ABC News anchor Ted Koppel’s son’s death has been deemed an accident due to a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol

Beloved ABC News anchor Ted Koppel is in for more heartbreak now that new details regarding his son’s May 31 death have been released: Andrew Koppel’s death has been ruled an accident due to a lethal combo of drugs and alcohol.

“He died from acute intoxication due to the combined effects of alcohol; heroin; cocaine; diazepam, the generic form of the painkiller Valium; and Levamisole, a drug used to cut other drugs,” the NYC medical examiner’s spokersperson confirmed to the AP June 18.

The circumstances behind the 40-year-old’s accidental death are still shrouded in mystery. He was last seen bar-hopping with a man named Russell Wimberly, a man he had met at a Manhattan bar that day, before heading to Russell’s apartment. Andrew reportedly wanted to take a nap because he wasn’t feeling well and, six hours later, was found unconscious and unmoving by Belinda Caban, another apartment occupant. He was later pronounced dead by paramedics.

Andrew leaves behind his longtime girlfriend, Ilona Lieberman, and his daughter Alice.
