Out of her mom's house at age 11. Out of school in the sixth grade. Onto drugs in her teens. And into prostitution soon after that, according to a childhood friend. Finally, last weekend, someone threw her dead and mutilated body out of acar on a Cold Spring highway, and it seems she had not a single loved one who knew she was missing.

After all, no one else seemed to have missed her. Allen, a 31-year-old single mom from Price Hill who grew up in Bolotta's Clifton neighborhood, is trying to raise money to cremate her friend.

But after dropping out of Fairview Elementary in sixth grade, with no one forcing her back to school, Allen said her friend started down a deadly road into hard drug use.
