Tanya Angus lived a picture-perfect childhood, filled with horseback riding, swimming pools and dreams of becoming a princess.
The cute little girl grew into a beautiful young woman who was popular, athletic and no different from anyone else in her neighborhood. At 18, she was 5 feet 8 and weighed 140 pounds -- and had seemingly finished growing.
"She was very energetic. She had a lot of friends," said Karen Angus, Tanya's mom. "She was a typical student. She would go from A's to C's."
