A porn star who was battling terminal cancer has been found dead in a suspected suicide.

Police believe Dahlia Sky, who had been an adult film actress for the past 10 years, shot herself in a car in what they described as a "potential suicide".

The 31-year-old's body was found in a car in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles in the US, on June 30. Officers say she died from a gunshot wound.

An official cause of death is yet to be confirmed, but LAPD detective Dave Peteque told US outlet Adult Video News (AVN) suicide is "what the investigation is leaning towards, and there's no evidence at this time that there's any foul play."

Before her death, the 31-year-old was reportedly suffering from depression due to her battle with stage four breast cancer.

Adult film producer Hans, who co-produced Dahlia's 2020 movie Always Dahlia Sky, told AVN her battle with cancer for several years had impacted her mental health.

"During her last year, I spoke to her several times about life. It was not an easy ride for her," he said.

"This will take a long time to get over, if it's even possible. Dahlia Sky, you beautiful soul, you funny, complicated, and warm-hearted friend! I am going to miss you so much."

In 2010., she launched her porn career using the name Bailey Blue, she was forced to change it four years later after a clothing company trademarked the moniker and sent her a cease and desist order.

However, the same year she was named Female Performer of the Year at the AVN Awards and received a further nine nominations for her starring role in the film Bailey Blue Wide Open.

She had worked on about 600 porn films over the last decade, including Sisters of Anarchy, Rocco's Coming in America and This Ain't Terminator XXX.
