WBFF Photojournalist Passes Away Suddenly After Lifelong Battle with Diabetes

By Andrew Gauthier 

Earlier this week, WBFF announced that photojournalist Chris Monroe had passed away suddenly at the age of 42, and now details are emerging that point to a possible cause of death.

Journal-isms is reporting that Monroe was a lifelong diabetic “who at one point would undergo kidney dialysis as he slept at night so he could work as a photojournalist during the day.”

Monroe had spent the last seven years with the Baltimore Fox-affiliate.


“We will miss him terribly,” WBFF said in a statement. “He endured many ‘tests’ in life with divine strength and always, ALWAYS with a smile. Never complaining.”

Monroe’s parents told Journal-isms that a medical examiner is working to determine the cause of death.
