Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst jumped to her death from a New York City condo building on Sunday. 

The public information office of the New York Police Department confirmed that the body found on West 42nd Street appeared to have fallen from an elevated position and that Kryst's death was most likely the result of suicide. 

Before Cheslie Kryst was crowned Miss USA, she was a lawyer in Charlotte, N.C. In keeping with pageant rules, she moved to Manhattan. She was 30 years old. 

Police said Kryst jumped from a Manhattan apartment building and was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday morning. Her family confirmed her death in a statement:

“In devastation and great sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved Cheslie,” the statement said.

“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,” her family said.
