A New York City woman bragged about her whiskey-infused rooftop escapades on Instagram just a week before she drunkenly fell to her death, police say.
Kasey Jones, 26, reportedly died Tuesday around 2:20 a.m. while attempting to climb down her fire escape into a friend’s apartment. Cops say they believe she was intoxicated at the time, although an official autopsy has not yet been conducted.
Hours after the tragic fall, several liquor bottles could still be seen on the rooftop near the fire escape ladder, including a bottle of Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whisky and a bottle of Tanqueray London Dry Gin.
“They drink up there, that’s what they do,” said Frances Guerrero, 34, who said the girls access the roof by using the fire escape to not trip the fire alarm linked to the door in the stairwell.
“I used to climb the fire escape too, It’s very slippery when wet, and it was raining last night” she said. “When you are inebriated you don’t use your head.”
In one eerie photo, posted a week before the fall, a friend expressed concern, saying the photos “scare the bejeesus out of me.” Jones replied, “Well I have a lot of whiskey to help me out.”
“I feel sad. She was so young,” a neighbor tells the Post. “Yesterday I saw her going out with the bike... She said hi to me. It pains my heart.”
