Ryan Knight, who appeared on MTV's "The Real World: New Orleans" in 2010, has died at the age of 28. According to the Kenosha Police Department, an autopsy on Knight did not reveal a cause of death. "There were no obvious signs of injury to Mr. Knight," a statement from the Kenosha, Wisconsin police department read. TMZ reported Knight was out with friends on Wednesday night before being found dead on Thursday morning.

Following Knight's death, "Real World" and "Challenge" cast members paid tribute to his memory on Twitter:

Makenzie Jauer, Knight's reported girlfriend, also posted a remembrance of the late reality star on her Instagram page.

Knight is the second "Real World"/"Challenge" alum to die in the last month. Diem Brown, who had been diagnosed with cancer for a third time this past summer, died on Nov. 14. Knight posted a series of tweets about Brown following her death, and changed his Twitter profile picture to a photo of the two of them in an embrace. That picture can be seen below.

"We are saddened to hear the news of the passing of Ryan Knight," MTV wrote in a statement to HuffPost Entertainment. "Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends at this difficult time."
