Rest In Peace, Cheslie Kryst.
We previously reported that the former Miss USA reportedly passed away by suicide after jumping from high rise building in Manhattan. Kryst’s mother, April released a statement about her daughter for the first time.
“I have never known a pain as deep as this. I am forever changed,” April wrote. “Today, what our family and friends privately knew was the cause of death of my sweet baby girl, Cheslie, was officially confirmed. While it may be hard to believe, it’s true. Cheslie led both a public and a private life. In her private life, she was dealing with high-functioning depression which she hid from everyone- including me, her closet confidant- until very shortly before her death.”

Cheslie was loved widely, and will be deeply missed. We send out condolences to her friends, family and loved ones. May she rest peacefully.
