40-year-old Andrew Koppell was found dead last month at a New York City the night after he allegedly went on a heavy drinking binge. The apartment belonged to a man named Russell Wimberly, whom Koppel reportedly met at a bar the night before he died.

Andrew Koppel’s death has been ruled an accident by the New York medical examiner. Koppel had reportedly consumed a large amount of alcohol before his death and also had traces of heroin, cocaine and the generic form of Valium in his system.
