This is so sad!
Michael Nance, whom you may remember from Emily Maynard‘s season of The Bachelorette, was found dead early Monday morning in Texas. He was just 31.
According to the report, Austin PD arrived to an apartment complex around 2:10 a.m. after receiving a call about an unresponsive male. Nance was pronounced dead about an hour later.
A spokesperson for the homicide unit said in a statement:
“At this point it is not a suspicious death and the manner will be determined by the medical examiner.”
