Now Logo tells news that Sahara passed one day after Luzon’s message. “Antoine passed away due to heart failure on October 1, 2012, at John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.”

Ashley’s mother thanked fans this month for their outpouring of support. “I thank God for giving me an Angel Antoine Ashley to share with the rest of the world. My family and I would like to thank everyone for their condolences and support.” She added “We know that our Angel is now dancing in heaven. May God bless each and everyone.”

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – When indications that Sahara Davenport (Antoine Ashley) had may died first surfaced online  the night of October 1, 2012, fans were left without words.

Drag Race judge Michelle Visage first gave suggestions that something might be wrong telling fans “God please no” that evening.
