Demri Lara Parrot was a beautiful woman and most people who will come here looking for information will come because they know her as Layne Staley’s girlfriend or because they knew her and are curious what they’ll find online about her. Well, unfortunately there’s not a lot of information online about Demri. Very few people have posted pictures and even fewer of her friends have come forward to talk about her. Why? I’m not sure. Maybe they think it’s rude to write about her online.. I don’t share that opinion.
She was my friend and I know people who love Layne and his music are interested in finding out who she was and I think she’d think that was cool. I also know that she would like it if someone she knew posted her pictures and talked about who she was. Demri was incredible and she deserves to be remembered.
Demri passed away Oct. 29, 1996 and those who knew her.. miss her. I think about her often.
I’m dedicating this page to Demri and Layne and their love, life and friendship.

Rosheen Raugi (my best friend and Dem’s girlfriend) and Demri Parrott
Demri was a close friend of mine for many years and losing her hurt everyone that loved her. If you’ve read some of the stories about her online, please take them with a grain of salt and take heed to the sources.
Pay attention to the ones that say she was super funny and beautiful and a very sick “tiny” little girl who was basically seduced and taken captive by heroin. She was a talented young woman who died before she even turned 30 or got the chance to have a child or have a career or get married. She missed out on so many things because of a little bad luck, drugs and her stubburn ass. I always used to say she burned her candle at both ends and that was truly how she lived her life and no one could reign her in. No one.
If I could say one thing to the people who are searching her out online. I’d say.. never do hard drugs and I’m not just saying that because that’s the right thing to say in this situation I’m saying it because that’s what Demri would want me to say. She loved people and she’d never want to think that people romantasized her life and her death and maybe tried heroin to see what it was like because her and Layne did it. Just remember you can die the first time you do it and never forget that. If your already addicted then please get help. Soon.
If you ever need to talk please feel free to contact me and please leave comments below in memory of Demri and Layne.
Maybe she was a Sucubus?… Maybe? I don’t think she meant to be if she was but two of my friends who were lovers of hers.. are dead and died YOUNG!
Please leave a comment in memory of Demri Parrot.
People have even made tribute videos to Demri and Layne which I think is really cool.. this is one of them..
