Waiting for answers on pregnant teen's autopsy report

Posted: Updated:

LANSINGBURGH N.Y. - Family and friends of 19-year-old Vanessa Milligan are awaiting answers on the expecting mother's autopsy report.

An autopsy has been completed on Milligan, but officials have not yet released information that may give the family a better understanding of what happened to Vanessa prior, or during Thursday's late night fire. She was nine months pregnant was found. 

The fire at the 5th Avenue home in Troy is being considered suspicious in nature, but there is still no word on the cause. That's where family members say the teenager lived with her grandmother who lost her battle with cancer on Thursday, just hours before fire crews were called to the home. 

Fire Chief Tom Garrett tells us he believes the fire started on the first floor rear apartment. Family members say the teenager lived with her grandmother who lost her battle with cancer the same day fire crews were called to the home.

Police are an active part of this investigation and we are waiting on an official release on the case as early as today. Check back with NEWS10 ABC for updates.
