A woman whose body was found on a New York City street early Sunday was identified by police as lawyer Cheslie Kryst, 30, a former Miss USA who also worked as a correspondent for television’s “Extra.”
New York police said the body, which was 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.
Her family said in a statement: “In devastation and great sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved Cheslie. Her great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength.” (SOURCE: NBCNEWS)
