Miss USA Cheslie Kryst commits suicide at the age of 30

Cheslie Kryst, the former Miss USA 2019, committed herself at the age of 30.

According to the authorities, only a post-mortem examination will reveal if Chesley Crust’s death was the result of a suicide or an accident. The collision location has been secured by police.

A few hours before her death, the former Miss USA posted on Instagram that she hoped this day brought you’rest and tranquilly.’

The 30-year-old worked as a journalist for the entertainment channel Extra and was a lawyer. She won the Miss USA pageant in 2019 with the intention of using the platform to advocate for social and criminal justice change.

When Kryst was crowned, it represented more than just a personal triumph: it meant that three Black women were reigning Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss America for the first time.

In a statement Sunday, the nationally syndicated program “Extra” described Kryst as

“not just a vital part of our show, she was a beloved part of our Extra family and touched the entire staff. Our deepest condolences to all her family and friends.”
