Toni Anderson's family planning to file lawsuits in her death

The family of Toni Anderson plans to file lawsuits in her death.

The 20-year-old was reported missing in January. She was last seen leaving a QuikTrip in North Kansas City. In March, her car was pulled from the Missouri River near Parkville.

“The cause of death is hypothermia and drowning, the manner of death is accidental and the contributing factors are ethanol, cocaine and amphetamine intoxication,” Kansas City police said in May, after releasing Anderson’s cause of death.

Anderson was pulled over at 4:25 a.m. on Jan. 15, by a North Kansas City police officer.

“The North Kansas City Police Department has reviewed the video and the circumstances surrounding Ms. Anderson’s January 15 traffic stop. Based on this review, we believe that the officer’s actions were reasonable,” the statement said.

Liz Anderson, Toni’s mother, said she was not yet able to disclose who would be the target of the pending lawsuits.

“So many people failed Toni that night,” Liz Anderson told KMBC’s Donna Pitman.
