    Police: Girl, 8, found dead in Buffalo-area home

    Authorities say they're investigating the death of an 8-year-old girl inside her suburban Buffalo home.

    Police in Amherst say relatives checking on the family's welfare found Bianca Cartagena's body around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.

    Her 31-year-old mother was found in a shed on the property with a self-inflicted injury. She's being treated at a Buffalo hospital. Her name hasn't been released.

    I wonder why the little girl was separated from the mother in the first place. From the article is doesn't sound like the reletives trusted the little girl being with the mother in the first place if they went to check on her wellbeing.

    I also wonder where the father is?

    Awaiting tox reports sounds like LE perhaps suspects some sort of poisoning.

    Poisoning, could be. In the video interview and article he states the mother had a self-inflicted illness, not injury. That choice of words says alot, jmo. Also, in the article, the little girl, Bianca, had no visible signs of trauma.

    "Bianca's aunt, Casie Croff, said, "She had been completely covered with blankets over her head."

    "Candace writes, "I have no recollection of Bianca even being at the house with me from that point on. All I know is that I wanted to die and kept taking pills each time I would wake up."

    "...some findings in the autopsy report, one of which states that the 8-year-old had the drug GHB in her system, but it doesn't state how much"

    ''The Erie County Medical Examiner's Office has concluded that ''Bianca Cartagena, the eight-year-old girl from Amherst found dead in her mother's home last fall, died of asphyxiation.

    But the coroner's findings have raised more questions than answers.

    Mother found guilty of murdering 8 year-old daughter

    ----------------------------

    The prosecution said Cartagena was in a jealous rage, and that her marriage and her relationship with her daughter Bianca were failing.
    They argued that Cartagena killed Bianca after she started spending more time with her father and his girlfriend.
