Eddy appeared on season 6 of MTV’s reality dating competition in 2017.

Viewers may remember the West Virginia native saying on camera that her cousin was a convicted murderer during the season. It was a standout moment at the time.

As you can see above, Eddy was understandably proud of this accomplishment.

“Pic on the right was two years ago… what a difference,” she captioned these two photos with her dad on Twitter. “So very blessed today. #RecoveryRocks.”

As for the details behind her passing and what transpired, they are still coming in at this time.

However, a family member tells TMZ that Alexis arrived home to her mom's house Wednesday night around 11 p.m. and seemed to be just fine.

She was then discovered by another family member the next morning; her loved ones, for what it's worth, believe Eddy had remained sober from the fall up through her tragic death.
