Dr. Crespo, cancer researcher, found dead in NY’s Upper East Side hospital bathroom


(Editor’s note: UPDATE- Initially, officials didn’t say Dr. Crespo overdosed. However, within hours, they said there was a cup found near his body and now they think it could be an overdose of drugs. There were a couple others in our series where an overdose was the alleged cause of death, but in some of those cases, loved ones did not believe this to be true.)

On Sunday afternoon, the medical researcher Miguel Crespo, 40, was found dead in an eighth-floor bathroom of an upper east side hospital, police said. Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of Dr. Crespo. His death marks the 79th doctor death in our unintended series.

Police found Crespo unconscious on the floor at about 2:50 p.m. in Weill Cornell Medical Center, at E. 68th St. and York Ave. Alongside his body they found vomit. The city medical examiner will determine how he died.1

“Crespo joined Weill Cornell Medical College in 2011, doing postdoctoral research on colon cancer in a stem cell lab, according to his hospital bio and his LinkedIn profile. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Complutense University of Madrid.” 1 He also spoke five languages (English, French, Spanish, German and Persian).

This reminds us of the case of the famous stem cell cancer researcher/doctor (the head of a famous clinic in the UK) who was found dead in a rubber fetish suit, with a mask on his face, hanging from a tree. His family said he’d just gone to walk the dog. (The dog survived.)

Crespo was beloved by all. We are so sorry for his family’s loss.
