An HBO honcho and an alleged drug dealer are charged in Kiersten Cerveny’s fatal overdose, but her friend says ‘Miss X’ left her in the clutches of cocaine. “>
Two men in New York were indicted Wednesday for distributing cocaine to a Long Island doctor who fatally overdosed, but Kiersten Cervenys friend says the real culprit is a mysterious bad girl she calls Miss X.
Cerveny, 38, was found in the doorway of a Chelsea building on Oct. 5, 2015 after partying with HBO producer Marc Henry Johnson and James Holder, an alleged drug dealer. Police said in an affidavit that Holder and Johnson carried Cerveny downstairs and left her outside around 8:30 a.m. the following morning. Johnson called 911 but by the time paramedics arrived, the mother of three young children was dead.
Johnson and Holder arent charged in Cervenys death, but have been charged with drug charges and for moving Cervenys body when she became unresponsive.
The worst part was that I thought that she was murdered, when I first got the information, Caron Bernstein, Cevenys friend, told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. So its just a huge relief. I dont know what it feels like to overdose, but it cant be as terrifying as getting murdered.
Bernstein was in Los Angeles when she heard about Cervenys death, then heard she was in Manhattan in the first place for a girls night out with their mutual friends. While the other women stayed back at the hotel room, Bernstein said Cerveny and a woman she would only refer to as Miss X went out.
The duo eventually found themselves at the KGB bar on the Lower East Side. A KGB employee, who said he was interviewed by police in the weeks after the death, confirmed the women were there.
