Final cause of death of doctor’s wife ruled undetermined
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) - The Lexington County Coroner’s Office has released the final autopsy and toxicology findings in the death of Vanessa Brooke Biery. Biery was the wife of Dr. Adam Lazzarini, a physician that has been charged with other crimes after the death of William Player Holland in 2017. Holland died as the result of a single gunshot wound to the chest at Lazzarini’s home in the Hunters Mill area of the city of Cayce. Police believe that Lazzarini was holding the gun when Holland was shot.
Sometime after the death of Holland, Vanessa Brooke Biery, 43, was found dead in her home of unknown circumstances. Fisher said that an autopsy on Biery’s body was conducted on May 3, 2018 at MUSC in Charleston. The results of that autopsy came back quickly, however more tests needed to be done before the pathologist could determine the cause of death. Those additional tests, including the toxicology report have now come back. There was nothing conclusive in the test and they are listed as undetermined. Therefore, the official cause of Biery’s death has been ruled undetermined.
