According to a source speaking to TMZ, the reason for the horrific stabbing death of the reality dating star was for the worst reason one could possibly think of. Pearson, the source says, was simply being too loud for a resident of his apartment complex.
Partying with his girlfriend wildly at 2 AM on Sunday morning, Pearson became loud. The source says he was confronted by a resident on a balcony who yelled back at Chris.
It was then that Pearson made a fateful decision. Deciding to enter the building to confront the person who took issue with his noise level, Pearson wound up fatally stabbed.
Authorities soon arrived, but the perpetrator had already fled the scene. Pearson was rushed to a local hospital, but passed away at approximately 3:30 AM.
Not usually said to be a confrontational person, Pearson decided for whatever reason that this time was different. Police are currently investigating and are searching for witnesses who might have seen or heard something. No arrests have been made thus far, but the TMZ source says that police are confident that they’ll catch the killer.
Chris Pearson was just 25. He was a professional DJ and a fan favorite during the first season of EOTB. Chris was memorialized on the Ex On the Beach Instagram feed.
