We have been told he was found around 1EST at the home of current WWE superstar Steven Richards. The two were
very good friends and had traveled with each when Crash was involved with WWE.
We have one unconfirmed report that Crash may have choked on his own vomit. He was just 34 years old.
The following statement comes directly from WWE.com:
"World Wrestling Entertainment is saddened by the loss
of Michael Lockwood, known professionally as Crash Holly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Michael's friends and family."
We are trying to get more details and will pass them along all night and during the day tomorrow. We are truly saddened
by this and are really at a loss for words. Rest in Peace Crash (Michael), you'll be missed.

Crash had been released from WWE. The reason for his release was due to a variety of reasons, one being his way of 'living
on the edge' and heavy partying. Many in the lockerroom at the time felt it was a distraction to his career and it was starting
to hurt him.
