One of the best-known and most-popular female professional wrestlers in history, Chyna, has died.
Police in Southern California said they were responding to a 911 call from a friend of Chyna when they found her dead in her apartment.
A friend went to check on her on Wednesday after she didn’t answer her phone for a few days. The friend told the 911 operator that Chyna, whose real name is Joan Marie Laurer, wasn’t breathing.
The 46-year-old was dead when officers arrived. Several media outlets report that she was 45.
A coroner’s investigator was still at the apartment late Wednesday night. The cause of death is said to be a possible overdose but there is no official cause of death yet.
