Ashley Massaro died tragically on Thursday. She was only 39-years-old. After the pro wrestling world reacted and her daughter sent out a gut wrenching tribute we now know even more details about Massaro’s passing.
Massaro sadly died from an apparent suicide. A close friend of Massaro’s, Shelly Martinez who performed under the name Ariel said in a statement:
“My best friend from the wrestling business died from suicide two days after responding to 300+ fan letters. She was the happiest I have seen her in years, so stoked that people still cared about her 11 years after her career was over. There are no signs. It comes without warning. If you are going through the worst shit in your life, just know that you are not alone. PLEASE seek help.”
This is indeed a heartbreaking situation.
Ashley Massaro did love her fans and tweeted out a day before her passing that she had mailed out her responses to the fan mail. That tweet was the final one she sent out.
Out thoughts are with all involved in this tragic situation.
