Keri Lee of ‘That Metal Show’ Dies
A VH1 spokesperson has confirmed that model Keri Lee, probably best-known for her role as Miss Box of Junk on VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show,’ has passed away. Lee, who was 25, was found in her New York apartment on Dec. 7. ‘That Metal Show’ recently finished taping its second season.
During the Stump the Trunk segment of the show, host Ed Trunk would take on an audience member in metal trivia, and if the member was able to ask a question he couldn’t answer, they would win something from his “box of junk,” which was presented by Lee. Trunk wrote about Lee’s passing on Twitter, saying, “Woke up in LA today to hear the horrible news that Keri Lee, miss box of junk on TMS, has passed away. More news when I get it.” He told Noisecreep that there still isn’t any news, but again confirmed her untimely passing.
