Nicole John, US Ambassador Eric John’s daughter is dead at the young age of 17. Police are saying that after a late night of partying, Nicole fell out of her 25th floor window at her Herald Towers apartment in Manhattan. While not a lot of information is known about John biographically we do know that the young beauty was set to start her studies at Parsons School of Design this fall.

It was just shortly after 4 a.m. that police discovered her body on a third floor ledge of her apartment building. John was shoeless and next to her body was a camera that police believe is an indication that Nicole was trying to capture a photo when she accidentally fell out of her window.

Robert Pena, a building engineer is said to have discovered her body. He explains, “I found her there. I looked at her and she was so young. It was not a pretty sight. She was just a baby.” So young, indeed!

I know what you are thinking because I thought the exact same thing. So what was she doing partying and could somebody be in trouble for serving this obviously underage girl alcohol? The NY Daily News is reporting that John had allegedly been partying in the meatpacking district in NYC and got into a bar with a fake ID. Not only that but at a party held at an apartment of 25-year-old Ilan Nassimi, John was apparently present. As a result reports are saying that Nassimi was arrested on scene. He is said to have been charged with a misdemeanor for providing booze to underage individuals. A police official said, “We are discussing what happened that night with that gentleman.”

Our thoughts go out to Eric John and Nicole’s family and friends close to her.

    To die at age 17 by intoxication? Who taught her that? The fault lies with ‘father’ Erik John; a protective concerned father? No.
    As US, Pres.Bush appointed Ambassador to Thailand, Mr. John has never taken any measures to protect US Citizen-Victims of Thai ‘society.’ He seems more interested in pleasing Thai policies and his boss Sec.State Ms.Clinton. Mr. John was the imputus behind releasing $20M of US military aid to the Thai Junta that seized power.
    Citizen children often have falling accidents
    from Bangkok high-rise buildings and Thai Schools and will not move toward student safety nor responsibility for the result of the student’s death. [they may offer cremation money to the aggreaved parent.] Mr. John takes no concern no voice for this under his US. Ambassadorship.
    Citizen children are regularly abducted with the aid of Thai Police by a distraught Thai mother [parental abduction], illegal under US and UN laws; Thailand will write no laws against this in self-impingment, nor admit it, but regularly permits it [as do 8 of the 10 ASEAN members]. Thus, the US Citizen child lives as a hostage, denied his US Rights and US Father’s Rights and..Mr. John, as a ‘father’ is indifferent to a living death for the exploited child.
