AceShowbiz - Former Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly has been found dead from a suspected suicide.
The model, 33, was found unresponsive at her home in Austin, Texas on Friday, April 17, after local police conducted a wellness check at the request of a concerned friend.
Mattingly is believed to have taken her own life two days prior, on 15 April. A suicide note was found at the scene, her siblings Christy and Billy tell TMZ.
Her death is currently under investigation, but Mattingly, who was Playboy's Miss March 2011, had been struggling with substance abuse issues for some time.
She previously hit headlines for a driving under the influence arrest in 2016, when she allegedly ploughed her golf cart into four parked cars in Laguna Beach, California.
Mattingly was also known for her troubled relationship with former "Prison Break" actor Lane Garrison, who was convicted of domestic battery following a fight with his then-ex in 2012.
