Wayne Static’s Widow Tera Wray Static Found Dead

Wyne Static’s (Static-X) widow, Tera Wray Static, has been found dead. According to her attorney, the 33-year-old’s death was a result of suicide. Wray was a former porn star, who married Static in 2008. Both struggled with drug abuse over the years, and that took a toll on Static’s body, which played a role in his death back in November 2014. His official cause of death was accidental overdose. R.I.P. to both of them.


UPDATE: Wray’s roommate, Jay’e Jones has since issued the following statement:

“I came home last night after work, and found one of my dearest friends had ended her life in my guest room where she was staying. I will give no further details regarding the matter. I am working closely with her family and friends to honor her memory, in the best way possible. Thank you for understanding.”

She later added:

“As we are still unable to contact the person who runs Wayne Static‘s Facebook page, to post the official statement regarding Tera Static‘s death, I will share it here below. This was very difficult for us to write, and we appreciate all the love and kind messages that have been received by her friends and family.

“Love conquered all on the evening of Wednesday, January 13, 2016. After 14 months of separation by death, Tera Wray Static took fate into her own hands, and ended her life to be with the man she loved.

So it is with heavy hearts we confirm her suicide. Her body was discovered by a friend whom she had been living with temporarily. The exact cause of death has yet to be released by the coroner’s office, but a drug overdose has been ruled out.

Tera suffered from depression since the death of her husband, Wayne Static of Static-X, who passed on November 1, 2014. Close friends of the couple had this to say:

“We are deeply saddened over the news, but feel a peace that she is together with her husband. The undeniable bond they had from the moment they met throughout their remaining years was an intense, true love that only few experience.”
Tera was deeply loved by her friends and family, and we politely ask that their privacy is respected during this difficult time.”
