The former wrestler’s death has been tagged “non-criminal”. She was survived by her daughter.
Wrestler and UFC fighter CM Punk in an interview last week said he had heard that Massaro killed herself. He then urged people battling depression to seek help.
“Tremendously sad way to go,” Punk said, adding that “thoughts obviously go out to her family, especially her daughter.”
“It’s May. It’s Mental Health Month … if you’re depressed and things aren’t going your way, there’s no reason to feel alone,” Punk added. “Just reach out to somebody. Text a friend. Call somebody. There’s hotlines. There’s ways you can get help.”
Alexa Massaro, the deceased’s 18-year-old daughter, shared a tribute to her mom on line which read thus;
“I wish i could have gotten more recent pictures,” Alexa wrote on Instagram, reported the New York Post. “I love you, mommy i want to wake up in your arms more than anything i want to give u a big hug please come back this can’t be real.”
