Anthony Riley, a contestant from the most recent season of ‘The Voice’ was found dead at his home on Friday June 5. 

Riley is believed to have committed suicide.

His passing on was confirmed on Sunday June 7.

The Philadelphia resident made it to the battle rounds on ‘The Voice’ this spring before dropping out to enter rehab.

He spoke on his reason for dropping out when he said; “At the time, being on the show wasn’t working for me and I felt like I needed to go, instead of taking on more responsibility than I could handle,” he said in March.

Riley specialized in 1960s R&B, and he performed I Got You and Get Ready during his time on the show.
