Hollywood suffered a big loss as Michael Nance passes away

Bachelor Nation is in mourning today.
Michael Nance, a contestant on Emily Maynard's season of the popular ABC reality franchise, has shockingly passed away.
He was just 31 years old.
Nance competed for Maynard's affection on Season 8 of The Bachelorette; Michael made it to the fourth week of the summer.
A spokesperson for the Austin Police Department Homicide Unit in Texas confirmed the reality star's passing earlier to E! News.
"At this point it is not a suspicious death and the manner will be determined by the medical examiner," the spokesperson said.
Officers in the Texas capital city were dispatched at 2:10 a.m. on Memorial Day, May 29 in reference an unresponsive male.
Upon their arrival, officers located the aforementioned person, later identified as Nance. He was pronounced deceased at 2:54 a.m.
Additional details are scarce at this time.
Within hours of the sad news breaking, fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette cast members took to social media to mourn one of their own.
The franchise and those who star on it really have become like a family in recent years, and they acted accordingly in this tragic case.
Chris Bukwoski, a memorable face whose first appearance was during that same season, posted the following tribute on Twitter:
"Extremely difficult learning the news of Michael Nance's passing. He was a gentle man with a huge heart. He'll be missed but not forgotten."
Arie Luyendyk Jr., the runner-up during that memorable season, penned a touching message to his followers about the loss of Nance.
"I will always remember my friend Michael Nance for his kind and fragile soul. Addiction is a terrible disease, may he finally find peace."
