Amanda Lankey's body was found in the Manistee National Forest in 2004.

FLAT ROCK, Mich. (WZZM) - A West Michigan teenager, murdered nearly nine years ago, will finally get a proper burial next week. Detectives recently released the last remains of 13-year-old Amanda Lankey to her family.

Lankey's mother says she will be buried in Flat Rock, which is south of Detroit, on Monday.

The teenager's family is still waiting on court dates for Candace Wallace-Baumgarter and her son, who are charged with perjury in the case. Wallace-Baumgartner is the sister of Cecil Wallis Sr. who was considered a person of interest in the case before he committed suicide last year.

Lankey's body was found in a wooded area in June 2004, about two weeks after she disappeared during a sleepover at Wallis' home near White Cloud.
