We’re saddened to report that Gabrielle Crahan, youngest daughter of Slipknot percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, has died. Slipknot confirmed the tragic news in a tweet earlier today (May 19).
Just days after debuting their new masks in the “Unsainted” video and performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Slipknot family lost a beloved member. Clown posted on Twitter:
It is with a broken heart, and from a place of the deepest pain, that I have to inform all of you that my youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away yesterday — Saturday May 18th, 2019. She was 22 years old. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming. My family and I ask that our privacy be respected moving forward. Thank you.
Clown’s son Simon also memorialized his sister via social media:
Today is the hardest day ever, 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 your not here anymore. I love you Gabri and I know you’ll know that forever.
Alexandria Crahan posted the following tribute:
Yesterday my little sister Gabrielle passed 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.
We’d like to offer our deepest condolences the Crahan family and the loved ones of Gabrielle Crahan.
