Gross’ Mother, Yoga Francoise wants this to be further investigated saying, “Why would anyone in their right mind jump into a trash chute? I don’t want them to close the case. I feel worse than I did before. I have to live with their press release for the rest of my life.”

On her Facebook page, Francoise states her displeasure with being told that she will have to pay $700 for a copy of her daughter’s autopsy report.

Francoise also writes about her displeasure with Penn State University, their college police, and the coroner’s office.

NJ Advance Media reports, that “a man at Beaver Terrace Apartments allegedly gave Justine a ‘smoke’ before she panicked and ran to the top floor of the building, and jumped down the garbage shoot, falling 11 stories into a dumpster below.”

Gross, from Summit, New Jersey was only 19-years-old at the time of her death.
