Dr. Kiersten Cerveny Case: ‘Yes, I Admit I Dragged Her Body Down the Stairway’

We can see at least 3 reasons in this picture for a doctor to not be a cocaine user

In New York City a television producer has confessed in federal court that, well yes, by golly, he did indeed dump the body of an unconscious doctor, on the morning she died of a drug overdose in a Manhattan apartment. Who told?

Marc Henry Johnson

Marc Henry Johnson: movie producer, partier, drug provider, lady OD-body-dumper

The man, Marc Henry Johnson, told Judge Jesse M. Furman that just before daybreak, on the morning of October 5 2015, he helped carry the body of Doctor Kiersten R Cerveny from an apartment on West 16th Street to the lobby of the building downstairs.

Doctor Cerveny was a dermatology specialist on Long Island prior to the reckless partying that killed her.

Johnson, age 52, told the court that he “panicked” when the lady doctor suddenly went limp while slumped in a chair. They had been “partying for hours” since the night before. He said he and a drug dealer named James Holder, moved the unconscious woman from Holder’s apartment and down to the lobby.

If you can’t trust a drug-pushing movie-maker to look out for you, who can you trust?

“Cerveny’s death last year stunned those who knew her in Washington Township, Gloucester County, where she grew up and graduated as valedictorian from the high school in 1995. Students voted her as “Most Studious” and “Most Likely to Succeed.” Family friends called her “the perfect child.” She graduated magna cum laude from Duke University and obtained her medical degree from Tulane University.”

Prosecutors said they would be able to prove that Johnson had purchased cocaine from Holder and offered some to Cerveny as they sat in a bar with acquaintances. Investigators learned that the wayward MD had already been doing cocaine earlier in the evening, while out on the town. Her husband Andrew was home with the kids.

Detectives learned that it was Johnson who called 911, then performed some semblance of CPR on Cerveny, before leaving her body on the floor of the lobby near the door. A security camera caught the cowardly lion running away.

The drugged-out physician, who lived with her husband and children in Manhasset and ran a small clinic in Williston Park, was taken by ambulance to Lennox Hill Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Johnson finally admitted also, that he took several actions to hide the facts of the case, and covered up the fact that Holder routinely used the apartment as a drug house. Johnson faces a possible prison term of 2 years. Holder has not yet been sentenced.

And so in the end, the foolish Doctor Kiersten Cerveny – weekend partier, binge drinker and cocaine sniffer –was 38 years old on the day she was buried, and left 3 small children crying on the lawn of the cemetery.

Moral of the story? It is entirely possible to be valedictorian in high school, a former chief of dermatology at Brooklyn Hospital,  and still be dumber than a box of rocks behind closed doors.

Here’s another look into this lab coat lunatic’s case:

    Reason incidences like this happen dysfunctional society. Lots of psychopath doctors turned sociopaths in Ontario, Canada.

    It’s a mental illness called Anosognosia it is a severe form of denial. Anosognosia is quite different than simple or temporary denial. It is not simply denial of a problem, but the genuine inability to recognize that the problem exists. Usually this is caused by brain damage and/or FEAR!
