A woman who jumped to her death from a skyscraper in New York City on Sunday morning has been identified as former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst.

Kryst, who had an apartment on the ninth floor of the building on West 42nd Street in midtown Manhattan, leaped from the high-rise around 7:15am and was found dead on the sidewalk beneath the 60-story hi-rise.
She had last been seen on one of the building's terrace, up on the 29th-floor.
Born in Jackson, Michigan, to a white, Polish-American father and her mother, a black American and former Mrs. North Carolina US winner, April Simpkins, Kryst graduated from the Honors College and the University of South Carolina.
She went on to graduate from the Darla Moore School of Business and Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she was involved in a number of activities, including the National Black Law Students Association, according to her LinkedIn page.
