New York Police announced that: “Former Miss America, Chesley Crist, passed away on Sunday morning, at the age of 30, after committing a suicide.”
A police department spokesman said: “Christ jumped from a 60-story building on the island of Manhattan, where she was staying, according to CNN.
Chesley Crist won the Miss America title in 2019, while representing North Carolina.
Krist was part of a historic moment when the titles of “Miss Universe”, “Miss America”, “Miss Teen USA” and “Miss USA” went to women of color.
In contrast to her title as Miss America, Crist’s family indicated in an official statement that she was working “as a lawyer fighting for social justice in her country, and obtained 3 degrees from two universities, and as a broadcaster on the “Extra” channel, and she also ran a fashion blog on the Internet. “.
They said: “It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Chesley. Her great light has inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength. She cared, loved, laughed, and shone.”
Krist has used her television work to speak publicly about the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which was launched in June 2020, against US police brutality in the wake of the killing of the black citizen, George Floyd.
A source told the New York Post that Chesley Crist left a note behind saying that she wanted to leave everything to her mother.
Hours before her death, Krist shared her last post on her account on the “Instagram” social networking site, in which she says: “I hope this day brings you comfort and peace.”
