dixiano had threatened to report his fraud to the authorities before her disappearance.

The missing persons case unraveled into a case that suggests $600,000 worth of embezzlement. Police say William Dixiano convinced an out-of-state victim, currently in an unspecified institution, to deposit money in a trust. William Dixiano claims the money went toward a fish camp but police say he spent the money on himself.

This Google street view-generated image of his Airport Heights residence shows a PT Cruiser and a driveway packed with a number of flashy cars, including four corvettes and, not pictured, an Itasca motor home.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at 2:30 p.m. on counts of second-degree forgery, first-degree theft and scheme to defraud.

Police are investigating the situation.

Details of Disappearance
Angela Neal Dixiano, lived in the 4100 block of Lakeridge Circle not far from Jewel Lake. She was last seen in April, 2010
after threatening to expose her husband, William Dixiano, of stealing a man's inheritance. A witness told police Angela threatened to reveal the theft shortly before she went missing. Dixiano's husband, William Dixiano, was arrested on charges of stealing a man's inheritance. Dixiano faces charges of theft, forgery and scheming to defraud. Police say he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from an unidentified man, who police say trusted Dixiano enough to sign over his power of attorney. Falsified some papers and in the process took a substantial amount of that money, said Detective Slav Markiewicz. Court documents say Dixiano bought expensive cars with the man's inheritance. The victim also bought a house, which police say he signed over to Dixiano for a dollar. The bank records show that Mr. Dixiano took the money, Markiewicz said. Angela's mother, Kathy Neal says she's only met her son-in-law twice, and it's hard to believe he may be responsible for or have lied about her daughter's death. Neal says William Dixiano called her in June to tell her that her daughter had died of cancer. She put an obituary in a Washington newspaper and that her son-in-law even sent her a plaque from the memorial service and spread Angela's ashes in Homer. But according to police, there's no death certificate. She said William told her his wife was threatening him and wanted everyone to think she had disappeared. When he told her that, Kathy Neal didn't think her son-in-law would lie to her. Neal is now questioning her son-in-law. We don't know yet what happened. That's why we are investigating the case because the circumstances are suspicious, Markiewicz said. The state says it has reason to believe Dixiano is dangerous. "At this point, we don't know why this happened to her," Parker said. "He's certainly somebody
we'd like to gain full information from on her disappearance. He's the last person we know of who saw her.

Woman is missing, may not be dead
Angela Dixiano
by Scott Hunter
Published: Wednesday, January 12, 2011 11:50 AM PST
Police in Alaska have officially listed as “missing” a woman whose obituary appeared in The Star last summer, a newspaper reported Friday.

Anchorage police arrested the husband of Angela Neal Dixiano on charges of theft, forgery and scheming to defraud, the Anchorage Daily News reported on it swebsite. And police said a witness has told them that the missing woman had “threatened to expose William Dixiano’s embezzlement before she disappeared.”

Police say William Dixiano was using a victim’s inheritance and trust fund payouts to buy big-ticket items, such as cars, for himself. A Google Street View shows four Corvettes and a PT Cruiser parked at his residence.

Police uncovered the alleged fraud while looking into Angela’s whereabouts after a friend told them he hadn’t seen her in months.

Her husband reportedly claimed she had died in April of cancer and that he had flown her body to Washington state.

An investigation by the Anchorage Police Department and the Alaska State Police turned up the obituary notice published in The Star last June. It stated she had died in June, in Anchorage.

That notice was submitted by Angela’s mother, Kathy Neal, of Electric City, who said she had relied on what Angela’s husband had told her.

William “Mike” Dixiano has subsequently said Angela wanted money to leave him and that he gave her $10,000.

Police have not charged him in connection with her disappearance, but he is in jail on seven felony counts, and bail was increased Friday from $25,000 to $100,000.

Police are still investigating Angela’s disappearance.

She had resided in Alaska for the past few years with her husband Mike. They had traveled to Hawaii where she was able to live her dream of swimming with the dolphins.

She is survived by her mother Kathy Neal of Electric City, Mike Dixiano of Alaska and her great-aunt Delois Metcalf of California.

She is preceded in death by her father, Doyle Neal, her grandparents Doye and Katherine Neal and her uncle Jim Neal, all of Electric City.

Her wishes to be cremated and have her ashes spread in Alaska will be carried out. She loved Alaska and had many adventures there. She is now free to fly with the eagles that she loved.

Husband of missing woman charged with inheritance theft

Anchorage Daily News

Last Modified: January 7th, 2011 10:39 AM


Anchorage police said late Thursday that they have arrested the 60-year-old husband of a woman who has been missing since April.

William Dixiano of Anchorage is facing charges of forgery, theft and scheming to defraud, police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said.

Parker said investigators are still looking for Dixiano's wife, Angela Neal Dixiano, 44.

Angela Dixiano lived at a residence in the 4100 block of Lakeridge Circle not far from Jewel Lake before she vanished, police said earlier this week. She is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Parker said in written statement Thursday night that the charges against William Dixiano "stem from an investigation which started as a missing persons investigation" into his wife's disappearance. Parker said a witness told police Angela Dixiano "threatened to expose William Dixiano's embezzlement before she disappeared."

Police detectives learned during the investigation that William Dixiano made large cash deposits into a bank account and bought four Chevrolet Corvettes, a motor home, a Chrysler PT Cruiser and a Buick LaSabre over the past several years. "It became clear in the course of the investigation," Parker said of an unnamed victim, "that William Dixiano was using the victim's inheritance and trust fund payouts to purchase items for himself without the victim's knowledge or permission."

Parker said the Lakeridge Circle home was quit claim deeded to William Dixiano in late 2006, apparently by the same victim.

Dixiano is being held on $25,000 bail. He is due in court Friday afternoon.

Fraud Suspect Arrested

1/6/2011 | Contact: Lt. David Parker 907-786-8724
Police Department

On 1-6-11, Anchorage Police Department Financial Crimes and Homicide Detectives arrested William Dixiano, a 60 year old Anchorage resident. He was charged with 5 counts of Forgery 2nd degree, Theft 1st degree and Scheme to Defraud. His bail was set at $25,000 with a court approved third party custodian required for release. The charges stem from an investigation which started as a missing persons investigation into the disappearance of Dixaino’s wife, 44 year old Angela Neal Dixiano who had, according to a witness, threatened to expose William Dixiano’s embezzlement before she disappeared.

Detectives obtained bank records using search warrants which showed that beginning in January of 2010, William Dixiano made 5 separate deposits of $20,000 into a bank account he held jointly with a 48 year old male victim. The deposits came from a trust account of which victim was the beneficiary. Detectives discovered that the victim had $600,000 in a bank account in 2006 but his out-of state trustee told police that the money had gone to the purchase of a house, a motor home, and a “fish camp.” The victim receives regular $20,000 checks from the trust. William Dixiano represented himself as a counselor to the victim when he was in an institution. The victim claimed to have formed a relationship with William Dixiano and his wife Angela, and believed that his friend “Mike” (William Michael Dixiano) was helping him to obtain his inheritance.

The investigation revealed that the home at 4160 Lakeridge Circle which was owned by the victim was Quit Claim deeded to William Dixiano on 11-6-2006. This is the last place that Angela Dixiano was seen before her disappearance in mid-April 2010. Records showed that William Dixiano had purchased 4 Chevrolet Corvettes, and Itasca Motor Home, a Chrysler PT Cruiser and a Buick LaSabre between May, 2007 and February, 2010. The victim lives in a mobile home in the Airport Heights area.

It became clear in the course of the investigation that William Dixiano was using the victim’s inheritance and trust fund payouts to purchase items for himself without the victim’s knowledge or permission.

William Dixiano is scheduled to be arraigned on 1-7-11 after 14:30 hours in Anchorage Jail Court. APD detectives are continuing to investigate both the scheme to defraud case and the missing person case.

Note: A criminal charge is merely an accusation of criminal wrongdoing. All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty by a court of law.

The husband, William "Mike" Dixiano, told a detective where to find the remains, two years after he beat Angela to death at the couple's home, said the detective, John Foraker.
