What was The Reason Behind Charlbi Dean Kriek’s Death?

Everybody wanted to know how Charlbi died, but it took four months after the death of Charlbi, and reports revealing the reason behind her death came to light. According to People, NYC Medical Examiner revealed that the model/actress met with an accident at the age of 18 and had suffered injuries on her torso. Doctors had to remove her spleen, and the absence of the spleen weakened her immunity over time.

As per the said sources, a bacteria named Capnocytophaga entered Kriek’s body and caused sepsis. Dean’s body could not fight back, which took her life.
