We have some sad news to report this morning as former WWE superstar, Shad Gaspard, has passed away at the age of 39. This is after his body went missing a few days ago while he was swimming with his son.

According to multiple reports, The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed his death. This has also been confirmed by the Los Angeles County Fire Department via Twitter:

He was swimming with his 10-year-old son, Aryeh, when they and several other swimmers were caught in a strong rip current near Venice Beach. “When last seen by the lifeguard, a wave had crashed over Mr. Shad Gaspard and he was swept out to sea,” Los Angeles police said in a statement Monday.

Gaspard was most known for his time as a member of “Cryme Time”, along with his partner JTG. Check out a clip of them in action:

We at Wrestling Rumors extended our deepest sympathies and condolences to the entire Gaspard family during this difficult time.
