Just a few months after a violent run-in with University of Chicago police, Josh Marks has been found dead. Officials believe he committed suicide.
The MasterChef finalist was just 26 years old.
Police say they received a call from a woman screaming for help Friday evening. They found a 26-year old male with a gunshot wound to the head.
Multiple sources involved with the investigation state that the victim in the Chicago alley is Josh Marks. Officers have also recovered a nearby weapon.
It's a sad and tragic end for this bright talent.
Marks was arrested for assault by University of Chicago cops this summer after an incident in which he allegedly punched an officer and tried to grab his gun.
