We have an update on the tragic death of Brandi Mallory.
As previously reported, the former Extreme Weight Loss contestant died on November 9 in the town of Stone Mountain, Georgia.
She was only 40 years old.
No cause of death was announced at the time this news broke; nor are we privy to a cause of death at the moment.
However, the Atlanta Police Department now reports that Mallory was last seen on November 8 via surveillance footage as she drove to a local Chipotle around 5:53 p.m.
She entered the established… returned to her vehicle with her food… but never left.
The owner of a nearby deli told authorities that he noticed a lone vehicle in the parking lot the next morning, adding that a woman appeared to be sleeping inside, according to the official documents.
The man reportedly became concerned and called 911 a few hours later when he noticed the car was still there and the woman inside “did not look alert, conscious or breathing.”
This woman, of course, was later identified as Mallory.
Police shave aid there was no sign of foul play and that Mallory’s cause of death is still under investigation.
Mallory was a contestant on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss Season 4 back in 2014.
She maintained a strong social media following in the years since this appearance by sharing makeup tips and also by sharing her love for dancing.
The late star’s family and friends honored her memory with a candlelight vigil on November 12, while a memorial service will be held for her on Sunday, November 19, 2023 in Lithonia, Georgia.
