Kristin Cavallari’s brother found dead
LOS ANGELES – Realty TV star Kristin Cavallari said her brother Michael of San Clemente was found dead nearly two weeks after he went missing, People Magazine reported Thursday.
“We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time. We have just been informed by the authorities my brother’s body has been found,” Kristin told People.
Utah authorities were looking Michael Cavallari after his car was found abandoned on November 27. When authorities got to the scene along Interstate 70, there was no sign of Michael Cavallari.
“Credit card transaction receipts also led investigators to a convenience store in Monticello, Utah,” the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said. “Upon reviewing the security footage from the convenience store, the driver of the vehicle was positively identified as Michael Cavallari.”
Kristin Cavallari, 28, is married to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. She rose to fame as a cast member of reality shows “Laguna Beach” and its spinoff series, “The Hills,” which detailed her life and that of her friends in Southern California.
Kristin recently uploaded an Instagram photo of herself and her brother as kids writing, “We remain hopeful … I have such gratitude for all those that have shared their support.”
