August Ames is known for her role in over 290 adult films and has won two AVN awards in 2015 and 2017 because of it. The 23-year-old who is from Nova Scotia, Canada, was found dead in her Camarillo, California home on Monday, December 5th.

According to Independent, police have found no indication of foul play that leads to her passing but fear August may have taken her own life. 

Her husband, film director Kevin Moore, released a statement saying, "She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me. Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time."

Her death comes just a few days after she was criticized for saying she refused to do porn with men who have also had sex with men.

Brazzers, an online destination for porn, postponed a video with August that was set to air last night in respect of her passing.
