Former WCW and Impact Wrestling star Daffney Unger (Shannon Claire Spruill) posted a series of Instagram Live videos on Wednesday night where she expressed thoughts that were interpreted as suicidal by viewers. This led to widespread concern about Daffney’s well-being with people trying to contact police and her family members.
On Thursday morning, TMZ.com noted that they “reached out to authorities to see if they’ve made contact with Daffney” but hadn’t received any information back yet.
Shimmer Wrestling’s Twitter account announced on Thursday afternoon that Unger passed away…
"We are very sad to have to announce the passing of Shannon Spruill aka Daffney Unger @screamqueendaff. We are posting this at the request of her family. Please respect their privacy at this trying time.
I will miss you my logical sister from another mister."
