As previously reported, her sister Christy and brother Billy told the outlet their sister had taken her own life at her home in Austin. She reportedly left a suicide note.

Ashley’s family said she was found unresponsive at her home after a friend called the Austin Police Department for a wellness check at her residence.

The family said she had been struggling with substance abuse but was “trying to get her life back on track.”

The former Playmate made headlines in 2016 for being charged with driving under the influence after allegedly driving her golf cart into several parked cars.

She was also a victim of domestic violence at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, Lane Garrison, who was convicted of domestic battery in 2012.
