Woman who fought to change law gets high honor

The mother of Amanda Wienckowski, the 20-year-old woman whose naked, frozen body was found in a garbage tote in buffalo in 2009, has received a high honor.

Amanda's mother, Leslie Brill-Meserole, has fought tirelessly for justice and to change the law to make improperly disposing of a corpse a felony. No one was ever charged in Amanda's death, which was ruled an overdose.

To thank Leslie for her efforts in getting Amanda Lynn's Law passed, Governor Andrew Cuomo sent Leslie a plaque and the pen he used to sign the legislation into law.
