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,  leaped from the Midtown 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.

Hours before jumping, Kryst wrote on her Instagram page, ‘May this day bring you rest and peace.’ 

The model had also left a note before ending her life that stated she wanted to leave everything to her mother. 

There was no explanation for her actions. 

‘Not only beautiful but she was smart — she was a lawyer,’ a police source told the New York Post. ‘She has a life that anyone would be jealous of. … It’s so sad.’

A former winner of Miss North Carolina, Kryst won the 2019 Miss USA pageant wearing a sparkly winged outfit for the National Costume competition, in a nod to Maya Angelou’s ‘I Know Why the Caged BIrd Sings.’ 

It was the first year when the four major U.S. pageant titles were held by Black women.

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. 

She was also an associate attorney at Poyner-Spruill LLP in Charlotte between September 2017 to May 2019 working as a member of the firm’s civil litigation team.

‘Our hearts are broken. Cheslie was not just a vital part of our show, she was a beloved part of our ‘Extra’ family and touched the entire staff,’ read a statement from the show she worked on. ‘Our deepest condolences to all her family and friends.’

In a statement from representatives, Kryst’s family described her as ‘one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength.’

‘She cared, she loved, she laughed and she shined. Cheslie embodied love and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA and as a host on EXTRA. But most importantly, as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague – we know her impact will live on. As we reflect on our loss, the family asks for privacy at this time,’ the statement read.

Kryst would often like to share her feelings to her Instagram followers and was public in the knowledge that social media was all for show.

‘My Instagram is my highlight reel and I want to look my best while I share a look at my life, my fun, and the body I’m proud of. But that’s all it is. A fine-tuned glimpse into a moment in time. Don’t allow what you see on here make you forget that I’m incredibly flawed; I simply chose not to share those flaws in a photo,’ she wrote last June.

‘And definitely don’t compare your own flaws to what you see in this picture or any others on my page. It’s not fair to compare 100% of yourself, your good days, bad days, and everything in between to a highly curated fraction of me on my best days.’
