Hunter Bryce Found Dead

LOS ANGELES—Performer Hunter Bryce was discovered dead at her home last night, AVN has confirmed. She was 30 years old.

The cause of her death is unknown at this point, but agent Kevin Kline of Type 9 Models, which represented her up until a few months ago, told AVN, "I got a call about 3 a.m. this morning from a girl, and she went over to her place and found her."

News broke of Bryce's passing by way of a tweet Wednesday morning from male performer Tucker Slain, which read that Bryce "was not doing well personally," and that "her roommate told me she was found dead this morning."

Bryce was represented most recently by OC Modeling, whose Heather McCarthy commented, "It just came suddenly. We were trying to get a hold of her for a while, and she kind of just went MIA for a little."

Hunter was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, her hometown, where she completed a double major in non-fiction writing and literature. Her stage name was in part a nod to her favorite author, gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
