There have been several rumors circulating the web today that Kerri Lee (Kerri Leigh Tucker), also known as Miss Box of Junk on VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, was found dead in her apartment last night.
At this time there is not much information but several sites including Maximum Threshold and Lee’s page at ModelMayhem.com have reported and referenced this unfortunate event.
Photojournalist Rob Klein, who has worked with Lee in the past, left the following comment on her profile:
“O.M.G. REST IN PEACE KERI LEE… I loved working with you and you were just about to LIVE YOUR DREAM… too soon, girl! We will all miss you!”
So far, there are no comments regarding this matter on the websites of Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson, the hosts of That Metal Show.
However Trunk’s Twitter.com page showed the following message several hours ago:
“Woke up in LA today to hear the horrible news that Kerri Lee, miss box of junk on TMS, has passed away. More news when I get it.”
Kerri Lee Tucker won the honor of “Box of Junk Girl” and made her debut on the first episode of season two.
Our thoughts, wishes, and prayers are with Lee’s family in this very difficult time.
