Former Miss USA Jumps to Her Death


Cheslie Kryst, Miss USA 2019, jumped to her death from her West 42nd street apartment building in New York...

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, 30, was a lawyer and also worked as a correspondent for the entertainment show Extra. She won the Miss USA pageant in 2019.
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.

This is so so so so sad. Mental health issues are real. Whatever this woman was dealing with COULD have been treated with time. She was a gorgeous accomplished woman. Rest In Peace. First thing came to my mind is that she was having a bad breakup with somebody...but who knows. Very sad.

She had a history of mental health issues.. Depression is a muthafugga and does not discriminate. People on the outside will say she had it all but she didn't have peace of mind.
May she rest in Heavenly peace now.
And anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts please seek help.

This was so tragic...She posted a beautiful pic on IG before she jumped... Read something poignant "people don't fake mental illness. They fake happiness" Rest peacefully!

There are some very tasteless pictures floating around of the aftermath. Glad they aren't posted here. RIP. Check on your people.

I don't understand inflicting this type of pain on ones own mother.

@12:07 Maybe she didn't have a good relationship with her's?

She left everything to her mother so I doubt it.

It had absolutely nothing to do with mental health. She was extremely upset about a situation in her life. I wish all these fake ass cyber pseudo shrinks and "spiritual persons" would stop speculating, it comes off as fake and clout chasing. You know nothing hoe. Express your condolences and move on.

You said everything except, exactly what that "situation" was...So sit-u-ate yo ass down. No sane person that's upset jumps from the 29th floor

*** NEWSFLASH ***

EVERYONE is in danger of having a "history of mental illness", just like anyone who has ever gotten pissed of at work or an incident of "road rage" would be considered to have a history of violence, and anyone who has had an altercation with a spouse, partner, sibling or parent would have had a "history of domestic abuse".
Your point is null and void. And there ARE some people your little precious, caring ass is loving right NOW that may be walking around with suicidal thoughts.
A smile and a coffee was not going to save the day for this young lady.

I live on West 42nd St.. I didn't hear anything about this. Most new Apts unless it has a balcony, have windows only a couple of fingers can go through. Just for this reason.

I read that she was having problems dealing with her sexuality because she was very religious.
Bible thumpers do more harm than good to demonize ppl that are LBGTQ+.
