The death of the 17-year-old daughter of the U.S. Ambassador to Thailand was ruled an accident by the Medical Examiner's office. Nicole John fell off the 25th floor ledge of an apartment building in Herald Square last Friday morning; the Post reports, "Toxicology tests ... aren't expected for weeks." The 25-year-old tenant had invited John and others to his place for an after-party while they were at the Meatpacking District club Tenjune, which is now under fire for apparently allowing the underage teen into the club with her fake Brazilian ID.
John, who was supposed to start classes at Parsons at the New School this week, had written on her blog, "I have a brazilian ID that was made here in NYC and it’s really good, it’s never been rejected." However, the Daily News reports, "The only IDs that are acceptable as proof of age at New York City hot spots are U.S. state-issued or Canadian government IDs or a passport, said Michael Jones of the State Liquor Authority." Jones said, "A Brazilian ID doesn't qualify."
Tenjune is reportedly facing a criminal probe to see how John was allowed entry and whether she was served alcohol. Jones told the News, "If the allegations are true ... the SLA will vigorously prosecute those cases which can result in the revocation of the club's liquor license."
