Former Bachelor contestant Alexa McAllister has died of a suspected suicide at the age of 31.
The pretty reality star, who was known as Lex, passed away early on Tuesday after being admitted to the hospital on Saturday afternoon .
A concerned friend discovered the blonde’s body after growing concerned for her safety, after Alexa had texted earlier in the day that she wanted to ‘end her life.’
The friend arrived at her home to find her surrounded by empty bottles of pills.
Tragically, Alexa is now the second contestant from her season to have taken her own life.
Gia Allemand – who was Jake’s third runner-up – hung herself in August 2013 at the age of 29.
She died in New Orleans, where she had moved for her NBA Pelicans player boyfriend Ryan Anderson.
Jake Pavelka, the star of Lex’s season, wrote on Twitter Monday; ‘I’m so sad to hear about Alexa. Such a beautiful girl. My heart breaks for her family. Covering them in prayer during this rough time.’
