UPDATE: Memorial Held for 13-Year-Old Girl Who Was Murdered Back in 2004

Posted: Updated:

Family members of a 13-year-old girl, who was murdered back in 2004, held a burial and memorial gathering, yesterday.

Amanda Lankey's body was found in the woods in White Cloud, in Newago County.

The Florida girl was visiting her grandparents.

Here memorial service took place yesterday, in Flat Rock.

Deputies say Lankey had been beaten to death.

They believe the girl snuck out to a friend's house to meet someone and never came back.

Investigators saved her skull and hands as evidence, and only recently released the remains.

A person of interest in the case committed suicide, in 2011.

Investigators have charged to others for lying to a Newago County Prosecutor.
