FTVLive had told you that a former Milwaukee Anchor was found dead in her home last week.
Now, her death is being ruled to be from accidental causes, according to a Milwaukee County medical examiner's report that said a final ruling will depend on pending toxicology tests.
Asa George, 34, had reported for WITI-TV and WDJT-TV. On Friday morning, a relative called police and asked that they check on George's welfare at her house in the 2300 block of S. 58th St.
According to the medical examiner's report:
Officers and firefighters found George's decomposing body inside a bathtub filled with water. The house was messy and covered with blood and feces, and a malnourished boxer dog was in the home.
Positive identification was delayed as examiners awaited dental records from Ohio, where George had once worked as a TV anchor in Dayton.
Relatives told investigators that George had battled a serious alcoholism problem for years. Two empty vodka bottles and numerous prescription medications also were found in the home.
George's aunt told investigators that George had lost several jobs over her drinking problem and had been treated numerous times, against her will, but continued abusing alcohol.
The report indicates that the death was not attributable to drowning or a laceration to her George's head.
George's father, who lives in California, expressed concern to investigators that there might have been foul play involved because his daughter had spoken of some kind of harassment.
