Pillman had debuted as a manager in January 2008, working a Georgia independent group and had appeared for Showtime All-Star Wrestling in TN as a valet for Sean Casey as well as a number of other independent promotions since that time.
She also made an appearance at a June 2008 TNA house show in Cincinnati, where she worked as a ring girl and specific mention was made of her stepfather's heritage to the live crowd.
We don't have any details in regard to her passing but word began spreading this evening among the independent circles in the Mid-West area. Sean Casey, who was trained by Brian Pillman, posted a memorial graphic in her memory on his official Myspace earlier today.
Our deepest condolences to the Pillman family and friends at this time.
1:40 AM Update: We have been informed Pillman passed away following a car accident. We don't have further information at this time. Again, our condolences to the entire Pillman family and friends during this terrible time.
