Incredibly sad: Aspiring model has been killed in horrific circumstances.
Recent America’s Next Top Model contestant Mirjana Puhar was killed on Tuesday, one victim in a reported triple homicide in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 19-year-old and her boyfriend Jonathan Cosme Alvarado, 23, and a friend, Jusmar Isiah Gonzaga-Garcia, 21, were reportedly found shot inside a home they shared.
Authorities said they found the bodies after a tip from a ‘source’. No further official information about the cause of their deaths has been released, but TMZ reports that gunshots were heard.
Police have now arrested 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel for the crime, charging him with 3 counts of 1st degree murder.
TMZ also report that law enforcement sources have suggested the murders were drug related and that the victims knew the killer.
Mirjana, who moved to the U.S. from Serbia with her family to escape the Kosovo War, was on the 21st cycle of the popular modelling show last year, before being eliminated in the 10th episode.
“We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic news about Mirjana Puhar. She was a vivacious and promising young woman. Our hearts and prayers go out to her loved ones.”
