West Allis, WI – Since first breaking the news about former CBS 58 Anchor Asa George, 34, untimely death, Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) has learned that her father had tried to contact George for four days before police were actually called by her aunt to check on her niece’s welfare at her residence, according to the Milwaukee Medical Examiner’s Office preliminary report released to local media outlets, including CBS 58. Firefighters also arrived at the scene and entered the home through a window at the 2300 block of S. 58th St. and found her decomposing body in the bathroom tub full of water.
The preliminary medical examiner’s report says, that family members told investigators that George had an alcoholic addiction and had been forced to take treatment without her consent. Her aunt also confirmed to investigators that George had lost several jobs over her addiction to alcohol.
Several empty bottles of vodka and prescription medication was found at her residence. Also, the report says, investigators found the inside of the house in a messy condition with blood and feces. Her dog was found alive, but malnourished, according to investigators.
Media outlets are reporting that George died from an accidental death, but the medical examiner is waiting for toxicology results to determine cause of death.
It hasn’t been determined how long George had been deceased, but the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has sealed the case pending the outcome of the autopsy results.
George’s brother in his Facebook account confirmed on Saturday, September 7 that she had passed away a day earlier.
Police went to George’s residence on September 6 before 11:00 a.m. on Friday and discovered her body.
