Former Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst has died at the age of 30 after falling from her high-rise New York City apartment.
Cheslie’s body was found at 7:05 a.m. Sunday 30 January on the sidewalk just outside the Orion Condominium building in Manhattan where she resided.
The attorney’s devastated family confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday, and the New York Department later confirmed that her death was by suicide.
Her family released a statement that read: “Her great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength. She cared, she loved, she laughed and she shined.
“Cheslie embodied love and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA and as a host on ExtraTV.
“But most importantly as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague — we know her impact will live on.”
