Josh Marks, a troubled “MasterChef” finalist, committed suicide in Chicago on Friday.
Police confirm that the 26-year-old was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A revolver was discovered near his body.
Marks’ relatives say he had suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
His death comes after a disturbing July incident during which Marks was arrested for assaulting a police officer.
At the time, authorities say Marks claimed to have been possessed by “MasterChef” judge Gordon Ramsay and believed he’d transformed into God.
Marks was the runner-up to Christine Ha on the third season of “MasterChef” in 2012.
