New possibilites considered in Wienckowski death

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Amanda Wienckowski died better than two years ago, and the original report suggested a drug overdose as the cause.

According to the Buffalo News, authorities are now entertaining the idea that the known drug addict and prostitute might have died of asphyxiation, possibly caused by rough sex with a much larger man. Original autopsy results did not indicate signs of asphyxiation, but new autopsy results are expected to be released soon.

District Attorney Frank Sedita claims that if new evidence surfaces, he would be willing to review the case.
