LOS ANGELES — Adult performer Hunter Bryce has passed away, her agent confirmed Wednesday.
"I got the call about 3 a.m.," Type 9 Models owner Kevin told XBIZ.
The cause of Bryce's death is not known, but she was found dead at her home in the Winnetka area of the San Fernando Valley early Wednesday, her agent said. Born Kathryn Sue Johnston, she was 30 years old.
"I know that she went to sleep and did not wake up," Kevin said. "I notified her mother of this about a hour ago. Her mother had been trying to reach her."
L.A. County coroner Ed Winter said he will be conducting an autopsy, but there were "no obvious signs of trauma."
"We will look into everything, but we won’t release any preliminary information at this point," Winter said, adding that it looked like it was "a natural death."
Performer Rachel Roxxx, Bryce's good friend for the past two years, said that she also received a call about Bryce early this morning and immediately drove to Bryce's home, helping the coroner with information for Bryce's family. Bryce lived with roommates who are not in the adult industry.
"She was a wonderful woman, had a heart of gold," Roxxx said. "I will miss her dearly."
