Stefanie Sherk, a Canadian model and actress known for work on “CSI: Cyber” and in the rom-com “Valentine’s Day,” along with being the wife of actor Demián Bichir, has died. She was 43.

Bichir said on Instagram Wednesday night that Sherk passed away peacefully on April 20.

The LA County Coroner’s report, obtained by TheWrap, said that Sherk died by suicide. The specific causes of death were anoxic encephalopathy (brain deprived of oxygen), asphyxia, and drowning.

“It has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives and we don’t know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain,” Bichir said in a post. “Stefanie’s beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed. We will hold Stefanie in our hearts forever.”

Sherk also appeared alongside Bichir in “The Bridge,” an American remake of a Danish-Swedish drama series that aired on FX for two seasons in 2013 and 2014.

Sherk will be seen in the horror remake “Grudge” due out in January 2020, which also stars Bichir.

Bichir is an Oscar-nominated actor for his work in the 2011 film “A Better Life” and has also starred in “The Hateful Eight” and “The Nun.”

“We thank everybody beforehand for their prayers and we respectfully ask for your understanding so we may grieve in peace and privacy in these incredibly difficult times,” Bichir continued on Instagram. “It is our sincerest hope that our beautiful Stefanie, my angel and love of my life, will rest in eternal peace.”
