‘The Bachelor’ Alum Cristy Caserta Dead at 38: Report

Bachelor Nation is in mourning. The Bachelor alum Cristy Caserta died on Thursday, October 4, TMZ reports. She was 38.

According to the website, the attorney suffered an apparent seizure while attending class at a school in Sunrise, Florida. She reportedly went into cardiac arrest as her classmates called 911.

TMZ reported that first responders administered CPR before transporting Caserta to the nearby Westside Regional Medical Center. She was later reportedly pronounced dead.

Police told the site that no foul play is suspected and no drugs were found on the former reality star. An autopsy will reportedly be performed on Friday, October 5, to determine the official cause of death.

Stephen Carbone, the blogger behind the Bachelor fan site Reality Steve, paid tribute to Caserta on Twitter on Thursday evening. “Sick to my stomach to see that Cristy Caserta from Brad Womack’s 2nd season has suddenly passed away,” he tweeted. “Cristy was always there to give me legal advice in the past. I’m at a loss after seeing people post on her FB. Just spoke a couple weeks ago. RIP my friend.”

The Davie, Florida, native was eliminated during the first week of the ABC reality dating series’ 15th season in 2011. Bachelor Womack, 45, who previously led season 11 in 2007, ended up proposing to Emily Maynard, but they broke up a few months after the finale.

Us Weekly has reached out to the Sunrise Police Department for comment.
