    Northern Virginia bureau reporter David Culver reports a new search warrant details drug buy and others being with Emylee Lonczak on the night she died.

    A Virginia teen found dead last month was in the company of three individuals, who did not seek help for her when she "needed medical attention," according to new documents obtained by News4.

    Police bloodhounds tracked Emylee Lonczak's body to a bush between two homes in the Tysons Corner area Aug. 23, two days after her parents had reported her missing.

    A search warrant from Fairfax County Court claims that one of the last people Lonczak was with before she died lives in one of those homes -- he was identified as Kyle Alifom. 

    According to new documents obtained by News4, Alifom told police he was with Lonczak and two other men when the group left Virginia on the evening of Aug. 21 to buy illegal narcotics and use them. When they returned to Fairfax County early the next morning, the men realized Lonczak needed "medical attention ... [but] none was sought."

    Alifom had initially told police that he and Lonczak went to a party on the night of Aug. 21, and they got a ride to Alifom's home afterward from another person.

    Police told News4 they are looking through four Facebook accounts, in the search for possible photos of Lonczak from the night she died. 

    Police have searched Alifom's home, where he lives with his parents. He has not been arrested or charged.

    The cause of Lonczak's death has not yet been determined. She is survived by her parents and six brothers, including a twin.
