“It is with a heavy heart I write this. The entire PornStar Platinum family is in mourning at the news of the loss of one of its family members. Yuri was found today at the age of 31,” he said. “She was always kind to me and we will miss her.”
While exactly details surrounding Beltran’s death is unknown, her friend Nicky Milo reportedly said it was due to a drug overdose.
“She was discovered by the owner of the house where she was living in Bellflower, CA,” he said. “There were pills found near the bed.”
