How Did Chyna Die?
Chyna Death – Laurer’s body was found at her home in Redondo Beach, California, on April 20, 2016. She turned 46. Her manager, Anthony Anzaldo, was worried when she didn’t post on her usual social media sites for a few days. He later found her dead body in her apartment. The first police reports said it looked like she had died of either a drug overdose or something natural. Anzaldo said that any overdose was probably an accident because she was given drugs but often used them wrong.
Chyna Death – Scientists got her brain so they could study how chronic traumatic encephalopathy affects the brain (CTE). But Laurer’s brain had naturally broken down to the point where it was impossible to say if he had CTE. On June 22, 2016, there was a service for the dead in Los Angeles. Wrestlers Melina Perez, Rob Van Dam, Sean Waltman, and Johnny Mantell were there, as well as actors C. Thomas Howell and Barry Williams, Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof, and singers Coolio and Baby Bash performed at the memorial. Chyna’s body was burned, and her ashes were spread out in the Pacific Ocean.
In December 2016, the results of her autopsy were made public. They showed that she died on April 17 from an overdose of alcohol, anxiety drugs diazepam and nordazepam, painkillers oxycodone and oxymorphone, and a sleeping pill called temazepam.
