I know that for plural form of all names ending with "e", you can just add "n" to the end of the word. So the plural form of "Angehörige" should be "Angehörigen". But the Linguee dictionary says that it should be "Angehörige". Moreover, there are two different sample sentences, one of them using "Angehörige" as plural, and another using "Angehörigen". Here are the two sentences:

Das Paar lud alle Angehörigen der Familie zur Hochzeit ein.

Why Angehörigen?

Nur Freunde und enge Angehörige sind zur Hochzeit eingeladen.

Why Angehörige, as it is plural? :(

All your found examples are correct.

So yes, Angehörige and Angehörigen is correct plural of Angehörige/r - in the fitting case.

Like infinitezero commented, you find in e.g. Wiktionary-en (female) or Wiktionary-en (male) or Wiktionary-de:

plural in form of Angehörigen fits for

  • dative plural for strong declension both female / male
  • plural for weak declension for both female / male
  • plural for mixed declension for both female / male

plural in form of Angehörige fits for

  • nominative plural for strong declension both female / male
  • accusative plural for strong declension both female / male
