Drew Carey’s former fiance, Dr Amie Harwick, was reportedly murdered after an ex-boyfriend attacked her in a struggle that led to her falling from a third-story balcony.
TMZ reported that police in Hollywood Hills were called early Saturday morning to a report of a woman screaming. Harwick’s roommate reportedly told responding officers that she was being attacked insider her home, but police instead found Harwick unresponsive under a third-story balcony with serious injuries. She was taken to a hospital but later died of those injuries, the report noted.
Police said they believed that Harwick’s ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, forced his way into her apartment and a struggle then ensued. They said that Harwick was fearful of Pursehouse and had recently taken a restraining order out against him, though the order ended two weeks ago.
Though Harwick was known for her work as a popular sex therapist, she gained widespread fame through her relationship with the actor and comedian. Harwick and Carey were first connected in June 2017 after The Price Is Right host shared a picture with her on Instagram. The two were together for a year and got engaged the following February, but would split in November of 2018. As Fox News reported at the time, there were no signs that the relationship was on the rocks, as Carey shared a number of happy pictures together with the 37-year-old.
The relationship was Drew Carey’s second engagement after he previously popped the question to girlfriend Nicole Jaracz in 2007. He has never been married.
