According to TMZ, The Bachelor season 14 contestant Lex McAllister has been pronounced dead and her family believes it was a suicide. The police were called on Saturday, Feb. 13 after the young blonde had reportedly overdosed on prescription pills, and she passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
It’s being reported that Lex was in stable condition when she was first admitted, but as her body started to shut down, she was put on life support.
This is the second woman to commit suicide from Jake Pavelka‘s season. In 2013, Gia Allemand passed away from brain damage after she allegedly tried to hang herself.
Our thoughts are with Lex’s loved ones during this difficult time.
