The 38-year-old, who was the mother of twins, spent three days in critical condition after having surgery last Thursday before succumbing to a pulmonary embolism on Sunday.

Beyond-just-pissed that he didn’t win the pageant, contestant Leroy Tinch, 28, of Evanston, Illinois, allegedly sought revenge with his buddy Anthony Johnson, 23, on the one judge of the panel that voted against him for the win. And it gets worse.
