She was the youngest fighter to ever compete in ONE Championship. Her death shocked the world of combat sports and fans are mourning over her loss. Her family and ONE Championship confirmed the same on social media. But what’s Victoria Lee cause of death?
Victoria Lee Cause of Death
After the news of Victoria Lee’s death broke out, anti-vaccination activists started claiming on social media that the cause of The Prodigy‘s death was due to COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult syndrome (SADS). It has now become a norm for anti-vaccination activists to blame the death of athletes on the COVID-19 vaccine.
But did Victoria Lee die from suicide? “On December 26, 2022, our family experienced something no family should ever have to go through….,” Victoria’s sister Angela Lee wrote in an Instagram post on January 7, 2023, after Victoria’s obituary was published by Valley of the Temples Memorial Park in Kaneohe, Hawaii. “It is incredibly difficult to say this…Our Victoria passed away,” she added.
Angela did not reveal the cause of her sister’s death. But in her post, when she advised everyone to check on their loved ones and to tell them how much they mean, many have claimed that Victoria took her own life. Victoria Lee’s official cause of death is currently unknown.
