The medical examiner has concluded the cause and manner of Avonte Oquendo's death to be undetermined.

The medical examiner has ruled the cause and manner of Avonte Oquendo‘s death as undetermined.

The 14-year-old was last seen at the Center Boulevard School in Long Island City across the street from the East River in October. Almost four months later his remains were found washed up in College Point.

There have been conflicting reports on how the Rego Park teen, who cannot verbally communicate and is supposed to be supervised at all times, managed to leave the school.

Following the identification of her son, Vanessa Fontaine filed suit against the City of New York in Manhattan Supreme Court demanding the NYPD release records relating to the disappearance of Avonte.

Family attorney David Perecman also said he will be filing a $25 million negligence claim against the city, focused on the Department of Education, for wrongful death.
