Pascucci had a serious heart condition and had been drinking alcohol at area bars with friends before her death, which may have exacerbated her ailment, a police source said.

A doorman at the building on 12th Street saw her walking outside with one shoe in frigid temperatures after she got separated from her friends, and brought her inside because she looked intoxicated, the source said.

No trauma was found on her body, the source said.
