Anthony Riley Dead - 'The Voice' Contestant Dies at 28
Anthony Riley, a contestant on the most recent season of The Voice, has sadly died of an apparent suicide at age 28.
The singer received instant chair turns from all four judges during his audition and he ultimately went with coach Pharrell Williams. After making it through the first battle round, Anthony left the show and cited personal reasons.
Anthony later revealed that he was overcoming substance addiction and decided to leave the show to go to rehab, which NBC reportedly paid for. He was found dead on Friday (June 5) in the basement of his Philadelphia apartment, according to Philly.com.
We send out our thoughts and prayers to Anthony‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
