Prince was not the only celebrity to be found dead this week under mysterious circumstances.
The body of former World Wrestling Entertainment Intercontinental champion Chyna, real name Joanie Laurer, was discovered Wednesday night in her Redondo Beach, California home and officials are investigating a possible drug overdose as the cause, TMZ reported.
No illegal drugs were found on her property, but authorities did discover prescription bottles the celebrity news site reported.
Police said there were no signs of foul play. In addition, there was no evidence that Laurer killed herself and no suicide note was found.
Sadly, authorities suspect she may have been dead for days before she was discovered.

Crushed to hear that Chyna has passed away. In WWE she was over at the highest level. Very funny, sweet, and bad ass. She was awesome. @WWE
