Jordan Cashmyer, who appeared on the 5th season of “16 and Pregnant” during it’s 2010 run is no longer with us. The Baltimore Sun reports that she was found dead at 26-years old in her apartment earlier this month. According to police, there were no signs of illegal drug use or trauma when they arrived. According to her mother, she suffered through a troubled life and at one point was homeless and living under a bridge. It is unknown whether or not drugs played any part in her death.
No official details hinting to what may have caused Cashmyer’s death have been released other than the claims of drug abuse.
Cashmyer’s season of 16 and Pregnant focused on her struggles as a teenager to raise her child Kameron, who was born in 2009. She also had two other children at the time, Maci (who appeared with Amber Portwood during Teen Mom OG) and Miley (who appears currently with Jenelle Evans during Teen Mom 2).
We are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Jordan Cashmyer.
Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.
