Those who get into porn with glee would never know the name of Angela Devi. With so many entering and leaving the industry, one girl from the next is hard to personally care about. For many of her fans, there has been an unusual mix of mystery and heartbreak at the swirling rumors that she has passed away. However because of the anonymity of the Internet, does anyone really care if a person suddenly leaves it?
A search on the Freeones board (where she was known to post) reveals at least a few threads on her and a couple or more threads on her death. Moderators who have connections to her family and have made contact with the respective companies she has worked for have confirmed her passing. Official word has been restricted, apparently until the family feels the need to release the information.
There’s all kind of speculation as to what could be the reason for her death, or even if her death was merely a rumor from her foes in the industry. Porn is entertainment, and because it does make more money than even the mainstream movie industry, it’s bound to mess with the heads of a few of its performers. That being said, Angela’s disappearance from the Internet has caused people to believe she’s gone from the world for good. But if she was only a mere user of the information superhighway, would you care just as much?
I’ve had friends come and go on the Internet, and most of the time it’s been explained that they use it for boredom or for someone to talk to. It’s like automated confession to speak into the keyboard, enter your whole life with a few strokes, and then at the end click on the X button to make it all disappear. Sometimes in these stories, you begin to care. But that seems to be the point at which they won’t cross the line, the fear ironically in that whole deal is also death.
