According to the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner, the death was unintentional.
Investigators suspected, Dax Tejera, an executive producer of This Week on ABC who died in December, choked to death while drunk.
The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner said, Dax Tejera, 37, passed away on December 23 from “asphyxia owing to blockage of airway by food bolus worsening acute alcohol intoxication.”
The office claims that the death was accidental.
Tejera passed away in December, according to a memo from ABC News president Kim Godwin that was distributed to workers at the time.
Tejera is survived by his wife, Veronica Tejera, and their two children, Sofia, two, and Ella, seven months. On the same night Tejera died, cops were called to the hotel where he and Veronica were staying near Grand Central Terminal because there were unattended children.
Based on the Deputy Commissioner Public Information Office of the New York Police Department, Veronica was jailed on two counts of “acting in a manner detrimental to a kid.”
As stated by the agency, the two young girls were alone in a hotel room for a long time.
The mother of two claimed that she made a “bad decision” by leaving the kids unattended.
