Early life and career
Devi, an Indian American, was born Shunali Dhingra (Punjabi: ਏਂਜੇਲਾ ਸ਼ੁਨਾਲੀ ਢੀਂਗਰਾ) in New York City to a Punjabi family. She originally became known through her modeling work for Foxes.com and later on her own website.
On April 1, 2006, rumors began circulating that AngelaDevi.com had displayed an announcement that Devi had died and that the site was no longer available to new members. Within 24 hours the announcement of her death had been removed, but the site remained unavailable to new members, ultimately closing on April 30, 2006. Few claim actually seeing the notice, but most fans did see a message stating that the site would not be accepting new members, and would be closing on April 30, as it did. The domain's DNS records were removed shortly thereafter, but have since been restored and are redirecting to Rascaldog.com.
On August 6, Lukeisback.com, a website specializing in the gossip and behind-the-scenes activities of the porn industry, posted copies of the police report, filed April 1, regarding Devi's death. Devi's body was found inside her residence in Scottsdale, Arizona at about 10:17 a.m. on March 31. The official cause of death was suicide by asphyxiation. A garbage bag in the kitchen was found to contain "a glass with a straw and several empty Xanax packages. The empty packages previously contained 115 0.5 mg pills that were unaccounted for."
