Lex McAllister, Alexa McAllister, The Bachelor


Alexa "Lex" McAllister's autopsy has been completed, and the cause of death has been revealed.

E! News confirms that the former Bachelor contestant died from a drug overdose. According to the coroner's report, which we've obtained, McAllister's death was due to acute intoxication by the combined effects of amlodipine and acetaminophen in the manner of suicide.

The 31-year-old, who competed on The Bachelor's 14th season in 2010, passed away in February. Police had said they responded to a 911 call and arrived at a home to find McAllister in stable condition after taking "a lot" of pills. She was taken to a hospital, where her health deteriorated. Her family took her off life support shortly afterward.

Despite her brief appearance on the show, fellow cast mates remember McAllister fondly. 

The Bachelor whose heart McAllister was competing for, Jake Pavelka, took to Twitter after the news broke, writing, "Im so sad to hear about Alexa. Such a beautiful girl. My heart breaks for her family. Covering them in prayer during this rough time."

"I am honestly in shock that another beautiful soul would take their life," the season's runner-up Tenley Molzahn shared exclusively with E! News. "She was only on our first episode but she seemed like such a vibrant soul. This is just shocking news no matter how well you know someone."

"I would like to express my sincere condolences," the season's winner Vienna Girardi also told E! News exclusively. "My heart goes out to Lex's family during this difficult time. I remember her being such a positive young lady who could light up any room."
