The state medical examiner concluded that her death was caused by “acute heroin intoxication.”
“She has done each and every thing she could to better herself and allowed justice to be had for the family,” Newkirk said.
Landry allegedly told Fillippenko in one message that the heroin was “twice as strong” and warned her to be careful with it, according to police.
Wageling said she was “sad for the family who lost someone dear to them” and told Landry it was her job to tell people now about the consequences of her actions.
