LOVE Island star Josh Goldstein’s older sister Lindsey was “planning her wedding” before her sudden death at age 27, her devastated family claimed.
Josh, 24, and Shannon, 25, announced on last night’s episode of Love Island that they are leaving the villa after learning his sister tragically passed away.
A Massachusetts coroner’s office confirmed exclusively to The Sun that Lindsey’s cause of death is currently unknown, as her autopsy and toxicology results are pending.
The coroner’s date of death is August 4.
A Massachusetts police department confirmed to The Sun that they responded to her home in Haverhill on August 4 for an alarm, but no medical was called to the address.
Social media has been flooded with tributes for Lindsey, who worked as a social worker.
Her uncle captioned a photo of his beloved niece: “As some of you may be aware, I tragically & suddenly lost my niece, Lindsey Beth Goldstein, of Haverhill Ma, earlier this week. She was about to turn 28.
“Lindsey was a superstar who worked for the State of Ma., keeping children & families safe from abuse & neglect. She helped countless families in her short career. She was in the midst of planning her wedding.
"Please keep my brother, Marc Goldstein (RHS Class of 82), His wife Lynn, Josh, and her Fiance Paul in your thoughts and prayers this week as they are not coping with this very well. She will be sorely missed.”
The Sun can confirm from an online wedding registry that Lindsey and her fiance, Paul Gorton, had a wedding date of October 1, 2022.
A friend posted on Facebook: "Lindsey Beth, the world lost an amazing person. Linds knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face and her contagious positivity and encouragement could move mountains.
“I am incredibly saddened to hear the news and I am thinking back to all of our good times in high school and in Keene. So many memories and adventures together. You were absolutely amazing and one of a kind. My heart goes out to the Goldstein family. Linds you will be extremely missed.”
Another friend wrote on social media: “My heart and prayers are with the Goldstein Family today. Lindsey was one of the kindest young girls you could have been around and was always a pleasure to bump into on a night out in Haverhill! My love is with you all today may you rest in sweetest peace Linds.”
On last night’s Love Island, contestants woke up and noticed Josh and Shannon were missing from their bed.
The couple then walked in tear-stricken, as Josh said: “I just wanted to tell you guys that me and Shannon are going home today. Unfortunately, my sister passed away last night.
“She was an unbelievable person. She was the reason I am here. The reason I found Shannon and met all of you guys. It’s unexpected but she lived an unbelievable life. I just need to be home with my family right now to support them and I just want to let you guys know I am so grateful to have met all of you.
“I consider you all my best friends. We’re going to see each other again. This isn’t it. I just need to be with my family right now and I really appreciate all you guys for the support and friendships and fun times and laughs. It’s been an unbelievable experience I’ll never forget.”
Josh and Shannon were the power couple of the villa, as they were the only ones who have been together since the premiere.
Love Island's official Twitter account posted of the loss: "We send our love and condolences to Josh and his family from all of us at Love Island."
