Family of Young Girl Found Dead Still Seeking Answers

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – The family of Amanda Wienckowski is planning a fundraiser to pay for a second autopsy after exhuming the twenty year old's body.

Wienckowski's frozen and naked body was found in a garbage tote earlier this year. The cause of death was determined to be an accidental overdose of drugs, but the family is convinced that she was killed.

Donations will be collected next weekend.
