Rest in Peace - Gia Allemand
Sometimes we lose people in our lives whose passing seems absolutely senseless. This is one of those times as actress and model Gia Allemand has passed away at the ridiculously young age of just 29. Read on for details.
Allemand, who was a contestant on Season 14 of "The Bachelor" and one of the stars of the "Ghost Trek" web series which we debuted here on Dread Central, was taken to University Hospital in New Orleans on Monday, where she never recovered. The cause of death remains a bit of a mystery, but early signs are pointing toward suicide.
MSN reports that Allemand's rep confirmed the news in a statement and provided other details. According to the statement Allemand's boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, found her Monday night in her New Orleans home after an apparent suicide attempt. Emergency medical crews were called, and they rushed Allemand to the hospital.
"Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn today," the statement said. "Ms. Allemand passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other life-long friends by her side... Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming in another official statement once available. On behalf of the family, we sincerely ask for privacy at this time."
We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Allemand's family, friends, and constituents. May you all make it through this very tragic and difficult time. Godspeed.
