We are sad to learn about the passing of Cheslie Kryst. She was only 30-years-old when she took her own life.

According to TMZ, the former Miss USA, who won her crown in 2019, passed away at her home in midtown on 42nd street. Paramedics responded to a call and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

She lived on the 9th floor of the building and jumped from “high up in the building.” Sadly, she did not survive the fall. Her death is being ruled a suicide.

Kryst was Miss North Carolina before winning Miss USA in 2019. She was an attorney and worked as a correspondent for Extra as well.

Her tragic passing is certainly shocking and our thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
