Death in the Juggalo Family: Tonya “Syko” Short Passes Away

Our homie -KM- hit us up with some tragic news from a few days ago.  A Juggalette named Tonya “Syko” Short unfortunately and unexpectedly passed away.  She was only 26, and was involved in a ton of promo for underground artists and labels.  KM does a great job speaking on what she meant to everyone from her online homies, to her close personal friends and family.  Check out his statement below.

From Killa-MO187:

The Killa-mo 187 family lost one of their own over the weekend in Tonya “Syko” Short. who died unexpectedly and suddenly at the young age of 26. Her contributions included not only online promo work for Killa-mo 187 dating back to 2009’s TWA but also vocal contributions as she made her debut as a musican on the song “Twizted Luv” on KM’s 2012 album “The Final Countdown”. That would be followed up with her own solo song titled “Ragdoll” [which you can listen to at] which was to be on an album that never got finished that was titled 2 different titles. Matter of fact I still have a beat I made in 2012 for the project she requested. Might get used now in tribute.
Our thoughts and condolences at this time go to her entire family and friends. If you would like to help with her final expenses you can donate to a go fund me page her mother Wendy launched over the weekend:

For those wondering yes that go-fund-me page is legit and it was made by her mother Wendy Pierson as at the time of Tonya’s death she had no life insurance (something that I guess is apparently common for people under 30) and the goal is round the 3 grand mark to help pay for final expenses.

Tonya was a juggalette through and through, she was a huge fan of Sicktanick and SKR and even went as far as to have Sick’s name tatted on her back. She was a “no fucks given” woman with a heart of gold and would always help out those in need which is a rare thing for people her age. She took the name “Syko” over an obsession with one of horrorcore’s biggest eyesores Syko Sam (whom none of us like to talk about) and even exchanged letters with McCroskey. I knew Tonya what would now be 10 years. I was 25 and she was 18, and we just instantly clicked. We lost contact for a bit over decisions (we all have demons) and other things but recently we reconnected and she came to my defense out of nowhere when I found myself in a bit of a controversy. She’ll greatly be missed by many and I’m a better person for knowing her

R.I.P. My little Syko.

Our condolences go out to Tonya’s friends and family.  Rest in Peace Ninjette.
