The Department of Justice announced today that an adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin died in an accident in his hotel room last year.
Mikhail Lesin, 57, helped create the English-language news operation "Russia Today."
The Chief Medical Examiner said that Lesin died as a result of blunt force injuries to his head, with blunt force injuries to his neck, torso and extremities, with "acute ethanol intoxication."
Put simply? Lesin was drunk, he fell and hit his head, and he died.
The DOJ said that evidence shows Lesin entering his hotel room, alone, on the morning of Nov. 4, 2015, after days of "excessive consumption of alcohol."
His body was found the next morning, officials said.
