"The Price is Right" is taking an unexpected hiatus.

The show notified its audience members on Monday morning that all tapings for the week have been canceled. The news comes following the death of host Drew Carey’s former fiancée, Amie Harwick, TMZ reports.

"Amie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime,” Carey, 61, said in a statement. “She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist. I am overcome with grief. I would like to thank you in advance for giving myself and everyone who loved Amie privacy while we try to work through this tragic situation."

According to a press release, the L.A. Police Department found the family therapist unconscious and “gravely injured” beneath a third-story balcony outside of her Hollywood Hills home Saturday.  She died at a local hospital due to “significant injuries consistent with a fall,” US Weekly reports.

According to police, a male roommate went to a neighbor’s  to call for help, saying the victim had been assaulted inside her home

“The investigation revealed possible evidence of a struggle in the upstairs as well as forced entry to the residence,” the LAPD stated in the press release. “A canvass of the area located further evidence of an intruder (suspect) entering the property and leaving after the murder. Detectives learned that [the] victim had recently expressed fear about a former boyfriend and had previously filed a restraining order against this person. The restraining order had expired and the victim had seen this former boyfriend two weeks ago.”

Harwick’s ex Gareth Pursehouse, 41, was reportedly arrested later Saturday in connection with the 38-year-old’s murder. His bail is set at $2 million.

Furthermore, the therapist shared an Instagram post about unhealthy relationships on Valentine’s Day, just one day before her passing.

She wrote: "Many people are celebrating love today. Whether you are in a relationship or not, exposure to this could feel overwhelming if you are in an unhealthy relationship, dissatisfied with your relationship status, unhappy in your relationship, or feeling pressure to be in a relationship. I think that Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to be mindful and redirect thoughts about love to platonic love. There is so much cultural emphasis on romantic love, but let’s be thankful for the authentic love that we give and receive to friends. "

Harwick and Carey announced their engagement in January 2018 before they split in November of that year.
