Officials responded to a “rescue call” and reports of an unconscious female at her home in Suffolk County, New York, at 5.23am on Thursday, according to The Blast.
Ashley was administered CPR on the way to the hospital, but was later pronounced dead.
Reports suggest cops believe there was no foul play and they are classifying the death as “non-criminal”.
Ashley famously won the WWE’s 2005 Raw Diva Search – which included a $250,000 (£195,000) one-year contract.
