The 31-year-old was transported to a local hospital in stable condition, but died at 2:39 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16, police said.

McAllister appeared on the 14th season of the ABC reality series, which featured Jake Pavelka.

She was sent home in the first week. Following her run on the reality series, she returned to her native Ohio and worked for a financial planning and wealth management company. She went on to battle both depression and bipolar disorder, according to multiple reports after her death.

McAllister is the second contestant from the 14th season of "The Bachelor" to take her own life. In 2013, Gia Allemand died of apparent suicide at age 29.

Allemand died of a "critical loss of brain and organ function" two days after hanging herself with a vacuum cleaner cord from a staircase in her New Orleans home.
