Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actress Lisa Lynn Masters has been found dead of an apparent suicide. The actress was found hung in a hotel room in Nuevo Mundo, Peru on Tuesday of this week.
The 52-year-old had been in Peru for a modeling job at the time, and it has been confirmed that there was a suicide note and antidepressants found in the room as well.
“Our dear friend Lisa Masters passed away tragically and unexpectedly in Lima, Peru on November 15, 2016. Lisa’s genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed. Lisa’s beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss. In the midst of his mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States.”
Lisa’s husband William works as a healing arts practitioner and a GoFundMe account has been set up to help pay for the funeral costs as well as the cost of shipping her body back to the United States. As of Thursday the page has raised $30,000.
