Dahlia Sky suicide death: Adult entertainer battling terminal breast cancer shoots self dead according to LA investigators. No foul play suspected.
Sky’s body was found in the vehicle at approximately 8 p.m. on June 30 in the San Fernando Valley’s Devonshire area, LAPD detective Dave Peteque told AVN. Police are awaiting autopsy results from the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.
While no formal cause of death has been recorded, Peteque said ‘potential suicide’ is ‘what the investigation is leaning towards, and there’s no evidence at this time that there’s any foul play.’
10-year veteran of the adult entertainment industry would have observed her 32nd birthday on Aug. 10, according to AVN.
‘It was not an easy ride for her…’
Since her passing, friends and fans have come forward to memorialize Sky’s prolific career and nuanced personality.
‘During her last year I spoke to her several times about life. It was not an easy ride for her,’ said Hans — the mononymous owner of JHP Films, which co-produced some of Sky’s previous work — in a statement to AVN. ‘This will take a long time to get over, if it’s even possible. Dahlia Sky, you beautiful soul, you funny, complicated and warm-hearted friend! I am going to miss you so much.’
Sky began adult entertainment work in 2010 under the name Bailey Blue — she changed it in 2014 following a cease and desist from a clothing company of the same name, according to AVN — and proceeded to accrue more than 600 credits, as well as various industry awards. She was open about her battle with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and depression on social media.
‘She was super funny and she had a big heart, but unfortunately her battle with breast cancer took a toll on her mental health and she struggled with depression, as most people would,’ producer Axel Braun told AVN of Sky. ‘My heart goes out to her family and loved ones, we lost a beautiful soul.’
