Fall Victim Was Bound for Rehab

Carlisle Brigham, the 29-year-old woman who died from a slip down the stairs of 191 Orchard Street on Monday, was on the verge of entering rehab, The Post reports. According to the paper’s sources, Ms. Brigham’s father — who served under Mayor Ed Koch — was flying into the city to help her cope with her drinking, which had become a major concern. The Times also has more details on Ms. Brigham, who is described as a talented “starlet” who was “a natural fit with the society Web sites that featured photos of her snapped at galas, charity events and gallery openings.” Less than an hour before she was found dead, she spoke with her father.
