A number of other porn stars have died young in recent months including Olivia Nova who died on 10 January 2018 aged 20, August Ames and Shyla Styles who were discovered dead in recent weeks and on 15 December 2017 Yuri Luv was also discovered dead by her landlord.

Shyla was 35 when she was discovered dead at her home on 9 November 2017 (with no cause of death released as yet) while August took her own life later that month following a backlash over the fact she refused to participate in a sex scene involving a man who also had sex with men.
