The MasterChef finalist was pronounced dead Friday night in an apparent suicide.

The 26-year-old’s body was found with a gunshot wound to the head at 6:37 p.m. in the city’s South Side.

According to reports, police responded to a call alerting them to a body discovered along a stretch of South Peoria Avenue, where Marks was found with a revolver nearby. The victim’s wound appeared to have been self-inflicted.

Police say two relatives and an acquaintance of Marks’s were on the scene, and reportedly told them that he had suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

“Right now, this is a death investigation,” said Chicago Police Department spokesman John Mirabelli.

“There was a weapon recovered at the scene. We’re awaiting lab tests and autopsy results. We’re also checking for any nearby surveillance video.”

In July, Marks was arrested after he lunged at a police officer and attempted to take his gun. During the scuffle, the reality star claimed he had been possessed by MastererChef judge Gordon Ramsay and had turned him into God. There was no evidence of drug use at the time. Months before the arrest, Marks revealed he suffered from bipolar disorder during a video he released titled “Make a Sound Project.”

Marks appeared on the FOX series in its third season. He was the runner-up to winner Christine Ha.
