Victoria Vetri, also known as Angela Dorian, was a former Playboy Playmate and actress who achieved fame in the 1960s and 1970s. However, her life took a dark turn in the years that followed, and she eventually found herself behind bars.
Born in San Francisco in 1944, Vetri began her career as a model before transitioning to acting. She appeared in a number of films and TV shows, including “Rosemary’s Baby” and “Mission: Impossible.” In 1968, she was named Playboy’s Playmate of the Year.
Despite her early success, Vetri’s life began to spiral out of control in the 1970s. She struggled with drug addiction and was arrested several times for drug-related offenses. In 1982, she was involved in a shooting incident that left her husband, Bruce Rathgeb, paralyzed from the waist down. Vetri was charged with attempted murder and sentenced to nine years in prison.
While in prison, Vetri continued to struggle with addiction and was placed in solitary confinement several times for drug-related incidents. In 1992, she was granted parole after serving seven years of her sentence. However, her troubles were far from over.
In 2010, Vetri was arrested for attempted murder after allegedly shooting her boyfriend during an argument. She was charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and mayhem. Vetri later pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to nine years in prison.
Throughout her life, Vetri’s talent and beauty were overshadowed by her personal struggles. Her story serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of drug addiction and the importance of seeking help when struggling with mental health issues.
Victoria Vetri’s personal life was not without its share of struggles. In 1978, she was convicted of attempted voluntary manslaughter after shooting her then-boyfriend, Hugh Ronald Kramer. The incident occurred at her Benedict Canyon home in Los Angeles, where Vetri claimed that Kramer had physically assaulted her. Despite her claim of self-defense, Vetri was found guilty and sentenced to nine years in prison.
Vetri’s time in prison was difficult, and she struggled to adjust to life behind bars. However, she was able to turn her life around while incarcerated, earning her GED and taking college courses. She was released after serving just over three years of her sentence.
After her release, Vetri struggled to find work in Hollywood, and her career never fully recovered from the incident. She made a few more film and TV appearances but ultimately decided to leave the entertainment industry behind.
In her later years, Vetri lived a relatively quiet life out of the public eye. She was married and had a daughter, but little is known about her personal life beyond that. She passed away in September 2020 at the age of 75, leaving behind a legacy as both a talented actress and a woman who overcame great adversity.
Sadly, on September 23, 2021, Victoria Vetri passed away at the age of 76. Despite her troubled life, she will be remembered for her talent and her contributions to the entertainment industry.
