Never let a glamorous life fool you into thinking life is good. We all have our demons and depressions, we just hope we can keep them on the surface and managed. Not all are as lucky.
Miss USA Cheslie Kryst leaped to her death from a Midtown Manhattan high-rise Sunday.
Shortly before she jumped, Kryst posted on her Instagram page, “May this day bring you rest and peace.”
Cheslie wasn’t just a pretty face. She was a Lawyer and beloved daughter. She accomplished a great deal in her 30 years on this earth.
“In devastation and great sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved Cheslie,” Cheslie’s family said in a statement Sunday.
“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,” her family said. “But most importantly as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague — we know her impact will live on.”
Sources said Kryst left behind a note saying she wanted to leave everything to her mother, a former pageant competitor herself who was crowned Mrs. North Carolina in 2002. The note didn’t include a motive for Kryst’s actions, sources said.
