Former wrestling star Daffney Unger died from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.

According to a police report obtained by TMZ, the athlete who was found dead on Thursday, September 2, had a gun within reach of her lifeless body.

The 46-year-old, who became the second woman to become WCW Cruiserweight Champion, spoke of her personal struggles the night before her death.

According to TMZ, Daffney started an Instagram Live stream on Wednesday night and shared troubling thoughts.

She said: "Do you guys not understand that I am all alone? Do you not understand that?"

"Remember, my brain goes to Boston".

Police met Daffney's mum, Jean at the ex-wrestler's home in Norcross, Georgia, for a welfare check on Thursday.

A police report states officers heard no answer when knocking at the door, so they left without trying to gain entry.

Returning to the property a few hours later, police this time spotted Daffney's car had been parked close by.

With officers still unable to get into the apartment, they approached a maintenance man who gave them a key but was not enough to unlock the deadbolt.

As a result, the fire department was called to help break down the door to allow officers to gain entry.

Once finally inside the apartment, they found Daffney's dead body on her bed having sustained a gunshot wound to her chest.

Close to her was a gun.
