The 2019 winner of the Miss USA contest has died in what appears to be a suicide.

According to Sky News, 30-year-old Cheslie Kryst fell from an apartment building on West 42nd Street, Manhattan.  Her body was found on Sunday morning when she pronounced dead at the scene.

As well as winning Miss USA in 2019, Ms. Kryst finished in the top ten of the Miss Universe competition in the same year.  She made history in doing so, as NBC New York reported that it was the first time that three black women were the reigning Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss America.

Ms Kryst was also a successful lawyer who worked for a law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Her friends, family and co-workers have all expressed their devastation at her death.
