Actress Lisa Masters – who you may recognize from Law & Order: SVU, Ugly Betty, and The Stepford Wives — was found dead on Tuesday in her Lima, Peru hotel room after an apparent suicide.
Hotel employees discovered the 52-year-old in the closet around 11:50 p.m., after she reportedly hung herself with a skirt — according to the newspaper Peru 21. She was traveling on a modeling assignment.
Officials say the actress may have been battling depression, as anti-depressants were found among her possessions.
Friends of Masters started a GoFundMe to help the actress's husband William Brooks during this difficult time.
