Cheslie Kryst former Miss USA dies at 30

Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst has died.

A New York Police Department spokesperson confirmed to Insider that Kryst jumped from a 60-story building in Manhattan, where she was a resident, on Sunday morning.

Kryst, who won the Miss USA title in 2019 while representing North Carolina, was 30 years old.

In a statement Kryst's family said they know the pageant's queen "impact will live on."

"In devastation and great sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved Cheslie," it read. "Her great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength. She cared, she loved, she laughed, and she shined."

"Cheslie embodied love and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA, and as a host on EXTRA. But most importantly, as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague — we know her impact will live on. As we reflect on our loss, the family asks for privacy at this time."
