CNN legal analyst Midwin Charles had passed away Tuesday according to her family. She was 47.
Shortly after the news emerged, Charles’s social media accounts were flooded with condolences and prayers for the successful law firm founder who used to share her opinions with fans.
On March 12, Charles seemed healthy, drinking champagne and dancing before starting her “happy hour” conversation on Biden’s first 50 days as President and Meghan Markle.
A week later, she posted her last message on Instagram, telling followers she was not doing well, but without elaborating.
“Hey guys! Sadly, happy hour tonight is canceled. I’m not feeling well. See you next Friday,” she wrote adding a champagne emoji.
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart and the deepest sadness that we announced the untimely passing of our beloved Midwin Charles,” the family announced.
“She was known to many as a legal commentator on television but to us, she was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and cousin.”
“Our lives are forever changed and will miss her for a lifetime. The family thanks you in advance for your love and prayers. Please allow the family time to grieve. The Family of Midwin Charles.”
The Syracuse University and American University graduate founded her Midwin Charles & Associates LLC. law firm and worked at Harvard Law School and the US Court of Appeals.
