The Love After Lockup alum, Tracie Wagaman, was found dead after an accidental methamphetamine overdose, according to her Coroner. The most tragic part about the incident is that she passed away just a week after she gave birth to her daughter. In addition, the Coroner noted atherosclerotic heart disease as another significant condition.
No one anticipated the devastating incident as Tracie even went on a Livestream after her C-section birth at the hospital. She even announced that she was happy after the surgery and that both she and the baby were healthy. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be the case, as she died due to drug intoxication after.
Tracie Wagman’s family started a GoFundMe campaign following her death. Its goal is to raise enough money for her funeral service.
Her brother, Mark Wagaman wrote a short message on the description saying, “Our family is deeply saddened with our loss. We know she had many friends and followers who were pulling for her.” Fortunately, they were able to get enough funds for Tracie’s funeral service and keep the remaining for her children.
Mark also gave Tracie’s supporters an update, telling them that Tracie’s service was attended by “a few family members and a few friends who have battled for her.” The Wagaman family was highly thankful for all the support the Love After Lockup fans gave Tracie and the whole family during the tragedy.
After that, Mark talked to The Sun and detailed Tracie’s previous imprisonment and their initial attempts to help her right after being released. He also discussed his sister’s struggles in recovering from drug addiction and her quest to stay clean. “She’s had a habit for quite a while, half her life. It’s been 20 years on and off.”
While it’s sad, Love After Lockup alum Tracie Wagaman’s death is a wake-up call to how much addiction can affect one’s life. The incident highlights how destructive drug addiction is and how important it is to seek help as soon as possible.
