Six days ago, the 29-year-old posted a view on social media which was believed to be his suicide note. This reported to the police and the department initiated a search after declaring him missing.
The NYPD brought their investigation to an end today after the body of the gamer was found. The police reported on Monday that his belongings had been found on the Manhattan Bridge.
Etika’s Twitch account has been deleted but his other social media handles which includes Twitter and Instagram are still active. Fans have taken to those media to share condolence messages with his family and friends.
His face showed despair, guilt & the acceptance of ending his life. We all got something inside us that we refuse to battle because of our environment & the negativity around us. The only people who should be sorry is us, we failed to help you in your hour of need. RIP Etika 💔 pic.twitter.com/hSu4XkPYXa
