Alexis Arquette

The mystery of Alexis Arquette‘s sudden death on 9/11 has been revealed. I might have given it away in the headline. 

Alexis Arquette died from complications related to AIDS, a source close to the family confirms to PEOPLE.  The transgender actress died Sunday morning surrounded by her family at age 47 and “had been suffering for a long time. She was sick for years,” the source tells PEOPLE. “At one point, she wasn’t able to leave the house; she was in bad shape.”  In her final hours, the source says, “The whole family rallied around her. And in the end they were always there to support her. Everyone knew [her death] was imminent. It was a matter of time.”

I don’t know. AIDS? Seems pretty cliche.
