WASHINGTON – Police have officially identified the teenage girl who was found dead in Vienna and have provided some of the details surrounding her death.
Fairfax County police said in a statement on Wednesday that Emylee Lonczak, 16, was found dead the morning of Aug. 23 in the 8200 block of Madrillon Estates Drive in the Vienna area. She had previously been identified through a letter sent to families of students at McLean High School, where she would have been an 11th- grader.
Lonczak, of McLean, had been reported missing Aug. 21. Her body was found two days later, reportedly between two homes in the upscale neighborhood.
NBC Washington reports search warrant documents in the case say that before she died, Lonczak was with a person who lives in one of the homes near where she was found.
The station says Kyle Alifom is an adult who lives with his parents. The court documents reportedly say he told authorities he and Lonczak went to a party Aug. 21, and the two got a ride back to his house later.
He allegedly told a detective the two drank beer and smoked marijuana that night, and that Lonczak went into his home for a while before leaving, the station says.
Alifom has not been arrested or charged in the case.
Police added in the statement that while Lonczak was originally reported as having run away from home, they have learned that she “was voluntarily in the company of people she knew.”
Police also said that “illegal narcotics may be a factor in this investigation.” The cause of death has not yet been determined by the medical examiner, the statement said.
They are continuing to investigate.
