"At this point it is not a suspicious death and the manner will be determined by the medical examiner," an Austin Police Department Homicide Unit spokesperson told E! News on Tuesday.

Nance was a contestant on Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette" back in 2012 when he was 26. He made it to Week 4 before being one of two men who failed to receive a rose when there were 12 men remaining.

Maynard took to Twitter on Tuesday to react to the heartbreaking news.

"So sad waking up to the news about Michael Nance," she wrote. "Such a kind heart with so much talent. Sending prayers and love to his family and friends."
