Starner entered a treatment hospital for bulimia. Shelby continued treatment over the next two years. Tragically Starner's body gave in to the detriments of her long bout with bulimia and due to electrolyte imbalances that caused brain swelling, stroke, and seizure, she died on June 22, 2003. She was 19 years old.[2]
