After the shocking suicide of August Ames, another adult actress Yuri Luv has died due to an apparent drug overdose. She was 31 years old.

"It is with a heavy heart I write this. The entire PornStar Platinum family is in mourning at the news of the loss of one of its family members. Yuri was found today at the age of 31. She was always kind to me and we will miss her," Dan Hogue, director of business development for PornStar Platinum said in a statement to Xbiz.

The adult star, whose name is Yurizan Beltran, was reportedly found in her apartment by the house owner. "Beltran died of an apparent drug overdose. She was discovered by the owner of the house where she was living in Bellflower, CA. There were pills found near the bed," Nickey Milo, Beltran's colleague worked closely with her for PornStar Platinum and her own website YuriLuv, revealed.

Beltran has previously done a nude photo shoot for Penthouse and also appeared on the Lowrider magazine cover at age 18. The news has delivered a major blow to the porn industry which is still reeling from the suicide of August Ames, who took her life on 5 December before leaving a heartbreaking message for her family. Before her suicide, Ames was subjected to vicious internet trolling for denying sex with a fellow adult actor who also performs gay sex.

Months prior to her death, Ames also admitted to suffering from depression. A month before her death, Canadian porn star Shyla Sylez passed away on 9 November.

Several artists in the porn industry have come forward to offer their condolences over Beltran's death. Fellow adult actress Lauren Sanchez‏ expressed her shock and grief in a tweet and wrote: "OMG no I love her I was praying it wasn't real heard the sad news that she passed away. R.I.P Yurizan Beltran."

"A sweet soul lost. You came across very genuine and kind to me when I first met you. I am so sad. Sending love to everyone that was close to Yurizan Beltran," porn star Catalina Cruz wrote.
