Former America's Next Top Model (ANTM) contestant Mirjana Puhar was killed in what appeared to be a triple homicide yesterday.
Her boyfriend, Jonathan Alvarado, 23, and his roommate Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia, 21, was also found dead.
TMZ reported that Puhar had just moved in with the pair.
Puhar was on the most recent season of the popular reality TV series and was eliminated in the 10th episode.
Police have arrested a 19-year-old suspect Emmanuel Jesus Rangel, who is said to have known the victims.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in North Carolina said that officers discovered the body of the three victims.
The murders are believed to be drug-related, according to the law enforcement officials.
Puhar was a Serbian refugee who arrived in the United States with her family at the age of five. She then began modelling at the age of 12.
ANTM host Tyra Banks and judge J. Alexander tweeted their condolences.
The season's winner Keith Carlos also also expressed his sadness at her death.
