The acclaimed author of Go Set a Watchman was found dead this morning in her New York apartment of an apparent cocaine overdose. Lee was said to have been out on the town with Pretty Ricky and Andrew Dice Clay earlier in the week, before throwing a bash this past Thursday evening.

An unnamed source reported Lee be acting reckless, stating she’d taken 13 shots of Jim Beam whiskey off of a pair of stripper’s titties.

Lee was 89 years old.
