New York cop blocker Adam Rupeka and his girlfriend Jennifer Ogburn, who were on the run after being charged with sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl who was known to the couple, were found dead in a Tijuana hotel room, the State Department has confirmed.
The Times Union is reporting the cause of death to be a drug overdose.
“We can confirm the deaths of U.S. citizens Adam Rupeka and Jennifer Ogburn in Tijuana, Mexico. The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana is providing consular assistance. For questions about the circumstances of their death and the investigation, we refer you to Mexican authorities. Out of respect for the families of Mr. Rupeka and Ms. Ogburn during this difficult time, we have no further comment.” said a State Department official.
The girl Rupeka is accused of sexually abusing will not be identified here, although she has been identified by “Ademo Freeman,” the founder of copblock.org.
Rupeka made internet infamy last year after flipping off a cop, which eventually led to him getting pepper sprayed after resisting arrest.
