Bachelor Nation is in mourning, once again, after the death of "kind soul" Michael Nance, 31, one of Emily Maynard's suitors on "The Bachelorette" Season 8.

Nance was 26 when he competed on the 2012 season; the Austin, Texas resident was featured as a musician, with ABC listing his occupation as Rehab Counselor.

A spokesperson with the Austin Police Department told Entertainment Tonight that officers responded to a call about an unresponsive male at 2:10 a.m. on Monday; Nance was pronounced dead just before 3 a.m.

"At this point it is not a suspicious death and the manner will be determined by the Medical Examiner," the department told ET. "The cause and manner of death will be determined by the Travis County Medical Examiner's Office."

Emily Maynard, and several of her Season 8 bachelors, reached out with condolences:

Sadly, Bachelor Nation is no stranger to early deaths. Gia Allemand of "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor Pad" took her own life in 2013, at age 29, in just one of way too many examples.
