Former America’s Next Top Model contestant Mirjana Puhar was found dead in a Charlotte, North Carolina, apartment on Tuesday. She was 19. 

Puhar was one of three victims, including her boyfriend, Jonathan Alvarado, 23, and Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia, 21. Gonzaga-Garcia was Alvarado’s best friend and roommate, according to TMZ

A source tells TMZ that a friend of Puhar and her boyfriend heard the gunshots and called the police after entering the home and finding the bodies. 

Police have arrested Emmanuel Jesus Rangel, 19, and charged him with three counts of first degree murder, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department said in a statement. The families have been notified of the deaths. Rangel has also been charged in connection with a murder that took place in Matthews, North Carolina, on Sunday, police said. 

Puhar starred in cycle 21 of the Tyra Banks-led reality competition, which featured both male and female contestants. She was eliminated in the 10th episode of the season, which aired its finale on Dec. 5.
