Shannon Wilsey’s Cause of Death

Wilsey committed suicide in 1994 after an automobile accident, according to Wikipedia.

Wilsey was engaged in a car accident with her Corvette on the evening of July 11, in which she allegedly broke her nose and wounded her face.

She went home to Universal City, got a friend to walk her dog, and then called her manager, Nancy Pera, upset about the accident. Pera was the one who discovered Wilsey in the garage of Wilsey’s house.

Wilsey died hours later in the hospital when her father opted to turn off her life support equipment after it became clear that she would not survive her injury.

Pauly Shore, Wilsey’s ex-boyfriend, alleged that he was with her when she died at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.

Wilsey’s burial was attended by friends, relatives, and a small number of adult industry associates two days later. Shore was the only ex-boyfriend who attended the service.

Shore remarked of Wilsey, “She was the loveliest, most beautiful person I ever met… For me, [her death] was an emotional event.” “She became Savannah,” he responded when asked why she killed herself. She became her character, who was addicted to narcotics and need constant reinforcement. She had forgotten who Shannon was… “I knew she wanted to leave.”

Wilsey’s death was the adult industry’s third high-profile suicide.

Bill Margold established Protecting Adult Welfare (P.A.W.) after her death, a non-profit organization that provides counseling to adult performers in need.

Her corpse was cremated, and her ashes were distributed to family and friends.
