Police probe death of woman found in Manhattan building

NEW YORK (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a 38-year-old Long Island dermatologist found unconscious in the vestibule of a Manhattan apartment building.

Police say Kiersten Cerveny, of Manhasset, was found at about 8:30 a.m. Sunday inside the five-story walk-up building on West 16th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood.

The woman was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner is to determine the exact cause of death.

Police gave no other details.

A 2009 New York Times wedding announcement described Cerveny as chief of dermatology at Brooklyn Hospital Center and an assistant professor of clinical dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College.
