A little help here?

A Charley Project reader sent me this link about an apparent MWAB case. It says the body was never found. I did my standard research but can’t find any news later than 1997. Last news is they thought she was in a landfill. The mother, Angelic Burney, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in 1999, and Websleuths post I found says the grandma, Rosa Wilkerson, was convicted of being an accomplice, but I don’t know any details.

Did they find Amy’s body or not? Can any of you answer the question? If they didn’t, obviously, I’d like to add her to Charley. Balance of probabilities would make it seem like they didn’t find her, but balance of probabilities isn’t good enough for me.

    I do remember this story on the news some, back when it was taking place, but as for details, I don’t remember them. I did find 3 NYT articles on this story. The first 2 give details as to what the mother and grandmother said happened and what police believe happened…

    as of this article, dated Dec 1997, the poor little girls body still had not been found. http://www.nytimes.com/1997/12/24/nyregion/three-killings-leave-anxiety-in-a-building.html

    Hope this helps

    I thought you only posted cases when LE made a request

      Oh, heavens no. I rarely communicate with LE.

    The mother was a tad misnamed, eh?

    I just read on the New York State DOC website that Angelic Burney was released January 10th of this year. Her parole ends 2022.

    The grandmother’s last name is Downing. She also was convicted of manslaughter in 1999. She received the same sentence that her daughter did. She was also released the same day as her daughter.
