In her TikTok video, Paige said that she was currently going through the anger stage of her grief, and that nothing around her actually felt real.

In the comments under both the post and the video, she received plenty of support from folks who understood that grief can manifest in strange ways, and offered her condolences for her loss.
Conor apparently died in a train accident.
Conor and Paige both live in La Verne, Calif., and reports suggest that Conor died after an accident involving Metrolink commuter train at Ruether Avenue and Golden Triangle Road intersection. Conor was reportedly hit by the train and immediately succumbed to his injuries as a result. Conor was just 24 years old. It's unclear whether Conor stepped in front of the train intentionally or if he was hit by accident.
Paige and everyone else who loved Conor are left grieving his loss. Paige hasn't made any announcement about when she might resume regular posting. She will likely need time to process the loss and grieve in her own way.
