A 24-year-old former adult actress has died in her sleep, after recently announcing her engagement and leaving the porn industry.

Zoe Parker died in her sleep at age 24 on September 12, in the early hours of the morning in Texas, the New York Post reported.

A cause of death has not yet been determined or made public.

“After leaving the adult industry, Zoe Parker moved back home to Texas to be near her family to start a new life,” a GoFundMe organised by fiancé Jay Campbell said, according to the Daily Star.

"She had started doing great and recently announced her engagement and by all accounts seemed truly happy for the first time in her life.

"This fund is to help cover her funeral expenses. Any little bit helps."

The GoFundMe page has since been disabled and is not accepting donations, though it appears over $400 was raised.

Ms Parker started working in the adult film industry at age 18, in 2014 and left in 2019. During her career she starred in more than 100 productions.

It appears since her departure, Ms Parker was making content on OnlyFans.

“She was always incredibly sweet & sincere, and deserved far more than she got in this life,” one person who said they lived with Ms Parker in LA wrote on Twitter.

“I loved that you weren’t afraid of being exactly who you were,” another person said.

“You had such an impact on those around you, such a light in life, I will miss you so much. My heart breaks knowing you won’t be in my life anymore.”
