As reported yesterday, SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan‘s youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away yesterday (May 18). She was 22 years old.
Gabrielle died just two days after proudly showing off an Alcoholics Anonymous coin she’d been given to mark five months sobriety.
“5 months” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a smiling selfie.
Crahan‘s son Simon addressed the passing of his sister via social media:
“Today is the hardest day ever,” he wrote. “I’m confused, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m just sad, just really sad. Gabri, I miss you so much. I miss you like no other. We were best friends. We had a good bond and now you’re not here anymore. I love you, Gabri, and I know you’ll know that forever.”
Shawn‘s daughter Alexandria wrote on Instagram: “Yesterday my little sister Gabriellepassed away. I am in shock and have no idea how to process the wave of emotions I am experiencing. The comforts I have in these moments are my family, friends, and cats. Please put good energy out for my parents and my brothers. This loss leaves the biggest hole and our lives will never be the same. 22 is too young to die.”
