This week wrestling was shaken by the death of its exponent Daffney Unger, who was found dead at 46 years of age in one of her homes by authorities in Gwinnett, Georgia. This news came hours after the same athlete made a live broadcast through Instagram in which she was emotionally affected.
It was Thursday September 2 when he apparently took his own life, since during the live he did in said social network, the American gave her emotional damage to be understood with phrases to her followers.
“Don’t you understand that I am alone? Don’t you get it? he mentioned while holding a gun and added: “Remember, my brain goes to Boston”, phrases that were interpreted as a call to his possible suicide.
Daffney, whose real name was Shannon Spruill, He was part of wrestling companies such as WWE, WCW, TNA and Shimmer Wrestling, the latter was the one that announced his death.
“We are very sad to announce the passing of Shannon Spruill, also known as Daffney Unger. We publish this at the request of your family. Respect their privacy at this time of trial“he posted on social media.
