Buffalo, NY (WKBW) -- After the urging of a judge, Erie County and the City of Buffalo agreed on Tuesday to release body parts belonging to Amanda Wienckowksi, whose body was found frozen in a garbage tote in January, 2009.
The medical examiner ruled the death an accidental drug overdose, but the family believes the 20-year-old was murdered.
A second autopsy indicates homicide, according to the family's attorney, Steven Cohen.
A private autopsy on Amanda was conducted earlier this year by a California pathologist, who will come to Buffalo on June 2 to analyze Amanda's heart, trachea and liver, which were withheld by the county and not buried with Amanda.
Dr. Silvia Comparini found indications that Amanda was murdered, but cannot make a final ruling until the body parts are analyzed.
