The medical examiner is working to find a cause of death.
“The victim’s father has informed investigators that he will be making a statement in the coming days regarding the death of his daughter, and is requesting privacy at this time.”
Victoria Siegel may have died from a drug overdose, according to Mail Online. The second eldest of eight children may have been abusing drugs due to depression. According to the report, David and JacQueline Siegel were recently on Celebrity Wife Swap, where they admitted that they didn’t spend a great deal of time with their eight children.
“Jackie Siegel, 49, swapped her luxurious life in sunny Florida for a ranch in Oklahoma City on ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ and moved in with former Party Of Five star Jeremy London, 42. On arriving at the ranch, Jackie revealed to the Mallrats actor that she is ‘scared of babies’ and not sure what to do with an infant – having never had to care for her own alone. Meanwhile London’s wife requested that David spend more quality time with his children and arranged a camping trip so the Westgate Resorts businessman could focus less on material possessions.”
You may recognize the extremely wealthy couple from The Queen Of Versailles which aired in 2012. The family became famous when the couple decided that they wanted to build the “largest home in America.”
After news that Victoria Siegel had died hit the internet, Jackie took to her Twitter account to request privacy during this difficult time.
It is with great sadness that we ask you to respect our privacy during this tragic time and the loss of our beloved daughter, Victoria.
