RIP to Miss US 2019, Attorney, Blogger, and Extra TV host, Cheslie Kryst. She committed suicide this morning jumping from her NYC apartment building. She was 30 years old.
The only form of communication that was left was a note Kryst wrote left in her apartment detailing to ‘leave everything to her mother’.
Her family released this statement about her unexpected death
“In devastation and great sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved Cheslie,” the statement said.
“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 EXTRA. But most importantly, as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague – we know her impact will live on,” her family said.
