Dr. Kiersten Cerveny, a married mother of three from Manhasset, New York was found unconscious in an apartment building early on October 4, following a night of drinking and using cocaine.
The 38-year-old doctor, who friends described as devoted to her children and charity work had left a Lower East Side club with Marc Johnson, a friend and TV producer, and gone to the building to see suspected drug dealer James (Pepsi) Holder around 4:25 a.m.
Four hours later, surveillance video showed Johnson and Holder dragging Cerveny’s body into the lobby before fleeing the scene although one of the men called 911 for help.
When the cops and paramedics arrived, she was given CPR before being rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital, but she later died.
