Former The Real World: New Orleans star Ryan Knight has passed away at 29.
Knight, who appeared as a castmate on the show in 2010, had been complaining of stomach pains in the two days prior to his death, however, no immediate cause of death has been found from his autopsy completed Friday morning, TMZ reported.
Police officials in Kenosha, WI, told the website they had unsuccessfully tried to revive Knight when they arrived at his pal's home Thursday morning and found his body with no obvious signs of injury.
According to a few friends close to Knight, the former reality TV star partied hard Wednesday night, took "some pills" -- which remain unidentified -- and ended up at the pal's house, where police found no drugs yesterday, TMZ reported.
The pal reportedly said Knight had choked on his own vomit.
Knight had just begun dating someone new and was allegedly very happy during his night out.
Knight's death ironically comes on the heels of Diem Brown's passing. The Real World/Road Rules Challenge participant just died a couple weeks ago at the age of 32 following a long and very-public battle with cancer.
