The Fayette County Coroner said Melissa Smiley, 37, died Monday at UK Hospital in Lexington.

Police said she had been on life support since last Thursday when she was reportedly sexually abused by a co-worker while she was unconscious after passing out.

Investigators said Smiley had a medical condition that made her prone to passing out. 

Police said when she passed out at Fillies Gentleman's Club on Winchester Road, co-worker, Clyde Sexton, 71, of Lexington, sexually abused her instead of calling for help.

Police said the reported abuse happened before the club was open for business.

Investigators said the reported incident was caught on surveillance video.

Police said Smiley was unconscious for 20-to-30 minutes before authorities were called.

Paramedics said Smiley didn't have a pulse when they arrived.

An autopsy was performed Tuesday.  No results have been released yet.

Sexton pleaded not guilty to sexual assault charges during his initial court appearance in Fayette District Court last Friday.

He is out of jail on $5,000 bond.
