Very sad news! 35-year-old Julien Hug, a former Bachlorette contestant from Jillian Harris‘ season in 2009, was found dead in Riverside County, CA Nov. 3.

According to the Riverside County sheriff’s deputies report, Julien’s body was found in a remote area near Highway 74 close to Pinyon Pines at around 11:00 a.m.

Julien was the the son of Bertrand and Denise Hug, who own the restaurants Mille Fleurs and Bertrand at Mister-A’s. He was reported missing just days before the terrible incident.

“Please say a prayer for the loss of a friend this morning,” Jillian tweeted on Nov. 4. “Life is fragile, don’t forget to love the ones you love.” We will say a prayer, and our thoughts go out to his loved ones.
