Keshia Chante’s Ex-Fiance And Former Hockey Player, Ray Emery Dead At 35
Former National Hockey League goalie Ray Emery, and for former fiance of “106 & Park” host Keshia Chant died this past weekend in a drowning accident while swimming in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario.
According to ESPN.com, Hamilton Police Department Emery had been reported missing at 6 am on Sunday morning. Later, in the afternoon, his body was recovered near the location where he had last been seen.
Authorities say the drowning does not appear to have included any foul play. First responders were able to locate Emery’s body quickly once they’d called the dive unit. But the search took longer than expected because of concerns for the divers.
The inspector called Emery’s death “a case of misadventure.”
Emery played with the NHL for 11 seasons, winning the Stanley Cup in 2013.
The NHL expressed their condolences with this tweet:
As we reported earlier, Keshia Chante called off the couple’s engagement last October after appearing on the cover of Today’s Bride.
A month before the announcement, Emery was arrested for a physical altercation where Emery threw an object at Chante. When she went to authorities, Chante alleged that Emery had abused her on several different occasions from July- September 2016. She presented enough evidence for police to determine that a warrant for his arrest was necessary.
And even though she was able to recognize that a marriage between the two of them would not have worked out, she did post a very moving tribute to Emery on her Instagram page, calling him the love of her life.
Condolences to Keshia and Ray’s family and friends.
