Cheslie Kryst, who won the Miss USA crown in 2019, is dead after a Sunday morning fall from her high-rise home in New York City … Olasmediatv.com has confirmed.
NYPD responded to a 911 call at 7:13 AM to Cheslie’s midtown apartment building on 42nd Street. Officers and paramedics responded, but she was pronounced dead on the scene. Police are investigating, but they believe Cheslie — who lived on the 9th floor — jumped from high up in the building.
She was last seen on the 29th-floor terrace of the building … according to the NY Post, which was first to report Cheslie’s death.
Just a few hours before her death, Cheslie posted a photo of herself on Instagram with the caption, “May this day bring you rest and peace.”
Kryst took home the top honors at the Miss USA pageant back in 2019 as Miss North Carolina. She was an attorney, and after winning the title, she also worked as a correspondent for Extra.
She used her Miss USA platform to speak out about criminal justice reform. She once joined us on “Olasmediatv.com Live” to discuss that very topic.
She reportedly left a note Sunday morning, stating she was leaving all her belongings to her mother.
Cheslie was just 30 years old.
