Fire chief’s daughter found dead

Alexandra Ceko, the 19-year-old daughter of Lake Valley Fire Chief John Ceko, was found dead in her Tahoe Keys home Sunday night.

The cause of death is under investigation, and police would offer no comment on whether there were any signs of foul play.

South Lake Tahoe Police investigators said a friend of Alexandra Ceko called police from the home just before 7 p.m. The friend said he found an unresponsive Ceko lying in her bed. Ceko was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators estimated the time of death was within 10 hours of the discovery of the body. No other residents of the house were home at the time, police said. Chief Ceko is reportedly out of the country.
