A 23-year-old Gerritsen Beach woman — Stefania Kalos — was found dead inside her boyfriend’s Marine Park home late on June 17, possibly as the result of a drug overdose, according to neighbors and police sources.

Emergency responders found Kalos unconscious and unresponsive inside the E. 33rd Street home between Avenues U and T at about 3:40 am, and pronounced her dead at the scene, according to authorities.

There were no obvious signs of foul play, and Kalos was known to abuse drugs, according to neighbors and police sources.

“I know the girl passed away, I know it was probably a drug overdose,” said one neighbor who asked to remain anonymous.

Another neighbor said he saw flashing lights late that Saturday night and had no idea what was going on, but was devastated to hear the news on Tuesday — the same day as the local civic’s meeting with health officials to combat opioid addiction and the heroin epidemic.

“So unfortunate what is taking place, it is harrowing,” said Robert Fried.

An investigation is ongoing and the medical examiner will determine the cause of death, officials said.
