Earlier in the day, family friend Bill Horn spoke to the press on behalf of the family, saying they were holding out for a “miracle.” Hall confirmed her death to the Chicago Sun Times later that afternoon.
Tommie and Ashley were married in January, 2012 after a tumultuous 2011 for Tommie.

In an additionally tragic turn to the tragic story, the couple has two young children, the second of which born only four months ago.
