Reports state that when Massaro was found, she was already unconscious, and was rushed to a local hospital.
Former WWE wrestler Ashley Massaro, who died at the age of 39, was reportedly found hanging in her home in Suffolk County, New York on May 16, 2019, according to an update by TMZ.
We had earlier reported that the star died on Thursday, May 16, morning after being taken to the hospital in the Suffolk County, New York area. When Massaro was found, she was already unconscious and was rushed to a local hospital. According to the police dispatch, the "rescue call" came in at 5.23 am to Massaro's home in Smithtown. She was reportedly administered CPR on the way to the hospital and was later pronounced dead at the facility.
Law enforcement reportedly classified her death as non-criminal in nature.
Shortly after reports of her death, wrestler CM Punk, on May 17, reportedly phoned the WMGM and told them that he had heard rumors that Massaro had allegedly killed herself. The cause of Massaro's death had not been made public at the time Punk made the announcement.
He reportedly told the audience that if anybody was struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, they should immediately seek help.
"It is a very sad way to die. My thoughts go out to everybody in her family, especially to her daughter. May is Mental Health Month. If you feel depressed and things are not going right, there is no reason why one should feel as if they are alone. Reach out to a person you know. Text one of your friends. Make a call. There are hotlines if you have nobody. There is always a way to get help," Punk said referring to Massaro's death.
Massaro began her career in 2005 and was known for her win at WWE's Raw Diva Search the same year and her high-profile match against Melina at Wrestlemania 23 in 2007. The wrestling superstar also participated in 'Survivor: China', however, she was soon voted out in the second episode in 2007. Although Massaro left wrestling in 2008, she eventually made a comeback with another pro company in 2017.
