McLEAN, Va. -

Two weeks after a 16-year-old McLean girl was found dead in Vienna, Fairfax County police are finally identifying her as Emylee Lonczak, an 11th grader at McLean High School. Fox 5 reported on her death last week, when the principal at McLean High sent out a letter notifying families that she had died.

Now police also say she was not a runaway, but in the company of people that she knew. Fairfax County Police Officer Don Gotthardt says detectives also believe illegal narcotics may have been a factor in the case. Other than that police are revealing few details. They say they don't want to compromise their criminal investigation.

The girl's parents don't want to comment. They have posted a picture of their daughter on their front door.
