Ted Koppel’s son, 40, found dead in NYC apartment

Andrew Koppel was declared dead at around 1:30 a.m. Monday in the Washington Heights apartment, Detective John Sweeney said. A medical examiner would determine the cause of death.

Koppel worked for the law department at the city Housing Authority, the agency said Tuesday. They would make no other comment.

He was the 40-year-old son of former ABC anchor Ted Koppel.

From what I am in reading in reports it seems his death may have been from drinking too much alcohol on an empty stomach. Whatever the case may be it is a sad story. Andrew Koppel lives in Queens, New York with his girlfriend and their daughter.

An autopsy is being done to confirm the cause of death, at this time foul play has not been suspected.
