JTG, the former Cryme Tyme tag-team partner of Shad Gaspard's in WWE, took to social media to share a screenshot of a text message Gaspard sent him back in January after discovering that his longtime friend had gone missing.
The text, sent on January 26th, 2020 from Gaspard to JTG read:
- "If ever I die tomorrow just know I Love you as a brother and friend for ever, even past this life."
Gaspard went missing on Sunday after being submerged by a rip current at Marina Del Rey Beach.
A massive search was organized, with lifeguards, divers, scuba teams and helicopters looking for a reported three-to-four hours. They later tried again before ultimately calling off the search 24-hours later.
On Monday evening, the family of Gaspard released a quick message through WWE Superstar MVP that notified the media that they are not ready to issue any public comments or statements regarding the matter.
In addition to MVP, fellow WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston also tweeted the message on behalf of Gaspard's family.
