Former 'MasterChef' finalist Josh Marks found dead from gunshot wound

UPI News Service, 10/12/2013 

Former "MasterChef" finalist Josh Marks was found dead, possibly of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, in a Chicago alleyway, multiple media reports indicate.

TMZ and the Chicago Tribune both reported the victim was Marks, though the Chicago Police Department would not confirm the identity Friday.

Marks, 26, was a finalist on Season 3 of the Fox reality television show.

"MasterChef" judge Graham Elliot took to Twitter Friday to express his sympathy, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"My heart goes out to the family of #MasterChef finalist Josh Marks, who passed away today. Please send thoughts/prayers their way!" he wrote.

The report of Marks' death came just months after he had a confrontation with Chicago police in which he allegedly claimed he was possessed by "MasterChef" judge Gordon Ramsay and had been transformed into God.

He was arrested at the time and was hospitalized for treatment.

Marks has a history of mental illness.
