‘America’s Next Top Model’ contestant Mirjana Puhar has been murdered in a drug-related slaying, killed less than a year after she rose to fame on the show’s 21st cycle.

Tragic news below…

NBC reports:

The model was one of three people killed in a drug-related killing in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday.

Mirjana Puhar who grew up in Charlotte after her family fled war-torn Serbia, was found shot to death with two other victims, Jusmar Isiah Gonzaga-Garcia, 21, and Jonathan Cosme Alvarado, 23, in a house in the city’s Tryon Hills neighborhood Tuesday evening.

The alleged killer, Emmanuel Jesus Rangel, 23, was arrested Wednesday on three counts of first-degree murder. Police said he knew the victims and that the killings were drug related. Rangel has also been charged in connection with a murder that took place in nearby Matthews, North Carolina on Sunday, police said.
In a statement released today, a “deeply saddened”  Tyra Banks shared:
She was a vivacious and promising young woman. Our hearts and prayers go out to her loved ones.
