The wrestler, better known to fans as Daffney, broke a lot of heart when the 46-year-old was found deceased earlier this week.
More information has begun to emerge as TMZ Sports reported the former professional wrestling star died from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
“Police went to Unger’s home in Norcross, GA Thursday for a welfare check. According to the police report, they were met by Daffney’s mom, Jean. They knocked at the door but there was no answer, so they left without trying to gain entry. They came back a second time a few hours later, and this time they saw Daffney’s car parked near the apartment.
A maintenance man gave cops a key but it didn’t unlock the deadbolt. So, the fire department was called and they broke open the door and found Daffney’s body on her bed … a gunshot wound to her chest and a gun within reach.”
The night before police found Unger’s body near a gun in her Georgia home, she released a distressing Instagram Live video in which she said she felt “alone” and stated her desire for her brain to be studied for chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
CTE, which can only be diagnosed after death, is a degenerative neurological disease that stems from repeated injuries to the brain.
