EastCoastTalents, 11th December 2012:
"It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that we must report on the passing of Katie King. Katie took her own life this past weekend. East Coast Talents would like to express our deepest sympathy to her family and friends in this most difficult time.
While Katie's time in adult was brief she left all those she worked with a lifetime of memories. She will always be remembered as one of the most passionate and joyful models we have worked with. Always quick with a smile and quicker to laugh, she loved what she did and it showed.
We ask that everyone keep Katie in their hearts and memories. Keep her family and friends in mind as they work this tragedy. Rest in Peace Katie, you will be missed."
