By Mike Johnson on 2021-09-04 11:11:00 acquired a copy of the Police report related to the passing of Shannon "Daffney" Spruill late last week, which noted Spruill was found with what is believed to have been a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her chest inside her locked apartment.  

According to TMZ, police went to Spruill's apartment in Norcoss, GA, meeting her mother there after Spruill streamed a disturbing video on her social media that indicated she was going to self-hard herself.  Authorities knocked on the door but receiving no answer, left without trying to gain entry.  When they returned several hours later, they found her car and had the building give them access to the apartment, only to find the apartment's deadbolt was locked.  The local fire department broke open the door, at which point Daffney was found.

Spruill was only 46 years old. expresses our deepest condolences to Spruill's family, friends and fans.

*** would like to make those working in the professional wrestling industry aware of Behind the Scenes, a charity organization specifically launched to help those in the entertainment industry who deal with and live the the pressures of “the show must go on” 24/7 mentality that comes with working in the performing arts genre.

Their mental health initiative page notes:

"Many people have become increasingly concerned about the rising number of suicides and the prevalence of alcohol/substance misuse within the entertainment industry. By its very nature our industry can impact your physical and emotional health due to long hours, pressure to push your body, and high workplace stress. In response, Behind the Scenes and other individuals and organizations have come together to create this initiative."

There are mental health services available for those in both the United States and Canada, including peer to peer chats, suicide prevention resources, mental health first aid training, assistance with finding a therapist and an Anonymous Online Self-Assessment Tool.  All of these services are free.

You can find the Behind the Scene's website at this link.

A special thanks to Ethan Gilson for all his help.
