A 19-year-old college student was found dead this morning in the lobby of 125 E. 12th St., according to published reports.
The Post reports:
A doorman discovered Jocelyn Pascucci — a Stony Brook University student from East Meadow — unconscious in the lobby of the building at East 12th Street and Third Avenue just before 5 am.
She had been bar-hopping in the neighborhood and drinking heavily, which may have exacerbated her heart condition, law enforcement officials said.
Pascucco, a Marine Vertebrate Biology major, got separated from friends and walked a short distance to the apartment building, wearing only one shoe, police sources said.
A doorman reportedly let her into the building because she looked "cold and drunk."
The Daily News has more information.
Jocelyn and her friends spent the first part of the evening at a concert at Webster Hall, family members said. They hit a few bars afterward, but she soon got separated from her group.
Her last stop was a bar just down the block from where she collapsed, police sources said.
Richard Pascucci said he and his wife had just driven to Stony Brook to help their daughter with laundry.
"We made cookies for her and brought them to her for Valentine's Day," he said. "We always used to go fishing. I’m going to miss that."
Several media outlets have posted Jocelyn's photo from Stony Brook's website.
