America’s Next Top Model Mirjana Puhar Murdered

America’s Next Top Model star Mirjana Puhar was found murdered in a residential home in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday. She, along with boyfriend of just a few months, Jonathan Alvarado, and friend Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia were found by a friend after gunshots were heard. The friend said he didn’t see the third victim at first, but saw a lot of money strewn around the ground inside the home.

Mirjana Puhar, 19-years-old, was on cycle 21 of America’s Next Top Model. She was eliminated during episode 10 of the show. She will be remembered as a stunning natural beauty with an incredibly unique look.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic news about Mirjana Puhar," Tyra Banks and fellow executive producer of ANTM, Ken Mok, wrote in a statement to ABC News. "She was a vivacious and promising young woman. Our hearts and prayers go out to her loved ones."

Later in the afternoon, 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel, a friend of Jonathan Alvarado, was arrested and charged with 3 counts of 1st degree murder. Law enforcement sources tell us the preliminary investigation leads police to believe the murders were drug related.
