Joanie Laurer, who grew up in a troubled family in western New York, served in the Peace Corps and found fame as the professional wrestler Chyna and later as an entertainer and reality-television star, was found dead on Wednesday afternoon at her apartment in Redondo Beach, Calif. She was 45.
The police were called by a friend who, unable to reach Chyna by telephone for several days, went to the home and found her not breathing, according to Sgt. Shawn Freeman, a spokesman for the city’s Police Department.
