Earlier this week, actress Lisa Lynn Masters was found dead in her Peru hotel room after an apparent suicide. According to Peru21, Masters was found inside the closet of her hotel room after she reportedly hanged herself with a skirt. Officials found anti-depressants in her room and suspect that she was struggling with depression.

The 52-year-old’s family and friends have set up a GoFundMe page to raise $30,000 for her funeral and travel expenses. The page wrote, "Our dear friend Lisa Masters passed away tragically and unexpectedly in Lima, Peru on November 15, 2016. Lisa’s genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed.”

The page also revealed how Masters’ husband William is dealing with her death. "Lisa's beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss. In the midst of his mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States. William is a healing arts practitioner and a long-time Brooklyn resident. Lisa and William lived modestly and both contributed to the expenses of their household. Without Lisa's income, William faces an immediate challenge to covering the rent on his apartment among other things.”

Lisa had roles on "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Ugly Betty," and "Gossip Girl."
